    Think the City of Hutto can Pay the ISD for the shortfall since the City locked the ISD into paying all that money for the College. Really should have looked at the Future Economy Forecast instead of ramming the College down our throats! We… just voted to raise city taxes a few years back, We just voted to raise ISD taxes a few years back and rightfully so, and now we just voted to raise taxes again for the Higher Education Center with no near future returns on our investments. A lot of people say how high Taylor’s taxes are but they actually have things to show for it, Murphy Park, City Swimming Pool, State of the Art Baseball Park, Girl Scout House, and many more! I seriously support our ISD with all my heart but when the city gets involved the Gold will always turn into Fool’s Gold and it is sad because our children are the Gold! Thank you Mahlon and Jason Wirth for making people aware of what I already new! When the city sat down with me when I wanted to start a special needs sports league and needed a field to play on the City could not make up their mind nor help us and the ISD came through and let us play on their field! Now we are building a State of the Art Baseball Field catered to Special needs children in Taylor Thanks to the Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation and Best Buy Corporate!
