Marfa ISD Board of Trustees Calls Bond Election Following a recommendation from the district’s Bond Advisory Committee, the Marfa ISD Board of Trustees unanimously called a bond election for November 8, 2022. If approved, the proposition totaling $57 million would fund a new K-12 school, a career and technical education addition at the high school, and more. The district’s Bond Advisory Committee of approximately 20 people, representing a cross-section of the community met this summer to identify district priorities for the future. This committee of parents, grandparents, alumni, MISD staff, retirees, elected officials, and law enforcement all offered unique perspectives as the group worked to identify district facility challenges and a consensus recommendation for the Board of Trustees regarding a possible bond election. After touring district facilities, learning about school finance and MISD’s historical tax rate, and speaking with administration about academic focus and long-range plans, committee members reached consensus on a list of prioritized needs. The group then discussed its recommendation to the Board, and Trustees held a special meeting August 16, 2022, to call the November election. “I sincerely appreciate the service of our Bond Advisory Committee and want to thank each and every member for helping us prepare for the future,” said Superintendent Oscar Aguero. “The proposal that was recommended and called, if approved, could not only increase academic and career training options, but improve the facility’s safety for all students and staff.” On their ballots, MISD voters will see a proposition for $57million. The projected monthly tax impact, upon passage of the new $40,000 homestead exemption, will be approximately $47.00 a month (based on a $200,000 home). However, there will be no tax increase for taxpayers 65 years of age and older who have applied for and received the “age 65 freeze of school homestead taxes.” Proposed projects include: • New K-12 Campus • Career and technical education addition at the high school • Additional district-wide improvements If anyone has questions or would like more information regarding the bond election, they may call MISD administration at 432-729-5500 or send an email to oaguero@marfaisd.com
