data may mean tax rollback election By DEBBIE DaLOACH Staff writer Comal Independent School District trustees reviewed a budget proposal for the 196384 school year Tuesday and werent real happy with what they The 198384 estimated budget of carried an overall increase from last years budget of Last the district had over million in carryover to help balance out increasing This CISD could face a rollback A rollback works like CISD Business Manager Hugo Nowotny We compute the effective tax rate for which is cents per If we go over 3 percent of last years effective tax we have to have a If we go 8 percent or that triggers the possibility of a rollback election but only if 10 percent of the qualified voters in the district sign As a CISD could face such an election if the tax rate for 198384 exceeds The lowest tax rate presented Tuesday was 77 and that would mean the board would have to decide not to grant a 40 percent homestead which it can do under a law passed by the 1981

have to call an even if it goes over 8 But if the rollback weve got Nowotny The rollback would not affect the 198384 school But in 1984 wed have to revert back to the 198283 effective tax Thats what a lot of people dont com We dont renege on the 198384 school That stays the But for 198485 wed have to go back to Basic mathematics makes the picture a little in we collected roughly million in In we need so we have a rollback and it Nowotny In even if we need all we can have is CISD is not Edgar Willhelm At least 400 school districts in Texas are subject to rollback this And if the rollback trap is that could mean cutbacks in extracurricular ac and even quality We couldnt get under the cents per valuation to stay under even if we adopted the same budget we had last Willhelm Nowotny told the trustees that he anticipated having to borrow money to meet the and maybe even the It depends on when the tax bills go I hope Im but See Page 1M NBISD on the move New superintendent pledges fewer
