Commerce school board asked to consider bond election

Commerce, TX – The Commerce school board is thinking about holding a bond election to replace the 26 year old building housing third through fifth graders.

During Monday night's CISD Board of Trustees meeting, Superintendent Keith Boles brought back consultants who updated the board about the tradeoffs of renovation versus replacement. The consultants recommended a new building not only to meet educational needs but also to take advantage of increased state financing.

C-I-S-D trustees will hear more during a budget workshop on March 5th. The board has until March 12th to add a bond issue to the May election ballot.

Speaking of the upcoming election, trustees Bob McLeroy, Donna Tavener, and Russell Armstrong have all filed for re-election.
