The Troup ISD Tax Ratification Election (TRE) to raise the tax rate to $1.22 has passed. The election was held Saturday, Aug. 26, and narrowly approved 138 to 121.
“We feel very blessed that it passed,” Superintendent Stuart Bird said. “We are grateful our taxpayers see the benefit for the community and school. We are so glad to be off that ASATR cliff.”
TISD board members will meet at noon Wednesday, Sept. 6, to canvass the vote.
