Temple School District Residents:

On February 12, 2019, you will have an opportunity to vote for a bond to renovate the Jr High/Sr High School Building. As many of you know , the school building is 95 years old! Other than a roof or routine maintenance, this building has not seen a bond to do any renovation in at least the last 60 years, most likely never. We have one of the oldest school building in the state.

To keep the proper balance between a safe, comfortable environment where students can learn and teachers can teach and responsible use of local tax payer dollars, we have decided on a $995,000 renovation project. If this passes, it will only increase your current property taxes by 3.2%. That means if you pay $1,000 in property taxes, you will only see and increase of $32.00 assuming all other factors stay the same with valuations and property in the school district.

Community Members Join Forces For Change

Two years ago a group of people came together with the hope of making a big impact in Walters. They wanted to see the pride and beauty of our small town brought back to what it once was. After a lot of discussion and ideas on how to implement them, the Walters Beautification Project was created. Headed by Kody Mc-Dowell, several projects came to life. The volunteers have painted, repaired, trimmed trees, mowed, raked and continue to do whatever they can to make Walters beautiful again. Some of the areas focused on so far have been Kidtopia, Sultan Park, and Broadway.
