CEMENT, OK (KSWO) –Voters in the Cement public school district went to the polls to decide on a transportation bond issue.
The bond, for $300,000, would go towards the district's transportation needs. The district says their current fleet of vehicles includes three school buses from 2004, an AG truck with more than 220,000 miles, a driver's education car, an SUV and a van. The vehicles have at least 112,000 miles each and the district spent at least $28,000 in maintenance in 2015 alone.
Voters passed the bond with an overwhelming majority. The vote was 86-17.
Property owners can expect to see a slight increase in their property tax to repay the bond.
