FBSun: FBISD to hold next board meeting on Tuesday, August 25

From staff reports

The Fort Bend ISD Board of Trustees announced it will hold its next regular board meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 25, in the boardroom of the FBISD Administration Building, located at 16431 Lexington Blvd. in Sugar Land.

Meetings are typically held on Mondays, but board trustees agreed to reschedule the Aug. 24 Monday meeting to Tuesday, in response to other district commitments.

The meeting is slated to begin at 6 p.m. in the board room with a closed session, followed by the public session at approximately 7 p.m.

Comment: This is the meeting that the "rubber stamp" BOT will vote to increase our tax rate once again.
