Edmond school district voters to decide $80M bond issue
The board will bring before voters an $80 million bond issue to be decided in February
Among the reasons the district listed for the $80 million bond issue is to keep up with expansion in the 22,500-student district, which grew by about 2,200 students in the past four years.
The bond money would also expand facilities to accommodate growth, maintain and upgrade existing facilities and support academic and co-curricular programs.
Since no bonds were issued in 2012, Underwood said, she wants to stress to residents that their property taxes will not increase.
“We just want to make sure people understand that because when you look at the amount it looks like a lot,” she said. “Since we didn't have a bond in 2012, it will not increase property taxes.”
