Members of the Citizens Bond Advisory Committee discuss what projects to put on the bond at its July 16 meeting.

Members of a Keller ISD bond committee selected projects to propose for a bond election this November.

The citizens bond advisory committee met for the third time July 16 to determine what projects from the long range facility plan to put on a bond. The committee looked at the top 24 projects from the plan and selected 11 to put on the bond.

The selected projects amount to $314,714,430. The committee will present it to the board of trustees at the July 22 meeting. The board will then call a special meeting in August to determine if the bond is to go to voters for a Nov. 5 election.

Matthew Mucker, a member of the 2019 and 2014 committees, said he is looking forward to the potential this bond can bring.

"I'm excited about the benefits it can bring to my children," Mucker said.
