Woodward continues to show strong future

2013 has been a prosperous year for Northwestern Oklahoma.

Voters approved a half-cent sales tax in Febuary that will make dramatic improvements to the Woodward Fairgrounds, including a new 60,000 square foot expo center.

In August, city voters approved a pair of sales tax measures that will fund a new fire station and improve roads.

Voters in October overwhelmingly voted to pass a $29 school bond issue that promises to provide safe rooms, secure all campuses, update transportation, provide room for a growing enrollment and bring the district in line with technology.

"It signals an affirmation that our citizens agree with the direction we're moving", said City Manager Alan Riffel.
