Voters in the Tulsa suburb of Broken Arrow approved all four general obligation bond proposals at last week’s election, with every measure garnering at least 68% of the ballots cast.
The $44.4 million of bonds include $27 million for street projects, $10 million for public safety efforts including a new fire station, $5.1 million for parks, and $2.3 million for storm water drainage projects.
“We put together this package based on residents input and are thrilled the voters approved,” said Mayor Mike Lester. He said the maturation of existing debt will result in no tax hike to support the new debt.
Voters in nearby Bixby approved $10 million of bonds for streets, parks, and public safety improvements.
