Bryan school board members take the next step to get a head start on more construction projects, if voters approve a $175 million dollar bond issue in November.
Unanimous approval was given at the board’s last meeting to chief financial officer Kevin Beesaw’s request to proceed with planning phases that will accelerate the start of some of the projects.
Superintendent Christie Whitbeck says this would not apply to bigger ticket items.
The bond issue, which BISD administrators say will not result in a property tax rate increase, will also pay for a third intermediate school and a new transportation and maintenance facility. The bond issue also ask voters to renovate the old portion of Stephen F. Austin middle school and add classrooms at Rudder high school.
