Huntsville ISD Tax Ratification Election

Published on October 26, 2017 by Larry Crippen

The Huntsville ISD Board of Trustees have arranged for a Tax Ratification Election on November 7th to allow local voters to approve a change on how the school district collects taxes to maximize their funding from the state.

Interim Huntsville ISD Superintendent Fred Rush explained to us recently how their plan works. He said, “What this is going to be is really a swap of six pennies from our I&S side of our tax rate, and that’s where you pay your debt off, your bonds, over to the M&O side . . . .”

 

Rush added that that $750,000 would be “on top of the 1.2 that we generate from our local taxpayers.” He said, “This would be every year from here on.”

Interim Superintendent Rush will be our guest on “Around Town” this weekend.
