The Dublin ISD board of trustees held its August meeting Monday, where they approved a tax rate increase, the building of a new track, and discussed accountability ratings, current and upcoming construction projects, and adopted the 2017-2018 budget. This year’s tax rate represents a nine cent increase from last year. The board also voted to begin building a new eight lane track, as Dublin will host this year’s 6-3A district track meet for the first time in their history. The track will be paid for with a one million dollar time-warrant bond. The payment plan extends over three years, but they plan to pay it off in two years.
