Board applies for $90K grant
Award to help buy 3 new buses
By Robyn Wheeler
Monitor Staff Writer

MABANK–The Mabank ISD Board of Trustees met March 23 to discuss and vote on several major proposals.
The board unanimously voted to renew the financial advisory agreement with Southwest Securities to save $3.5 M. The bond will be executed in May and authorizes the issuance of unlimited tax refunding bonds and the execution of a bond purchase contract and an escrow agreement.
Members also unanimously voted for the North Central Texas Council of Governments Clean School Bus Grant Application. The $90,000 bus grant would fund 50 percent of the purchase of three new buses for 2012-13. Mabank ISD has not purchased new buses in more than three years. Five of the current buses have been refurbished or repowered. The cost to repower one bus is about $12,000.
In other business, board members heard:
• the first day of STAAR testing was March 23, and no problems were incurred.
• The May board meeting has been moved from Monday, May 28 to Tuesday, May 22 due to the Memorial Day holiday weekend.
