Voters in Lincoln County will decide Tuesday whether to approve a $6.68 million bond issue to make improvements to the Lincoln County Fairgrounds in Chandler.

The proposition involves construction for a multi-purpose Agricivic Center, with work to the the existing structure to enclose and extend it, along with updating of restrooms, lighting, air conditioning and heating and also adding a cafe.

Fairgrounds officials said the goal is to turn the area into a versatile multipurpose facility that can be used for many activities.

The ballot shows the proposition would provide a multi-purpose Lincoln County Agricivic Center with show ring, meeting rooms and more, with bonds issued and then paid out within 10 years.

A meeting room as well as other site and parking lot improvement also are planned.

Paying for the bond would require increases to ad valorem taxes on properties in Lincoln County, with the average increase overall being 2.44 percent, although there are some variables based on school districts. The Lincoln County proposition must receive a 60 percent supermajority vote to pass.

With a projected 10-year issue, the Lincoln County Board of County Commissioners shows bond payoff for 2028.

According to a Lincoln County General Obligation bond list, the projected percentage increase in property taxes, based on common school districts in the county are:

• Agra — 2.40 percent
