Residents to decide on AISD tax increase Saturday

The vote to determine whether or not the Argyle School District receives a proposed tax increase from town residents will be decided this Saturday, Sept. 15.

The tax rate would go up by 2 cents per $100 in property valuation, resulting in an average increase to homeowners of just over $71 annually.

According to district officials, along with revenues gained from its limited open enrollment program, the tax hike would generate roughly $548,000 for the school district.

Without the funding from this vote, Argyle ISD will face a $516,000 deficit this school year and will be forced to consider significant cuts to programs and services, school officials said. Read more here.

Early voting for the tax will run from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday, Sept. 10-11. 

On Saturday, voting will run from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

All voting will take place at the AISD Administration Building located at 800 Eagle Drive.
