For the last few months, Lakeway resident, taxpayer, and voter Susan Harbin has been applying her thirty years of Project, Program and Portfolio Management skills to the upcoming LTISD Bond Proposal. Her prior experience in (1) developing project estimates for corporate capital project approvals; and (2) providing customer Steering Committees and CFO’s with project financial estimates, updates and risk assessments provides her with a unique perspective for LTISD financial management processes and reporting. She publicly called for an increase in due diligence, transparency and accountability in LTISD Administrative processes, and has been voicing and posting thought-provoking questions about what the Long-Range Planning Committee recommended.
We’ve invited her to share her findings and perspectives; and answer your questions with facts and experience as we contemplate propelling our school district debt to the Billion Dollar Mark. Please join us on August 9th at River in the Hills Church as we prepare for the next LTISD board meeting.
The LTISD Board of Trustees plans to vote on the proposed $703 million dollar property tax increase at the August 17, 2022 meeting. This amount is almost triple the last bond passed in 2017.
We require the following BEFORE we can endorse a property tax increase:
2. Fiscal responsibility NOT fiscal capacity.
3. A Return on education for each line item.
4. A Cost/benefit analysis on each line item.
Please Inform yourself about this property tax increase. Email the Board at email@example.com and/or show up at the August 17th Board meeting to voice your questions and concerns. Please pass this information on to your contact list.
