Glenpool Voters Reject, Jenks Voters Approve Bond Issues

Posted: Updated:

UNDATED – Oklahomans in 28 counties voted on school bond issues, tax proposals or city council elections Tuesday.

Voters in Glenpool rejected all three propositions on their ballot: A $1 million bond proposal for streets, a $4.3 million bond proposal for a sports complex, and a $1.7 bond proposal to build a cemetery.

"Its a tough time for people," said Glenpool Mayor Shayne Buchanan, in response to the vote.

"I believe these projects were perceived as enhancements, but not essentials, at this time. I respect the decision of the voters, and will take their message to heart as we move forward with the people's business."
