Huffman ISD Brings 2016 Bond to Voters
To address continued growth in the Huffman area, the Huffman Independent School District will go to the voters May 7 in an effort to approve a $44,100,000 bond; early voting is April 25-May 3.
To outline future projects and needs for the district, 50 residents from the Huffman area made up a Citizen Advisory Committee (CAC) who met to discuss options for six months and presented their findings at the February Huffman ISD board meeting.
If approved, the estimated maximum tax impact is anticipated to be 12 cents for a total tax rate of $1.52. This represents an increase of approximately $10 a month for $100,000 of taxable home value.
“Huffman has been growing slowly for several years and over the last few years, working with a demographer, we’ve seen our growth increase,” Huffman ISD superintendent Dr. Benny Soileau said. “We know some of our buildings are near or at capacity so we want to stay ahead of the curve. This is a good opportunity for us to pursue a bond issue to accommodate the growth.”
