LAWTON, Okla. (AP) - Voters will decide a $29 million bond issue to finance repair and renovation projects at Lawton Public Schools.

Superintendent Tom Deighan says he hopes voters share his vision for a proactive school district with better technology, properly maintained facilities and newer buses.

The Lawton Constitution reports (https://bit.ly/1e1YRNl ) that voters approved a $29 million bond issue in 2004, which the district has used to replace roofs, heating and air conditioning units, build parking lots and new classrooms and pay for other projects. On Tuesday, voters will decide whether to approve another $29 million bond issue for the next 10 years.

There are two propositions on the ballot. Proposition 1 will provide about $2.16 million annually for facilities and equipment needs. Proposition 2 will provide about $650,000 a year to replace buses.
