- Who is eligible to vote? Who will be paying? Do apartment complexes pay?

The eligible voters are the residents of Bonding District 34, which is essentially the attendance zone of Barbe High School.  Maps are available on the CPSB website under “school zones”.  The taxes would be levied on the assessed value of all residential property (after homestead exemption) and all commercial and industrial property including inventories.  This includes the new apartment complexes being built all over the area.  Businesses and industries pay at a higher rate than residences and they pay on much higher assessed values.  (see documentation link #2 on top tax-payers)
