2015 Bond Information

OVERVIEW

On August 18, 2015, the CSISD Board of Trustees unanimously approved calling a bond election for November 3, 2015, for an amount of $135.9 million. If passed by the voters, the bond sale will have a property tax impact of $.06 to $.10 per $100 of valuation for the 2016-17 fiscal year - depending on the terms of the bonds at the time of the sale.

Note: For the 2013 bond issuance of $83.5 million, CSISD conservatively projected a tax impact of $.05 to $.08. The actual increase was approximately $.06 per $100 of valuation.
