To the people of Richland Springs School District:
The Richland Springs School Board says the Richland Springs ISD needs money to upgrade the school but they have not said how they are going to upgrade the school and have not provided any information. I think the school should provide the citizens the same information that it takes anyone to borrow money from the following lenders.
If you borrow money from the State of Texas, you need plans drawn up by an engineer with itemized estimated cost lists.
If you borrow money from the bank to build a house or a barn, you need architectural plans and itemized estimated cost lists.
If the Richland Springs ISD wants money from the citizens of the Richland Springs ISD, the Richland Springs ISD needs to provide a set of architectural/engineering plans with itemized estimated costs. The plans need to have been voted on and accepted into the minutes by the Richland Springs School Board as the plans that will be built.
If plans that have been voted on and accepted by the Richland Springs School Board can not be provided then the Richland Springs ISD does not need any bond money.
Any architect can make a drawn rendition of how a building will look on the outside but until plans and estimated costs have been voted on and put into the minutes, there are no guarantees that this is what will be built.
