Writer New Braunfels Independent School District voters could be going to the polls in December to decide a million dollar bond package that includes one new elementary and ren ovation to almost all other NBISD campuses Trustees will meet in two weeks to decide if they want to call for the elec tion either Dec 3 or 10 NBISD Superintendent Charles Bradberry told the board that the improvements would put the district in good shape through the year 2000 Board to decide whether to call election in two weeks when district enrollment projections are expected to level off Bradberry said a 05 cent increase on the tax rate would cover about million of the package through restruc tering the debt That part of the package includes a new elementary across from Memori al and renovations at Seele Carl Schurz Lone Star New Braunfels Middle and New Braunfels High School The district presented an additional list of projects that would have brought the total to million if the board had decided to use them all It would be about 1921 million if all the things were done in the school district I dont think you can do all of said Bradberry who said addi tional projects would have raised the tax rate about 15 cents The board chose four additional pro jects including a new high school library renovating the existing library to science labs putting air conditioning in the middle school gym and adding to the maintenance warehouse at about million Bradberry said these projects would be funded after the initial primary pro jects were completed if bond sales allowed the district to stay under the 05 cent raise Growth projections indicate the dis trict should be able to fund these through additional property values A nickel or increase will cer tainly make it easier to deal with than a 15 cent tax he said going to get exactly what they want But we have to have trust and credibility Twentyone million is not going to provide Left off the list was a new gymnasi um at the high school new building trades center and renovation of the existing shop building All the renovation work at various campuses would also bring the district up to American Disability Act guidet lines and solve the removal of asbestos from some schools Assistant Superintendent Lonnie Curtis said the federal government requires schools to follow ADA guide lines but does not provide the funding to meet those guidelines in the case of construction moderate 520 high light 13 high light 26 Boozefighters give aid to Womens Center From staff reports Boozefighters who are they In 1946 a group of young guys in
