Aldine plans tax increase, sets hearing

The Aldine ISD has set a meeting for Tuesday night, June 14 to discuss the proposed budget and a possible tax increase.

The meeting will start at 7:00 pm in the Aldine ISD Board Room, at the new administration building at 2520 W. W. Thorne Blvd. near Nimitz High School.

The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the school district’s budget that will determine the tax rate that will be adopted.

Last year, the school district had a budget of $665,660,880 in the General Operating Fund, a 1% increase over the previous year. They also had a Debt Service Budget of $40 million. A tax increase overall of 2.48% is proposed, to meet the fiscal needs including a larger budget.

This increase would amount to $106.01 additional tax for an average residence in the district.
