Richardson ISD to use federal funds to combat learning loss

BY WILLIAM C. WADSACK

As part of the new school year, Richardson ISD plans to tackle learning loss related to the pandemic with a sense of urgency and nearly $70million in fed- eral funds.

A funding agreement of more than $1.7 million for street improvements in The IQ was approved by Richardson City Council on Aug. 16. The money will pay for the construction of a shared-use path along East Arapaho Road, pedestrian lighting and bicycle lanes along Greenville Avenue, and pavement and signal improvements at the intersection of Greenville and Arapaho. The project’s design phase, which costs $600,000, is the only direct expense to Richardson, according to city documents.

The city used Transportation Devel- opment Credits, money awarded by the North Central Texas Council of Governments for air quality-related projects, to fund its contribution, according to city documents. The IQ is a 1,200-acre area east of Central Expressway that used to serve as the supply chain to the city’s Telecom Corridor but is now

the subject of an in-depth revitaliza- tion eort by the city. To help facil- itate the area’s growth, Richardson has several infrastructure projects planned. Funding would come from the upcoming city bond election as well as various grants, such as this one from the Transportation Alternatives Set-Aside program. Construction is set to begin in early 2023 and be complete by the end of that year.

City Council calls $190 million bond election

BREAKING DOWN THE BOND Voters will decide on five separate propositions totaling $190 million.

BY ERICK PIRAYESH

BY OLIVIA LUECKEMEYER

PLANO ISD Trustees passed a temporary mask mandate that allows for medical, religious, philosophical and administrative exemptions at an Aug. 23 emergency meeting. The mandate took effect Aug. 26 and lasts until Sept. 24. It covers all indoor district facilities as well as district-provided transpor- tation. Angela Powell was the only trustee to vote against the proposal. District officials said there will be no review process for exemptions. The vote comes after the Texas Supreme Court on Aug. 19 left in place a temporary restraining order issued by a Travis County court, which blocked Gov. Greg Abbott’s ban on mask mandates. The court denied Abbott’s motion for emer- gency relief from the temporary restraining order, filed Aug. 13, against executive order GA-38, which barred local governments from issuing mask mandates. The Texas Education Agency stated Aug. 19 it will not enforce the governor’s order “as the result of ongoing litigation.”

RICHARDSON Voters will be asked to approve $190 million worth of infrastructure improve- ments following unanimous City Council approval of a resolution calling for a Nov. 2 bond election. The bond package includes five propositions covering repair and maintenance projects related to streets, public buildings, sidewalks, drainage and parks. If approved, debt from the bond would be sold over a five-year period beginning in fiscal year 2021-22. Street projects make up the bulk of the package and include improvements to all streets graded “poor” during a recent citywide assessment. The $102 million proposition would also partially fund the reconstruction of Glenville Drive and McKin- ney Street, and cover almost $9 million in traffic signal improvements and replacements. Renovations at City Hall and the library—esti- mated at $36.1 million and $22.4 million, respec- tively—comprise most of the public buildings proposition. Magner said the bond package represents only a fraction of the city’s overall plans for infrastructure improvements over the

CITYHIGHLIGHTS RICHARDSON An independent investigation into allegations against the Police Department found it did not use a system of illegal ticket quotas, according to a July 22 report.

of about $5.4 million; however, city officials said they are budgeting sales tax conservatively due to the ongoing pandemic. A $0.01 reduction in the property tax rate to $0.61516 per $100 valuation translates to an additional $34 a year for the average homeowner. That increase would have been $62 had the city adopted last year’s rate of $0.62516 per $100 valuation. The move will cost the city $1.8 million in revenue year over year. “This is a very unique year in the context of our ability to make that penny reduction at a relatively painless revenue cost on the [opera- tions and maintenance] side,” Mayor Paul Voelker said at the Aug. 11 council meeting. “I’d like to think we can offer an average tax rate with superior ser- vices, and I think we have a tradition of doing that.” Residents and commercial busi- nesses will see a 2.5% increase in the city’s water and sewer rate. City Manager Dan Johnson said this is necessary to support system upgrades and improvements. Other facets of the budget include
