FORSAN â€” Construction projects approved by Forsan Independent School District voters Saturday should begin before the end of the year, school officials say.
By a margin of more than three to one Saturday, Forsan Independent School District voters approved a $23.8 million construction bond to finance a new elementary campus and extensive renovations elsewhere in the district.
FISD Superintendent Randy Johnson said he always believed the bond was in the best interests of the district, but conceded he was surprised by the margin of victory at the polls.
Big Spring Independent School District trustees will consider selling the mineral rights to a small patch of district property when they hold their monthly meeting at 5:15 p.m. Thursday in the high school board room.
The property in question is a 5.5 acre tract of land near the BSISD bus barn on the 11th Place extension, said Debbie Green, district business manager.
Green said a firm has submitted a bid to purchase 50 percent of the mineral rights to the property. BSISD will retain all surface rights to the land, she added.
