At their regular monthly meeting held on Wednesday, July 11, the Burnet CISD Board of Trustees approved the order of a Tax Ratification Election for Saturday, Aug. 25, which, if approved, will lower BCISD's tax rate from $1.28 to $1.26 and provide the district with additional operating revenue that will be used for the better of BCISD.

The Board held a public meeting open to the community prior to the meeting, though no comments were received from the public.

“Burnet CISD is in the middle of a critical transition financially,” said director of business and finance Clay Goehring. “Beginning the next school year, the district will begin making recapture payments to the state. This is a major change for the district.”
