Group proposes $85 million school bond election

An $85 million bond proposal is expected to go before Granbury school district voters Nov. 5. The school board appears supportive of a bond steering committee’s proposal of secured entrances at all campuses, classroom technology upgrades and a major renovation of the high school that includes adding a ninth-grade wing. Taxpayers with a $118,524 home (the average home value in GISD) would pay an extra $178 per year. Annual taxes on a $300,000 home would increase $450.
