Area school bonds pass; Duncan street plan rejected

Posted: Updated:

Undated_Voters in two area school districts have approved property tax hikes to pay for construction projects and buses.  But in Duncan, they said no to higher taxes to fix their streets.

The city had hoped to raise $9 million to repair approximately 250 streets, but the proposal was rejected by a vote of 889-618.

 In Grandfield, voters approved two school bond proposals. The first will pay for repairs to the elementary school, and it was approved by a vote of 188-41. The other will pay for new school buses, and it was approved, 181-to-48.
In Caddo County, voters approved the continuation of a one-half cent sales tax that was implemented 20 years ago. The finally tally was 811-121, in favor.

Olustee school district voters also approved two questions. The first proposition would give the school $135,000 for building repairs. It passed, 48-7.

The second proposition would provide $165,000 to pay for buses. It passed 52-6.
