CISD sets informational meetings about bond issue
Cameron ISD voters have chances to learn more about the upcoming proposals for a bond election for the school district in the coming weeks.
Cameron ISD has scheduled a series of community meetings to discuss and get information on the upcoming bond election. A meeting will be held on Oct. 13 in the Yoe High Commons and will include tours of Old Yoe.
The bond is being proposed at $14.5 million and will cover construction, renovation, improvement, and equipment of existing school buildings and facilities in the district, including the original Yoe High School building for a career and technical education center and enhancement of the agricultural science program facilities.
If approved, CISD Superintendent Kevin Sprinkles noted there would be no overall net increase to the district tax rate thanks to growth in property values in the district.
Sprinkles expects the district will be able to make all required debt payments without having to increase the I&S tax rate, which is used to pay outstanding debt obligations. While the ballot will include the phrase “This is a Property Tax Increase,” it will not effect the tax rate.
Early voting will begin Oct. 18 and run through Oct. 29. Election Day will be Nov.
More information will be available through the Cameron ISD website and social media accounts.
