Voters okay tax change


A total of 309 voters turned out for what was called the TRE election and approve a one-cent tax reduction for the Raymondville ISD by a margin of 275 for and 29 against.

The proposal allows the school to reallocate the tax structure which in turn would provide for more state funding and enable to the school to reduce taxes by one-cent.

The school board will be meeting to canvas the election.

Early voting in the election ended last Tuesday with the election held Saturday.
