The Board of Trustees held a special meeting on July 26, 2010, at 6:00 p.m. in the Board Room in the cafetorium. The Richland Springs Board of Trustees met with Victor Quiroga of Southwest Securities in order to update them on the process for a possible bond proposal for the district. The meeting was an information gathering process. Four years ago, a previous Facilities Committee toured the school facilities and did an in depth analysis of facility needs and presented their findings to the Board of Trustees. The present Board of Trustees is again reviewing the district’s facility needs, and gathering more information in order to begin the process of analyzing and prioritizing their findings.
