Bond Issues, General, Municipal Elections in the Panhandle

Two school districts in the Oklahoma Panhandle are asking voters to approve bond issues during April 2’s elections.

Balko Public Schools in Beaver County has a $4.7 million facilities bond before the voters. In Cimarron County, Felt Public Schools has a $210,000 transportation bond on the ballot

Residents will vote in the Board of Education General Election, Municipal Elections and special elections.

In Felt, the $210,000 will be used to purchase several new school buses, according to information from Superintendent Lewetta Hefley.

In Balko, the $4.7 million bond will be paid off over a six-year period, Superintendent Roger Mendell said in an email. He said district officials hope to use the funds to make a safer, more secure school environment.

“We are trying to pass a bond to build a new elementary school with Pre-K through sixth grade classrooms, bathrooms, a computer lab, and teacher work rooms,” Mendell said.

He added the bond will allow the pre-kindergarten and kindergarten classes to be FEMA approved safe-rooms that will accommodate the entire school population.

“By moving all the elementary classes into one building this will allow for better collaboration and networking between teachers,” Mendell said. “It will also allow us to move our first and second grades out of the basement into a safer environment.”
