County Attorney says November BISD election would violate law
BEAUMONT - KFDM News has obtained a letter County Attorney Tom Rugg wrote to County Clerk Carolyn Guidry, advising her a November 2013 BISD election would violate the law.
The board Thursday night approved moving forward with an election while acknowledging the matter is still tied up in the courts.
Rugg says a joint election between BISD and the county can only take place in even numbered years when the county holds such elections.
Rugg also advised that the BISD board waited too late to change the election date from May to November. He said that had to have been done by December 31, 2012.
