Bond 2021: Prop D includes repairs and component replacements to campus and district athletics facilities, including Rhoads Stadium field house and concession areas roof repair (only stadium item), field lighting replacements, track re-surfacing, and other similar items.
 
Check out the Prop D FAQs here:
 
1. What are Building Component Replacements?
 
Building component replacements include Floors, Exterior Lighting, Interior Lighting, Chillers, Building Management Cooling Systems, Boilers, Roofs, Skylights, Windows, Fire Alarms, P/A Systems, Emergency Generators, Kitchen Equipment, Track Surfaces, Athletic Field Lighting and Gym Bleachers, to name a few.
 
2. Why must component replacements for athletic facilities be listed on a separate proposition?
 
Texas legislation requires school districts to have separate propositions for bonds that will fund construction or improvements for Technology, Natatoriums, Athletic Facilities and Performing Arts Facilities.
 
3. What types of item are considered athletic building component replacements?
 
Roofing Replacements, Track Re-surfacings, Field Lighting Replacements, and Gym Bleacher Replacements are considered to be athletic building component replacements. Roof replacements are critical to preventing water leakage and structural damage on Katy ISD campuses. Track surfaces are replaced when they have reached their life cycle. Gym bleachers are replaced when frames show significant wear and tear, and require extensive maintenance each year to remain operational. New bleachers would meet current code requirements, as well as incorporate Americans with Disabilities Act compliant seating.
 
4. What is the "stadium" reference in Proposition D?
 
The District's 40-year-old Rhodes Stadium field house and concession areas would receive roof repair as part of Prop D. The cost for the roof repair is $435,000. There are no other stadium related items included in Prop D. The other athletic facility component replacements in Prop D pertain to junior high and high school track and field repairs ($2,500,000), outdoor lighting replacements on campus baseball, softball and football fields and tennis courts ($6,665,000), and school gym bleacher replacements ($1,660,000). An itemized list of Prop D projects can be found here www.katyisd.org/site s/bonds/Documents/Pr op_D-Campus_and_Dist rict_Athletic_F

A couple of concerns about the card sent out. First it implies to those who might not know better that the Propositions provide protection from tax increases for seniors, when in fact Over 65 are already exempt from increases on their homestead, not including improvements since frozen. Next, "No change in the tax rate" refers to the I&S portion only--$0.39. The total KISD tax rate is $1.39 (OK $1.3888) is still the highest in the area except for Waller--the other district with a new super deluxe football stadium.
 
BTW, see my separate tip if you're well over 65 and recently moved here.
