MPS to Seek Bond Approval from Voters
Marlow residents will have the opportunity to vote on a bond issue series on February 8, 2022 in the amount of $34,150,000 that will fund multiple projects on the high school and middle school campuses, as well as athletic facilities.
The bond will affect the following programs:
• Vocal music
• Family and Consumer Sciences
It will also fund a FEMA project that will build two safe room/tornado shelters, one at the high school and one at the middle school, that will each hold up to 800 students and community members. FEMA will provide 75% of the funds for the two shelters, and the bond will provide the required 25% that MPS is responsible for.
The tax increase will be 9.9% on the 20-year bond.
Additional information regarding the specific project plans will be published in an upcoming series in The Marlow Review.
