OHS Building Committee comes to a consensus on calling for a bond

A consensus of calling for a bond for a new high school was met during the OHS Building Committee Monday night. The amount of $40 million would renovated the existing OHS Auditorium, build a new academic building between the OHS Main and Heritage Building, renovate or rebuild the OHS Main Building and renovate or add to other existing buildings at OHS.

The bond would also be for a girls’ field house, due to a Title IX issue the school district is facing, as well as transportation, maintenance and technology so the district doesn’t have to ask the taxpayers for another small bond for those items.

All of the information will be presented to the CCCCSD School Board at a special meeting Monday, Aug. 12. The board is planning on making a decision whether or not to call for a bond election at Monday’s meeting.

Hurd’s unexpected retirement immediately sent shockwaves through the Republican Party — and elicited confidence from Democrats eager to win his sprawling district that stretches from just outside El Paso to San Antonio, including Crockett County, and a large portion of the Texas-Mexico border.

Hurd is the fourth Republican Texas congressman to announce their retirement in recent days. U.S. Rep. Mike Conaway, R-Midland, announced is expected to send 46-48 percent of the $15-$16 million M&O budget to the state this year.
