North Lamar ISD cancels $48.9 million school bond
PARIS, Texas (KXII) - The North Lamar Independent School District has canceled a nearly $50 million school bond set for the November election.
The North Lamar Board of Trustees voted unanimously on Tuesday to cancel the $48.9 million bond.
“I don’t think it is fair to the taxpayers right now. They are under enough stress. A lot of them don’t know where their next check is coming from or anything else. We desperately need this bond to pass, but I just think it is bad timing,” said board member Stephen Holmes.
The election had originally been set for May but was pushed back to November due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Voters in the district will still be filling two open seats on the school board.
