Midwest City Beacon

The Mid-Del School District is asking voters to approve a $492.5 million bond proposal on Oct. 10.

The record bond proposal includes a variety of projects aimed at improving safety and security, school facilities, fine arts, and athletics.

The bond proposal is divided into three separate propositions. The largest proposition includes $472,500,000 of construction projects and equipment purchases for academics, athletics, fine arts and security. Proposition 2 includes $10 million for an indoor aquatic center in partnership with the YMCA. Proposition 3 includes $10,200,000 for transportation.

Voters will decide on the three propositions separately. Each proposal must receive at least 60% of the of the vote to pass.

The nearly 20-year bond issue is projected to increase property taxes by $2.75 per month for a house valued at $150,000.

The Beacon has highlighted different projects over the past several weeks.
