— Residents of Del City will cast votes Tuesday on bond packages for public safety and flood control.

Voters will consider two bond proposals, each for $3 million. If both are approved, property taxes will not increase because the bonds would replace a bond issue from 1992 that expires this year.

One $3 million bond proposal would replace aging vehicles at the fire department and pay for improvements to the city's early warning system for tornadoes and other emergencies.

Del City's fire department has 14 vehicles. If the bond is approved, the city plans to buy five new vehicles for an estimated $2.7 million. The remaining money would be used to acquire and install a new outdoor warning system.

The city's other $3 million bond proposal would go toward fixing drainage problems in several areas, including Judy Drive, Howard Drive and Leslie Drive. Lariet Lane from SE 29 to Del Road also would be fixed, officials said.
