Royal ISD TAX RATIFICATION ELECTION*!
August 19, 2017 @ 7:00 am - 7:00 pm
ROYAL INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT
TAX RATIFICATION ELECTION*
Royal ISD voters can generate an estimated additional $1.6 million for Maintenance and Operations (M&O) without increasing its total tax rate of $1.528817 from 2015 by approving a tax swap in a Tax Ratification Election (TRE). A tax swap raises the M&O tax rate $0.13 and drops the I&S (Interest and Sinking (debt service) tax rate $0.13.
The Royal ISD Board of Trustees has called a Tax Ratification Election (TRE) for Saturday, August 19, 2017. The Board adopted a $1.17 per $100 valuation maintenance and operations tax rate on July 10, 2017. This $1.17 tax rate is $0.13 higher than the rollback rate. Therefore, state law required the school board to call the TRE.
RISD Education Foundation, Waller County Economic Development Partnership, City of Pattison and RISD have passed Resolutions in support of the proposed change.
