DENISON, TX---If you live in the city of Denison, your taxes could soon go up. At a meeting Tuesday night, the Denison School Board approved a rollback election to be held in October.

If voters approve the rollback election, property taxes would increase by an average by $80 to $85 dollars per year. That money would then go to the school district, and would also make Denison eligible for state funding---funding the district desperately needs. Right now the school district is operating with an $800,000 deficit, so Superintendent Dr. Henry Scott proposed the rollback election.

Dr. Scott said, "We've got to go out in the community and make them aware exactly where the money is going to be spent and show them the value in doing that."

If voters approve the rollback in October, the money generated will be used to pay for DISD’S increasing electric bill, new computers, and salary increases for teachers, to name a few.
