CLAYTON — During its October meeting, the Clayton Chamber of Commerce board of directors endorsed the upcoming Clayton parks bond referendum. The bond will be on the Nov. 5 municipal election ballot.

“The passing of this bond will allow the town of Clayton to finance the cost of the listed projects over a long period of time without a tax increase. We urge Clayton residents to take the time to learn more and vote on Nov. 5 in favor of this important bond,” said chamber President and CEO Dana Wooten. “This bond will provide $18 million for the town of Clayton for much-needed improvements, expansions and additions to all the parks, which is critical to the economic vitality and quality of life in the Clayton community.”
