The largest bond issue in Muskogee Public Schools’ history was approved yesterday by Muskogee voters with 68 percent approving.
$39 million of the total will be invested in secondary schools and a $24 million in elementary schools.
In addition to those investments, $12 million will build a new football stadium and $20 million will build a field house.
The bond issue calls for increasing the millage rate to 32 from 20. This means a resident who owns a home valued at $100,000 would pay an additional $119.30 per year in property taxes.
