City View committee presents $10 million school bond idea

Local News

City View ISD is one step closer to working on needed improvements in the school district.

A committee of tax-payers walked through the campuses a few months back and saw for themselves the damages and the lack of space available for students.

After detailed planning, the committee presented a $10 million bond idea to the school board which was approved on Wednesday.

The CVISD superintendent is confident the bond will be passed in May’s election, and he’s ready to kickstart construction.

“We’re already preparing for that we’ve got architects in place,” CVISD Superintendent Tony Bushong said. “Once this bond passes, we will be ready to move forward with the things this community has chosen to do.”

Bushong said foundation damages alone total $1 million.

Other improvements include classroom additions, fixing bathrooms, changing 40-year old A/C and heating units and more.

If passed, residents will see an $0.08 tax increase per $1,000 of assessed value.
