Some of you have followed the current Hutto Independent School District (HISD) revenue crisis here, here, and here. HISD called for an increased Maintenance and Operations tax rate, triggering a tax ratification election. A similar measure failed by a 10 point margin last year. This past Saturday, September 1st, was the official election date, following 2 weeks of early voting. The results are in, and Proposition 1 passed in a landslide, 854 (66.67%) voting ‘FOR’, 427 (33.33%) voting ‘AGAINST’.
