January 31, 2011

Public school educators in Howard County are bracing for a chilly spring, financially speaking.

City looks to save some cash

January 29, 2011

Big Spring City Council this week acted on a measure that might help take a small bite out of the city's bond debt, a move that could save taxpayers between $5,000 and $25,000 a year.

The council met with Lubbock-based First Southwest representative Eric Macha regarding general obligation bonds that were issued in 2002. According to Macha, the bonds — which if left on their current course will be paid off in 2014 — are eligible to be refinanced at a lower interest rate that could save the city thousands of dollars during the next three years.
