A Bond must be approved by voters and can only be used for capital costs, such as building construction/renovation and vehicle and equipment purchases.
The district sells the bonds to investors; uses the bond sale proceeds for construction and capital expenditures; and then pays it back over a specific period of time, (usually 20-30 years) similar to a mortgage. In Idaho a bond requires a two-thirds majority vote for approval.
