Brady ISD bonding capacity and impact of wind mill farms presented by Live Oak Public Finance. A question was asked if the extra income from the wind mill farms can be used to pay off current bond debt early. It was explained that because of the requirements of the current bonds they cannot be paid off early.

COMMUNITY INPUT

First Question: How could the 2007 bond funds have been better invested?

  • Brady ISD spent too much money on the high school and did not have enough left over to follow through on other commitments. It took pressure to get the district to follow through on demolition of old high school.
  • The fire suppression water tank for the high school was very costly.
  • Do not want to see anything else abandoned and left unmaintained.
