A loyal reader sent this to our attention:
EPISD previously created a public facility corporation under Texas law.
They did this to pay for the new central office facilities.
The way it works is that the public facility corporation can authorize and sell bonds without voter approval. They simply place notices in the local newspaper (how many people subscribe to the newspaper, and of those who do how many ever even look at the classifieds?). If a voter petition that objects to the issuance does not get filed within 60 days they can issue the bonds. The petition must bear the signature of 5 percent of the registered voters in the district.
After all you didn’t complain did you?
From there the public facility corporation builds the building and leases it to the school district.
We deserve better
