Burkburnett Public Meeting On Tax Rate

The Burkburnett ISD's Board of Trustees says a tax rate, which was the topic of a public hearing Tuesday night, will remain the same.

Trustees looked for public opinion on whether they should keep the Maintenance and Operating tax rate at $1.31.

At their regularly scheduled meeting Tuesday, they approved the rate.

The proposed rate would dedicate a $1.17 to the district's maintenance and operations.

The other 14 cents would go to interest and the school district's bonded debt.

Trustees plan to pull $250,000 from the "Reserved for Construction Fund" to cover a projected deficit for this school year.
