At a special meeting on Thursday, Aug. 15, the Fort Stockton ISD School Board voted to put an $85 million bond issue on the Nov. 5, 2019 ballot.
Voters within the district with decide whether to approve or reject the bond measure.
The Pioneer is awaiting the final draft of the bond, which will detail each item to be addressed by the bond.
If a bond is approved, the money may only be used for specific items detailed in the measure.
The Pioneer is also working on what the cost of the bond would be to taxpayers in the district, as well as a look at the reasons for the various projects.
We will have more as the story develops.
