The local paper did the math..

January 19, 2022 05:16PM
and had it pegged at a little over a million dollars to actually change the name, branding, uniforms, etc... So, they are building two new high schools that will be ready in 2024.. each building is already $20 million over budget.. to the point where they are going to use existing furniture (from current schools) when NEW furniture was promised, outdoor eating facilities will no longer be covered - unacceptable in Texas with the heat and surprising cold weather, and a bunch of other "extras" the people were promised, if they passed the bond..

Also, in the bond, it never stipulated that the existing high school names would NOT be used.. that bond would NEVER have passed had that been known - not in this small community that LIVES for the Coyotes..

So, they could save $1 million per building by keeping the existing names etc.. which is a big deal considering they're $40 million in the hole.. the majority of the town wants it, a very vocal few want new everything.. so far the vocal few are getting what they want - sound sorta familiar? Seems to be the way of the country, lately... We'll see what happens from here.. we're still pushing forward - that's all we can do..
