DALLAS - Oklahoma County voters will decide in May on $55 million of general obligation bonds so the county can purchase an abandoned General Motors assembly plant and lease it to the U.S. Air Force for a maintenance facility.

Commissioners in the county, which includes Oklahoma City, set the election at a meeting yesterday. The $84.6 million bond package will also include $10.5 million for renovations to the county courthouse, $7.3 million to replace a county extension building on the Oklahoma City campus of Oklahoma State University, $6 million for flood relief, and $5.8 million to build a governmental records retention center.
