Hamann, pictured at left, told the Chamber he will be asking the LBCC Board of Trustees in June 2014 to approve a $34 million bond levy that would be put before voters on the November 2014 ballot.
The general obligation bond would cover capital construction projects at East Linn Center and Advanced Transportation Technology Center in Lebanon, and at the Benton Center in Corvallis. The bond will also fund maintenance improvements at the Albany campus.
Rates would be at 18 cents per $1,000, about the same as a $19 million bond measure passed in 2000. The infrastructure developments with help keep LBCC up-to-date in fast moving industry sectors such as health care and advanced fuels, Hamann noted.
"This is a real exciting opportunity to serve the community in the future," Hamann told the Chamber. The LBCC board is scheduled to vote on both the proposed bond measure and the budget at its next meeting, June 18.
