Muldrow School Bond Issue On March Ballot

Voters in the Muldrow School District will be asked March 4 to approve a $4.35 million bond issue to build safe rooms at all three Muldrow Schools - elementary, middle school and high school.

If approved, the bond would add about $21 to $100 paid in property tax.  It would be paid over a 12 year period at an interest rate not to exceed 10 percent or lower.

School Superintendent Ron Flanagan said many parents have asked that the schools provide a safe haven for their students during bad weather.  "And of course the rooms would be open to the public during tornado weather," Flanagan said.

He said the rooms would be large enough for all the students and staff at each school.  Muldrow Schools have an enrollment of 1,560.

Early voting on the proposition will be held from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday and Friday at the Sequo- yah County Election Board at 110 E. Creek in Sallisaw.  Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. March 4.
