Bond proposals on the May 9th ballot

By Katie Bauer  - bio | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A big bond issue is on the line for Lubbock Cooper ISD. If you live in the Cooper District, the bond proposal is estimated at $80 million.

Due to rapid growth, Cooper wants to add a second middle school and fourth elementary.

As well as a new football stadium, a softball and baseball complex.  Superintendent Pat Henderson says this vote is important for student's education.

"Anyone that lives in Lubbock area knows that Lubbock Cooper ISD is the fastest growing school district on the South Plains we have portable buildings still at North last school year we were using 47 of them you don't need to educate students in portable buildings, you need to educate them in classrooms and that's what this bond issue is all about. Eighty-six percent of this is about classrooms for kids and I think this community understands that and that's why I think they'll support us," said Henderson.

If this passes the tax increase would be $0.25 per one hundred dollars of value.  Other issues on the ballot today, a $16-million bond issue in Abernathy.

If you are a resident in Hockley County, a $15-million bond proposal is on the line.  That money would go towards a multipurpose center.
