Humble ISD finalizes budget

Posted by Texas Education on June 30, 2008

Humble Independent School District, after months of balance sheet wrangling, finalized its 2008-2009 budget with nearly $9 million in reductions and the request to voters for a 13-cent increase.

The cuts are coming in response to news at a May 27 budget workshop that the district was looking at a $26.42 million budget deficit for the ‘08-‘09 school year and $31.29 million short fall for ’09-’10 without a 13-cent tax increase, which would put the district at the state’s tax limit.

Dr. Sconzo said the tax election date will come when the district receives certified values from the Harris County Appraisal District. The appraisals could come as early as August, which would put the election some time in the fall.

I missed this blessed event. But, my friend RYAN HICKMAN at the Atascocita/Kingwood Observer covered it most nicely. Don’t think there are any real surprises here. And at least now we can move on, lick our wounds, buck up, get a thick skin, keep our chins up. Yeah, yeah, I know enough already…
