The Northside Independent School District will hold a public meeting at 7 p.m. Aug. 20, 2013 in the Board room in the Central Office administration building, 5900 Evers Road, San Antonio, TX 78238.
The purpose of this meeting is to discuss the school district's budget that will determine the tax rate that will be adopted.
Public participation is invited.
Trustees will consider a tax rate of $1.3755 which is zero increase from the previous year. In fact, Northside has not raised the tax rate for the past three years. The proposed tax rate is still almost 9 cents less than what was projected in School Bond 2010.
The proposed tax rate is comprised of two parts: the Maintenance & Operations tax of $1.04 and the Interest & Sinking tax of $.3355.
On an average home in Northside, which is valued at $164,615, the increase in taxes would be $3.69 month.
Trustees commented that the Board and administration have held the line on raising taxes in spite of the District growing by approximately 9,000 students and the opening of eight new schools in the last three years.
