Board Members in the Victoria I.S.D. approve $141 million bond proposal

Victoria– Late Thursday night Board Members in the Victoria I.S.D. approved a 2017 Bond Proposal that addresses a total of 30 projects in the district.

The $141,200,000 dollars would improve facilities, enhance safety and security, update technology and communication infrastructures, increase community engagement and maximize student learning opportunities. The average homeowner with a $100,000 home could see an annual property tax increase of $74.70. Homeowners over the age of 65 are exempt under the “Homestead Exemption Act”.

The three new campuses would include Mission Valley Elementary, Smith Elementary, Stroman Middle School and Shields Elementary.

$35,000,000 is allocated for a new Multi-Activity Complex which includes a new football and soccer stadium with an 8-lane competition track, new restroom facilities, new concession stands, new locker rooms, a new press box with an elevator, new stadium lights, a new scoreboard, a new sound system, new parking and renovation of the current ROTC building.

Voters will now review the proposal and vote on it this November.
