Caddo Kiowa Technology Center Millage Levy Increase Election

On February 8, 2022 residents in the Caddo Kiowa Technology Center service area will have the opportunity to cast their vote to change the millage rate from the current 1 mil to 5 mills. The passage of this millage would provide stable and predictable funding to ensure the needs of students, teachers and communities are served for many years to come. Funds from this measure will be used to improve current buildings (some more than 50 years old), needing significant investment to remain viable training facilities, improve and/or address issues including safety (improved public safety including installing fire always and sprinkler systems in buildings), childcare center (redesign and modernize of the childcare center to meet community demand and to provide a better, safer and brighter learning environment), fire department support (support the 28 volunteer fire departments in the CKTC district by providing a portable burn trailer that will allow those departments to train locally for structure fees), and both current and future infrastructure/building needs (improved existing infrastructure for the campus including roads, plumbing, electrical, sidewalks, roofs, air conditioners, etc.)

The second question on the ballot would keep the vote in effect unless another election was called to change it. This would eliminate the need to vote on the millage annually.

If you would like to learn more about the upcoming election on Tuesday February 8, 2022 – please visit www.cktc.edu/millage for more information.
