I made a gross error and printed the wrong figure in the 3/3/11 article regarding the Spur ISD bond proposal. I wanted to get the word out asap, so I am posting it here and on our Facebook page.
A figure used in the 3/3/11 article about the Spur ISD bond proposal was grossly incorrect. The construction costs for the gymnasium and the auditorium would be $4 million, not $414,401,607 as printed in the March 3 article. The latter figure is the 2011 valuation on property in the school district.
The Texas Spur apologizes for the misinformation.
