Over the years, Stillwater has successfully passed general obligation (GO) bonds to fund projects such as the Kaw Lake pipeline and new fire stations.
In 2000, voters passed a $14.7 million GO bond to build the Stillwater Police station and remodel the Municipal Building. This was a 20-year bond that will be paid off in 2020.
Voters voted down three propositions ($27.5 million of project expenditures) to fund a variety of capital improvement projects, which included recreation, economic development and public safety issues.
Before deciding what to include on the ballot, City Council will evaluate a number of things including public input, planning studies, strategic priorities and operating budgets.
