TEHAMA COUNTY, Calif. - In Tehama County, there are three measures to be decided by voters next Tuesday. One is to bring improvements to Gerber Elementary School.

Measure E will be decided only by people who live within the Gerber Union Elementary School District.

The district has just one school: a kindergarten through eighth school.

Measure E would allow the district to sell bonds for up to $4 million. That is estimated to bring in about $220,000 each year.

The money would be used primarily to improve student security and safety like a new student pick-up/drop-off area and reconfiguring the campus to include a single point of entry.

The bond money would also allow the district to build new classrooms to replace old portable buildings.

But voters would be agreeing to a tax of 2.7 cents for every $100 of assessed value. Meaning a $200,000 home would pay $54 a year.

A "yes" vote on Measure E would approve the bond issue.

A "no" vote would reject the measure.

Measure E requires a 55% approval to pass.

Sunny skies and warmer temperatures are on the way for your Sunday. We'll be mostly sunny and just about as warm on Monday. A modest cooling trend and the chance for Sierra showers is ahead for Tuesday.
