Enid parks propositions fall flat

Sales tax and bond issue propositions failed in Enid during statewide municipal elections Tuesday. Most bond issues elsewhere in the area — including at Rose State College — were supported.

A sales tax proposal in Newkirk that would have supported capital expenditures also failed, but proposals elsewhere in the area fared much better.

School bond issues in Cushing, Verden, Kremlin-Hillsdale were all supported, as was $22 million in upgrades at Rose State College.

Revenue generated by the new Rose State bonds will finance an expansion and renovation project at the college's library, repair its swimming pool and upgrade technology campuswide.

The Rose State district includes the Midwest City-Del City School District and portions of the Choctaw and Oklahoma City school districts.

Also in Oklahoma County, two new members were elected to the city council in Nicoma Park.

The incumbent mayor of Nicoma Park, however, will face off against one of his two challengers in a runoff election, as will the top two vote-getters in both of the Oklahoma City Council races.

The runoff election is scheduled for April 2.
