Bond advisory committee presents $600 million referendum to Humble ISD board of trustees

0

The Humble ISD Citizens Bond Advisory Committee presented two options to the HISD board of trustees during a Jan. 9 meeting.

The two packages—which both approached $600 million—outlined the projects the group recommends for a bond referendum that could be called in May. District officials said $600,000 is the maximum amount that HISD can borrow without increasing its tax rate.

The board of trustees will decide in February if it will call for a bond referendum.

While the two packages contain some differences in projects, the group achieved consensus on others. For instance, both packages include funding for a new practice gym at each high school, a complete replacement of Lakeland Elementary School and Kingwood Middle School and two new schools.

New construction:

Elementary School No. 30, $39 million

Middle School No. 10, $65.5 million


Transportation Center, $19.3 million

Kingwood Agricultural Barn, $5.8 million

Field turf for baseball/softball complex at Turner complex, $2.3 million
