BISD to provide more information on bond election


By Scott Harvey

Bonham – Community forums have been scheduled for this week in Bonham to address this month's nearly $25 million bond election to impact both the High School and I.W. Evans Intermediate School.

Tuesday's meeting will take place at 6 p.m. at the High School cafeteria, while I.W. Evans will host a meeting Thursday, also at 6 p.m. At the conclusion of each meeting, interested citizens will be provided the opportunity to tour the campuses. Brian Grubbs of Southwest Securities, Inc. will be available Thursday to address any bond finance related questions including the calculation of the 25-cent I&S tax rate impact.

Proposed improvements will address building code deficiencies and creation of a new High School library, plus construction of eight new classrooms and a new gymnasium at I.W. Evans.
