Kerrville ISD Wants Bond Improvements

About 75 percent of the Kerrville school district’s budget is made up of local property taxes and the rest comes from the state. Less money has been coming from the state over the past few years, and that puts pressure on local districts to put some projects on the backburner and prioritize others. The Daily Times reports the Kerrville ISD presented a new bond measure to Kerr County Commissioners this week with $108 million worth of long term projects that address safety and security, aging infrastructure and handicapped accessibility upgrades. A top priority is replacing Hal Peterson Middle School. If it’s passed by voters on November 6th, the average homeowner in Kerrville could see a property tax increase of about $11 a month.
