The Portland Community College board approved a resolution Thursday night to put a measure on the November ballot to renew the college’s existing bond

If approved, the measure would not increase the tax rate, because it is a renewal of an expiring bond, passed by voters in 2000.

The bond money would provide $185 million in funding to be directed toward modernizing PCC’s job training centers, increasing the lifespan of facilities and reducing long term costs.

If approved, the bond is estimated to maintain the fiscal year 2017 tax rate of 40 cents per $1,000 of assessed value.
