FALLS CITY -- In the wake of voters’ approval May 10 of a $39.5 million bond package that will fund construction of new facilities, the board of trustees for the Falls City Independent School District (ISD) received more good news.

During the board’s May 21 meeting, Superintendent Tylor Chaplin reported that preliminary data reveals that the tax roll has increased for another year. The total taxable value for land within the Falls City ISD -- which straddles the Wilson and Karnes county lines -- is slightly less than $982 million. This was mostly due to values in the Karnes County portion of the district, which are anticipated to rise from approximately $737 million to just under $958 million.

However, in the Wilson County portion of the district, values are expected to fall to approximately $23.7 million.

With the increased values likely will come higher tax revenues, which Chaplin said could mean a quicker payoff of the bond. Instead of 25 years, he said the term could decrease to 15 years and the property-tax rate might even decrease to a point lower than previously thought.

The proceeds of the bond will finance construction of a new kindergarten through 12th-grade facility, athletic fields, and more. Voters gave the project the green light during the May 10 election when -- according to the official canvass -- they voted 397 for, 184 against.

Also during the election, voters re-elected board members Jerry Jendrusch, Marlon Moczygemba, and Alfie Kowalik, who were sworn in during the meeting.

When the board reorganized, Patrick Jarzombek and Mindy Jendrusch once again were chosen as its president and secretary, respectively. Moczygemba was chosen as the board’s vice president.

In other business, the board voted to:

•Continue its auditing services agreement with Cameron Gulley

•Enter into a shared- services arrangement with Education Service Center, Region 20 Day School Program for the Deaf. Fees are paid based on services used.

Also in attendance: Board members Raymond Dziuk and Eddie Bordovsky, and Superintendent’s Secretary Teri Crawford.
