OISD trustees propose rate swap

lton school taxes are not going up, but school trustees are proposing a $1.12 tax rate that will require voter approval for a “tax swap” in a tax ratification election set for Saturday, July 28.

On a 7-0 vote, trustees approved a motion by Troy Don Allcorn to set the district’s proposed tax rate at $1.12, which is exactly what it is right now. Alicia Sanchez seconded Allcorn’s motion. Then, Michael Ramage moved to call the state-required TRE for July 28. Board Vice President Ruben Luera seconded that motion, which passed on a 7-0 vote. Finally, Board Secretary Jesus “Chuy” De La Cruz moved to set hearings on the proposed $1.12 tax rate on June 25 and July 23 at Olton Schools Cafeteria. Tullie Struve provided the second for that motion, which passed on a 7-0 vote.
