Red River taxpayers got good news this month from the School Board. Your school taxes are not increasing for 2019.
Board Finance Director David Jones explained, “These are the same millage rates that were adopted in 2018. There will be no increase for 2019.”
The board’s Finance Committee send the issue to the full board for a vote. The full board voted 5-0 in favor of a resolution to adopt the same millage rates for 2019. There are four issues included in that motion.
A separate motion was required to adopt the rates for the General Obligation Bonds. The vote was 5-0 in favor. Those bonds are the revenue source for new construction taking place on the high school campus and sports complex.
