Early voting for the Frenship I.S.D. bond election gets underway Wednesday.
So Tuesday morning, a citizens' committee endorsed the $46.8 million issue, saying the cost to taxpayers is comparable to the price of a new pair of tennis shoes.
"For a $100,000 house, you can expect a $42 increase in your property taxes," said Eddie McBride, a Frenship parent. "For $150,00 as you can expect a $67 increase on your property taxes and for a $200,000 house you can expect up to a $92 a year increase on your property tax."
Enrollment within Frenship I.S.D. is expected to grow between 61% to 73% by 2012.
