Please watch our 2021 Goochland Bond Referendum video above.
Two referendum questions will be placed on the November 2, 2021 general-election ballot in Goochland. Voters will be asked to indicate "yes" or "no" on whether the county should issue general obligation debt in the amounts of:
Up to $60 million for public schools projects
Up to $36 million for courts, law enforcement and public safety projects
Goochland is required by state law to get voter approval before issuing debt for capital projects. Officials have determined the county would be able to manage the new debt without any increase to the real estate tax rate, which stands at 53 cents per $100 of assessed value.
A series of community meetings conducted by Goochland County and Goochland County Public Schools will be held in September and October to inform citizens of the upcoming bond referendum that will appear on the November ballot. Read on...
