Trustees of the Eanes Independent School District in western Travis County voted last week to ask voters to approve a $150 million general obligation bond package on Nov. 2.

The three-part proposal includes $72 million for building upgrades, new technology and buses; $57 million for a new elementary school and renovating ­existing schools; and $20.5 million for a new swimming center, student activity facilities and parking.

In January trustees had considered a May election on a $140.8 million bond proposal, but decided to delay the vote until later in the year.

The district’s $125 million of outstanding general obligation debt carries ­unenhanced credit ratings of AA-plus from Standard & Poor’s and AA from Fitch Ratings.

Eanes ISD includes a small portion of Austin and the towns of Westlake Hills and Rollingwood.
