Graford ISD hosting town hall on bond tonight

By LIBBY CLUETT

Graford ISD will conduct a community meeting tonight concerning the Nov. 5 bond election for the district.

The meeting begins at 7 p.m., in the Graford ISD Cafeteria and will present information and answer any questions regarding the $7.5 million bond the district proposes to voters.

Aging facilities is one issue the bond seeks to address. Plans are for the bond, if approved, to cover the following: school buses, the expansion and renovation of buildings and the cost of building an athletic complex, featuring new baseball and softball fields, a track and new locker rooms.

Early voting for the Nov. 5 election is underway. In addition to Graford ISD, the fate of a $25 million Mineral Wells ISD bond and nine constitutional amendments is in the hands of voters.

Additionally, voters across the county will be asked to cast a vote in the Palo Pinto Hospital District board election, deciding on either incumbent J.C. Colton or Matthew Baker.

Early voting goes through Nov. 1 and takes place at the following locations:

• At the Palo Pinto County Courthouse, located at 520 Oak St., in Palo Pinto: Oct. 22-25 and Oct. 28-Nov. 1, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

• At the Palo Pinto County Annex Building, located at 109 N. Oak Ave., in Mineral Wells: Oct. 22-25 and Oct. 28-Nov. 1, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.; extended hours are on Sunday, Oct. 27 – 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

• Lamar Elementary School: Oct. 25, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Oct. 26, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
