Tucson Unified School District's Governing Board voted on Tuesday to put a bond on the ballot in November.

The $180 million bond would address the district's critical needs, including heating and cooling systems, plumbing, flooring, and lights.

The money would be paid out over 20 years.

The district still has more repairs it needs to be done, but the district says it would need $509 million to cover all of them.

If the bond is approved, it will cost the homeowners within TUSD $93.98 a year.

The district also outlines the projected costs for the election.

The total projected recorder costs using Pima County recorders would be $474,482.

The total election costs would be $356,906.

If schools are used as polling sites, the costs drop to $300,906.

The vote is scheduled for November 7th.
