Como-Pickton Consolidated Independent School District Board of Trustees have called a special meeting to consider approving the proposed budget and tax rate proposed for fiscal year 2019-2020, which begins on Sept. 1.
A public hearing will be conducted on both the proposed budget and tax rate, then the trustees will be asked to adopt each. The C-P CISD tax rate, as proposed, would be 97-cents per $100 property valuation, which is 7-cents lower than the 2018-19 tax rate.
School trustees after considering the budget and tax rate are scheduled to meet in executive session to consult with an attorney “regarding possible economic development with the district.”
The special school board meeting will begin at 5 p.m. Monday, Aug. 26, in the C-P Conference Center, located on the school property at 13017 State Highway 11 east.
