Original post

Early voting results show approval for all four Liberty Hill ISD bond proposals, according to Williamson County Elections Department.


As of 7:05 p.m., results showed about 71.06% of votes in favor of Proposition A; 72.68% of voters are in favor of Proposition B; 61.39% of votes are in favor of Proposition C; and 55.16% of votes are in favor of Proposition D.

Proposition A, of $457.7 million, would construct two new elementary schools, a new third middle school and a new second high school. It would also expand and complete renovations at Liberty Hill Elementary and Louine Noble Elementary schools, Liberty Hill Middle and Santa Rita Middle schools, and Liberty Hill High School.

It would also improve career and technical education facilities, districtwide campus security and technology infrastructure as well as support land acquisition and designs for future schools, among other needs.

Proposition B, of $8 million, would purchase new technology devices for students and staff.

Proposition C, of $6 million, would expand the Liberty Hill High School stadium with additional 5,000-seat capacity and additional restrooms that are Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant.

Proposition D, of $20 million, would build a new stadium for new High School No. 2 with competition field and seats.

Approximately 1,385 LHISD students live in Georgetown, according to district officials. Another 238 live in Leander.

If approved by voters, this bond will be accomplished without an increase to the district’s tax rate, due to rapid growth in the area, officials said. However, increasing property values could result in higher taxes.

The LHISD board of trustees called for a $491.7 million bond election with four propositions in February.
