Hereford is looking to propose a $43.4 million bond election. Superintendent of Hereford ISD Kelli Moulten says this would focus on improvements to the schools.
"It's for renovation and construction at a wide variety of our sites, almost all of the sites will have something in the proposition that would improve or enhance the facilities," Moulten said.
It's not because they're growing either.
"What has happened is that we haven't had a bond proposition or haven't asked members of our community to participate in generating revenue since the mid 70's."
This would raise taxes by 19 cents for homeowners. For a $100,000 home, they would pay $1.23 a year.
APD's Chief Robert Taylor says former officer Saulo Bravo was not the only one disciplined since the internal investigation began. He explained he had become aware of an issue involving the conduct of Col. Perry Gilmore, Taylor's second in command.
"Col. Gilmore made comments to the investigator that could be construed as biased in favor of the now retired Ernest Douglass and prejudicial to the objectivity of the investigation," Chief Taylor said.
Sergeant Douglass was suspended for two days and transferred to the detective division for "failure to supervise". He has since retired. Three other officers have been suspended following the internal investigation.
"I am not proud of the conduct of these officers and of how they initially conducted themselves at the home on Arapahoe. I am also not proud in the manner in which the internal and criminal investigations became improperly comingled."
Chief Taylor has appointed a legal and police personnel committee to assist in the internal review.
