NBISD officials sign bond documents
By CRAIG HAMMETT
New Braunfels Independent School District officials signed and notorized official documents Tuesday night for the $15 million bond package approved by voters Saturday.
NBISD board members earlier officially canvassed votes fiom the election, which showed » 2 to I voter approval of the bond package. A total of 1,275 were cast in the election.
Duane Westerman of Southwest Securities, an investment company handling bond sales for the district, said
the honda would have to be approved by the state. He predicted about February or March before the process would be completed.
“The biggest thing is when they (NBISD) need the money,” said Westerman.
Very soon, according to school officials, who vould like to begin work, especially on roof! * several campuses before the end of the school year.
Selling bonds quickly is also important due to rising interest rates. Rates on short term investments has risen six times this year, about one and three-quarter points ainee Januaiy, said West
erman. Long-term investments are also affected by these rises.
“The past year and a half has been a good time for investors,” he said.
Generally, those selling bonds prefer to sell at lower rates to avoid paying high interest. While interest rates are predicted to rise, it is impossible to be certain.
Southwest Securities also handles bond sales for the Comal Independent School District which recently sold roughly half of their bond package approved earlier in this summer. Westerman said they expected to sell the remainder this spring.
