AUSTIN (KXAN) — Voters in Round Rock, Manor, Pflugerville, and several other districts approved taking on more debt for major projects this past weekend. Only the school bond in Eanes ISD failed.

Two former Eanes ISD board presidents led the opposition.

Voters turned down the $89.5 million bond for a new elementary school as well as some traffic control projects.

“Eanes ISD is spending more money than it takes in,” Al Cowan said, “and as such should not be borrowing money to build new facilities to make matters worse.”

District officials like superintendent Nola Wellman said they will move forward.

“These issues are not just going to go away,” she said in a statement. “One way or another we will make sure we provide the best opportunities and learning environment for our students.”
