Bryan Independent School District employees will face higher health-care costs, while taxpayers could get a break.
Trustees approved changes Monday to the district's health-care program.
Among the changes made are higher premiums for employees, ranging from $5 for employees only, to a $54 increase for an employee and their entire family.
In the middle, premiums for plans covering the employee and their spouse will increase $36. A plan covering the employee and their children will increase $20.
Under the plan, the BISD contribution for each employee health-care plan is going up $25.
Bryan taxpayers, meanwhile, could see lower tax bills in 2007-2008.
Trustees are considering a $0.34 reduction in the district's tax rate.
The current tax rate is $1.63 per $100 of assessed value.
The tax rate under consideration calls for a $0.01 reduction in debt service and a $0.33 cut in maintenance and operations. That would reduce the Bryan ISD tax rate to $1.29
The final rate will not be set until after a public hearing August 27th.
