NOTICE OF SALES AND USE TAX FOR EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES

ELECTION ON MARCH 17, 2015

Pursuant to a resolution adopted by the Board of Education of Gilmer County (the “Board of Education”), the managing and controlling body of the Gilmer County School District (the “School District”), on November 20, 2014, and a call of election issued by the Judge of Probate Court of Gilmer County, as Election Superintendent, notice is hereby given as follows:

1. On March 17, 2015, an election will be held in Gilmer County to submit to the qualified voters of Gilmer County the following question:

RENEWAL OF 1% EDUCATIONAL SALES TAX

( ) YES

( ) NO

Shall a one percent sales and use tax for educational purposes be imposed in the Gilmer County School District for a period of time not to exceed twenty (20) consecutive calendar quarters and for the raising of not more than $25,000,000 for the purpose of acquiring, constructing, and equipping the following capital outlay projects: (a) technology to be used to support all facilities for teaching and learning at all facilities, including computers, laptops, tablets, mobile devices, servers, wiring, wireless antennas, and other technology upgrades with necessary hardware, software, and programs; (b) the purchase of new school buses, fleet maintenance vehicles, and equipment; (c) renovations and improvements at Gilmer High School in the student common areas, restrooms, classrooms, media center, and other areas; (d) an agricultural complex including a show barn, a new cannery and other agricultural related support facilities and equipment; (e) athletic facilities renovations and improvements including a new track, turf fields, a practice field for band, athletics, and extracurricular activities, bleachers, and stadium improvements and equipment; and (f) acquisition, construction, and equipping of real and personal property, site improvements, safety and security equipment, renovations, additions and improvements to facilities and upgrades; in accordance with the facilities plans of the School District, as the same may be revised in accordance with the needs of the School District

If imposition of the tax is approved by the voters, such vote shall also constitute approval of the issuance of general obligation debt of the Gilmer County School District in the principal amount not to exceed $12,500,000 for the above capital outlay purposes and for the payment of capitalized interest.

2. All qualified voters desiring to vote in favor of imposing the one percent sales and use tax for educational purposes (the “Educational Sales Tax”) shall vote “Yes” and all qualified voters opposed to levying the Educational Sales Tax shall vote “No.” If more than one-half of the votes cast are in favor of imposing the Educational Sales Tax, then such tax shall be imposed beginning upon the termination of the Educational Sales Tax presently in effect, and shall cease to be imposed on the earlier of (a) 20 calendar quarters after the tax is imposed (five years) or (b) as of the end of the calendar quarter during which the Commissioner of the Georgia Department of Revenue determines that the Educational Sales Tax will have raised revenues sufficient to provide to the net proceeds equal to or greater than the amount specified as the maximum amount of net proceeds to be raised by the Educational Sales Tax.

3. The specific projects which the Board of Education currently expects to fund from general obligation debt and proceeds of the Educational Sales Tax are as follows:

(a) technology to be used to support all facilities for teaching and learning at all facilities, including computers, laptops, tablets, mobile devices, servers, wiring, wireless antennas, and other technology upgrades in accordance with the facility plans of the School District with necessary hardware, software, and programs;

(b) the purchase of new school buses, fleet maintenance vehicles, and equipment;

(c) renovations and improvements at Gilmer High School in the student common areas, restrooms, classrooms, media center, and other areas;

(d) an agricultural complex including a show barn, a new cannery and other agricultural related support facilities and equipment as plans may be revised in accordance with the needs of the School District;

(e) athletic facilities renovations and improvements including a new track, turf fields, a practice field for band, athletics, and extracurricular activities, bleachers, and stadium improvements and equipment in accordance with the facilities plans of the School District, as the same may be revised in accordance with the needs of the School District; and

(f) acquisition, construction, and equipping of real and personal property, site improvements, safety and security equipment, renovations, additions and improvements to facilities, and upgrades in accordance with the facilities plans of the School District, as the same may be revised in accordance with the needs of the School District.

4. The estimated cost of the capital outlay projects to be funded with Educational Sales Tax proceeds, including interest, capitalized interest and cost of issuance on the general obligation debt to be incurred, is $25,000,000, which will constitute the maximum amount of net proceeds of the Educational Sales Tax to be received by the School District.

5. To the extent available, the School District may combine available funds from the State of Georgia with proceeds from the Educational Sales Tax and the general obligation debt, and any other available funds, to pay the costs of the capital outlay projects. Plans and specifications for these projects have not been completed and bids have not been received. Depending upon acquisition and construction costs and available funds, the School District may establish or reestablish priorities and choose which capital outlay projects to undertake or not undertake, or to delay until additional funding is available, to the extent that proceeds of the Educational Sales Tax and the general obligation debt, together with other available funds actually received by the School District, are insufficient to complete any of the capital outlay projects.

6. If such Educational Sales Tax is to be imposed, the Board of Education may issue general obligation debt on behalf of the School District, in an aggregate principal amount not to exceed $12,500,000. The proceeds from such general obligation debt, if issued, shall be used to fund all or a portion of the capital outlay projects described in this Notice. The maximum rate or rates of interest on such debt shall not exceed six percent (6.0%) per annum. The maximum amount of principal to be paid in each year during the life of the debt shall be as follows:

Year Principal Amount Maturing

Year 1 $2,370,000

Year 2 2,415,000

Year 3 2,490,000

Year 4 2,560,000

Year 5 2,665,000

The Board of Education may issue aggregate general obligation debt which is less than $12,500,000 and reduce the principal amounts maturing in each year which are shown above.

7. Reference is hereby made to the Official Code of Georgia Annotated §36-82-1(d) which provides in part that any brochures, listings, or other advertisements issued by the Board of Education or by any other person, firm, corporation or association with the knowledge and consent of the Board of Education shall be deemed to be a statement of intention of the Board of Education concerning the use of bond funds.

8. The last day to register to vote in the election is Tuesday February 17, 2015. Anyone desiring to register may do so by applying in person at the voter registration office located at 1 Broad Street Suite 107, Gilmer County, Ellijay, Georgia 30540, or by any other method authorized by the Georgia Election Code.

9. The election will be held on Tuesday, March 17, 2015. The polls will be open from 7:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m.

This November 21, 2014.
