Wind Farm

A lowered appraisal of a central Val Verde County wind farm reduced a local school board’s anticipated spending by about $600,000.

The local public school board was forced to shave off more than $600,000 from the district’s annual budget Monday after an appraisal of a Val Verde County wind farm was reduced.

The San Felipe Del Rio CISD Board of Trustees held a special called meeting to evaluate its budget for the 2018-2019 school year, after the Val Verde County Appraisal District’s appraisal review board lowered the appraisal of a wind farm in central Val Verde County.

Since this happened because of a decision made by the Appraisal District Review Board, it would be pertinent to know who are the members of the board and how were they appointed.


Very good question. Surprised DRNH didn't think to ask. Here's the link to Val Verde Appraisal District which lists members of Appraisal Review Board:


Is the information correct about cutting att positions? Dr. Rios has made it clear that has not been decided.
