The Jenks Chamber of Commerce board of directors has endorsed passage of Jenks Public Schools’ Feb. 11 bond issues.
The two bonds, totaling $12.487 million, are not projected to increase property taxes.
“It’s always a great decision to invest in the future of our students and in Jenks,” said Heather Turner, chair of the Chamber’s board of directors. “Our great school system is one of our community’s greatest competitive advantages in attracting residents and quality businesses.”
Voters will have two items on the ballot addressing district-wide equipment, facilities management equipment and repairs, printing improvements, technology, textbooks and media, and transportation.
Additionally, the bonds will address classroom and instructional space in addition to Freshmen Academy classroom renovations and upgrades.
“Jenks Public Schools is an invaluable partner in growing a stronger Jenks,” said Chamber president Josh Driskell. “A ‘yes’ vote is a vote to continue investing in Jenks, in the future and our economy.”
Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Feb. 11. Early voting will take place at the Tulsa County Election Board on Feb. 6 and 7 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
