As construction on the new football stadium and athletic facilities continues towards a late summer completion, the San Marcos CISD Board of Trustees approved spending an additional $850,000 for scoreboards and equipment.
While the money will initially come out of the Fund Balance, the plan is to repay that money over a seven year period from sponsorship advertising on the scoreboards.
