Bond Election In Stinnett
STINNETT -- Residents will be voting on improvements to the Plemons-Stinnett-Phillips Consolidated Independent School District.
The plan is for two separate bonds.
The first will provide for some extra basic needs of the school, like better lights and adding air conditioning to the auditorium along with renovations to school facilities.
The district is also hoping that it will be able to take care of the cost which is $2.3 million, or $0.05 on the tax rate.
In the finance system the school uses, the maintenance and operating costs may be lowered enough to take care of it.
The second bond is more extensive but will make the most impact on the school district and effect mainly the athletic facilities.
Proposal 2 will move the baseball field closer to the field house where the players get ready before games along with improving the auditorium.
The good news is Stinnett is in a great financial position after having paid off the last school bond in May of last year.
The second proposition will also build a new sports complex and cost $30 million or a $55 tax increase on $50,000 homes.
For those around $100,000, the increase will be a $144.
