Eltife, Seeber announce support for TISD bond

They've studied the plan, and they like what they hear.

Today, Senator Kevin Eltife and former Tyler mayor Joey Seeber announced their support for the proposed $124 million bond to improve Tyler ISD schools.

The bond is the second phase of the district's master plan, and includes new campuses for 5 elementary schools and the St. Louis School.

Now, if the bond passes in November, it is expected to result in about a $140 property tax increase for every $100,000 your home is worth.

However, that increase would not go into effect until 2010.
