Marble Falls Independent School District voters will have one more thing to decide on the Nov. 6 general election ballot — a $55 million bond issue to make necessary improvements to campus facilities.

MFISD trustees voted unanimously at Monday night's regular meeting to call for the bond election after receiving a recommendation from a citizen-led committee last month.

“This bond issue would touch every campus in the district and we would be able to address these needs with bond funds without increasing our tax rate,” MFISD superintendent Dr. Chris Allen said. “In fact, we could reduce the tax rate and still be able to pass this bond. If reduced, this would be the second time the district has reduced the I&S (interest and sinking) tax rate in three years.
