Tom Bean ISD Board of Trustees proposing tax increase

By  | 

TOM BEAN, TX -- At Monday's Tom Bean school board meeting the trustees voted to put a 13 cent tax increase on the November ballot.

Superintendent Troy Roberts says they want to raise the Maintenance and Operations rate from $1.04 to $1.17, which would ultimately create $600,000 dollars that the schools could use on new programs for students, higher pay to retain staff and further improve the schools and operations.
