MADILL, Okla. --  A $19.9 million bond issue going to voters next Tuesday will decide if Madill Public Schools will build a fine arts center.

Superintendent Jon Tuck said the district's current facilities for band, choir, and art -- in a small metal building -- aren't meeting the needs of a growing student population.

If passed, the issue will fund a 25,000 square foot classroom building for those classes along with drama, restrooms, and a storm shelter.

"When you ask for bond issues and bond money to build, you need to have a need," Tuck explained. "I don't think anyone can look at our facilities and say there's not a need."

The bond would raise property taxes 0.45 percent. That means if your annual tax bill is $1,000, it would in crease by $45.02.
