Petrolia CISD voters approve tax rate; Johnson retains HISD trustee seat

1

Five years after Petrolia ISD first put forth a proposition to increase property taxes in an effort to raise revenues, voters of the now consolidated district have complied.

In Saturday’s municipal and school elections, 56 percent of PCISD voters cast ballots in favor of the tax rate increase, raising the total tax rate to $1.29 per $100 value.

The increase will be reflected in the district’s maintenance and operations rate, which will rise from $1.04 per $100 value to $1.17. PCISD will lower the interest and sinking rates — revenue used to pay off a school construction bond — from 25 cents per $100 to 23 cents. Theresa Harrison, business manager for Petrolia schools, said that even with the decrease in the I&S rate, the district will be able to collect enough revenue to cover its bonded indebtedness.

PCISD will have two new trustees. Ricky Elledge defeated incumbent Joe Young for Place 5, while Becky Mathews was unopposed for Place 6. Mathews will fill the seat for one year after replacing Aaron Daniels of Byers. Daniels was appointed to the seat following the consolidation of the Byers and Petrolia school districts last year.

Henrietta ISD’s board of trustees will look the same as last year as votes where cast in favor of incumbent Billy Johnson for Place 2. Johnson garnered 64 percent of the vote over challenger Monte Marchman.

Henrietta residents overwhelmingly supported reauthorization of the street maintenance sales tax with 93 percent voting in favor.

No other races on the Henrietta city or school ballots were contested.
