Roseville City School District completes bonds refinancing

Roseville City School District completed the refinancing of $17.2 million in voter-approved general obligation bonds Dec. 6. The district refinanced the debt at an interest rate of 3.21 percent, which will amount to taxpayer savings of more than $1.8 million, according to a news release.

The refinanced bonds were part of the district’s 2002 Measure H bond initiative that received 61 percent voter approval. The bonds were used for electrical wiring upgrades for new technology, plumbing infrastructure modernization, construction of classrooms, installation of energy-efficient heating and cooling systems, construction of a centralized administration facility and more.

“The timing of refinancing voter-approved debt and saving taxpayers nearly $2 million dollars demonstrates that the (school) board continues to act in a fiscally prudent manner,” said Superintendent Richard Pierucci, in the release.

Miller elected RCSD board president

Roseville City School District school board member Gary Miller was elected president of the board Dec. 8. He has served on the board since winning a seat in the 2008 election. Miller previously served on the Robla School Board in north Sacramento for nearly 20 years, winning re-election four times. He is running for re-election to the RCSD board in 2012.

Mayor Roccucci visits Adelante High School

Mayor Pauline Roccucci visited Heather McQueen’s government classes at Adelante High School Dec. 14 to discuss her responsibilities as mayor. She answered students’ questions about the city budget, road repair and her experiences as mayor.

“It’s imperative that students understand local government, and who better to discuss local government with the students than the mayor?” McQueen said. “Also, I think it’s important for students to become involved in government, whether it’s voting when they turn 18 or becoming politically active.”
