Chamber board endorses school bond

The Jenks Chamber of Commerce’s Board of Directors voted at their last meeting to support the Feb. 14 Jenks Public Schools bond election.

The bonds are not projected to increase taxes. The Feb. 14 vote will include two bond issues totaling $10.4 million. Bond funds will be used to provide district-wide equipment, safety improvements, textbooks, technology, improvements to the middle school athletic fields and classrooms for secondary students.

Josh Driskell, president of the Jenks Chamber of Commerce, urged voters to support the measure.

“Jenks Public Schools are recognized among the best in the state and nation thanks to the continued support of the community,” he said. “These projects will continue to provide the excellent return on investment we’ve all come to expect.”

Polling places will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Feb. 14.
