Two Carter County school bond issues pass

By  | 

ARDMORE, Okla. (KXII) -- New equipment and renovations are on the way for two Carter County school districts after voters passed school bond measures on Tuesday.

More than 80 percent of voters in the Healdton public school district passed a nearly $1.5 million bond.

It will pay for campus renovations, and the construction of new additions like a multipurpose building as well as vehicles for transportation.

And in Fox, voters approved a $350,000 bond to purchase a Suburban and buses.

"This community is a great community and they want to support everything that goes on and they know there is a need for it," Fox Superintendent Brent Phelps said. "And with us we are a rural community so therefore we are busing 90 percent of our kids and they know the need for it."

Both superintendents tell us there is no projected tax increase with the passing of the bonds.
