Referendum Results 1985 to 2007

Since 1985, voters rejected tax rate increases 4 times and accepted a rate increase 3 times.  In every case, the rate increase was requested a second time before it passed.  During the same period, 7 bonds referendum for construction passed while 2 were defeated.  In both cases the original request was defeated and then a second request, at a lower dollar amount, was asked and passed.  The attachment shows dates, results, and any next steps.  This attachment even includes the detailed press statement provided after the almost $80 million 2007 referendum passed by 100 votes. This recap was taken directly from the Geneva School District website and placed into a flow chart.
