SSISD bond rate better than expected; tax rate won’t go up as much as first thought

It turns out that Sulphur Springs Independent School District officials were dead wrong when they estimated taxes would go up about 30 cents per $100 of property value if voters approved a $48.4 million bond proposal in May. It’s going to be a good bit less, and that’s a good thing, said SSISD Director of Finance Mikki Eddins.

“It’s good news,” said Eddins. “We were very, very pleased at the news.”


For the Memorial

The donation, which will be distributed over a 3-year period, will help build the memorial on the courthouse square, as depicted on the model in front of the men. The veterans welcome any donations from the community.
