Mayor Gahan is proud to announce his full support for the New Albany Floyd County Schools referendum as proposed by the administration and adopted by the school board.
“After touring the schools and reviewing the conditions in New Albany and Floyd County, I am excited to support the many improvements in store for our students in New Albany-Floyd County Schools.
Each renovation and addition will improve the safety of the students, the value of surrounding property, the strength of our neighborhoods, and most importantly, the opportunity for our children and young adults to excel now and in the future.
This should be the easiest vote we ever make – a yes vote means we will receive $87 million of local school improvements, all for the same rate we are currently paying today. A yes vote keeps the tax rate at the current level, and drastically improves our community and future.
I plan to spend the next few months making clear to everyone the importance of passing the NAFCS referendum. Great schools are an essential economic driver, and our collective health and the growth of New Albany and surrounding areas depend on our ability to continually improve. It’s important for us to remain the scholastic leader in the region, and these improvements help accomplish that mission."
