Deer Creek voters to vote on $5 million bond issue


The Edmond Sun

EDMOND — Deer Creek School District voters will go to the polls today to vote on a special bond election to issue bonds in the sum of $5 million.

The bond issue will provide funds for completing projects started with the October 2009 passage of Bond Package 39 for $142.1 million.

The $5 million will be used for the purpose of constructing, equipping, repairing and remodeling school buildings, acquiring school furniture, fixtures and equipment and acquiring and improving school sites.

The majority of the $5 million will go toward purchasing equipment and furnishings for the new buildings that are still under construction, said Superintendent Ranet Tippins, “and will not raise the voters’ taxes.”

“Those buildings include Spring Creek Elementary, or elementary No. 5, the Freshman Academy including a new cafeteria, high school addition including a new cafeteria, and the Performing Arts and Athletic Center,” Tippins said.

Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. today. The Oklahoma County Election Board may be reached at 713-1515 or the Logan County Election Board may be reached at 282-1900.

Voters who do not know their polling location may find it online at www.elections.ok.gov in the “Frequently Asked Questions” section of the State Election Board’s website.
