Oct. 8, 2006 - Progress on Phase II of the district's facility construction plan, changes in House Bill 1 pertaining to school board elections and when they can be conducted, and a church's request to have outstanding delinquent taxes dismissed top Thursday night's Como-Pickton board meeting.
A report on the progress to the facility master plan which would see construction of new facilities, reorganization and renovation of existing facilities and demolition of structures which are no longer structurally sound, will be presented. The most recent plan would span 20 years and include construction of a new high school and junior high school, as well as baseball field, library and many other improvements.
The board will also consider Pickton Methodist Church's request that the church's delinquent tax be stricken from the tax roll. The church sites "new clarification from the Hopkins County Appraisal District" as the basis for asking that the debt be waived. For the last 3 years Pickton Methodist has been taxed on property that was donated to the church by various land owners. The tax assessed by the appraisal district was in error, thus the church is asking that it be removed, the agenda notes of the request.
Trustees will also hear a report on district tax collections both current and delinquent, and will be asked to approve expenditures designated for this� month. A report of the school's historical initiative and district and campus goals for improvement will also be presented.
The consent agenda includes the monthly financial report, the monthly investment report and approval of the minutes from the September board meeting.
