Community members interested in learning more about a continuation bond the city will consider proposing to voters this November are invited to attend a community meeting on Thursday, June 12, at 7 p.m. in the Vert Little Theater Room, 345 SW 4th St. The potential bond, if approved by voters, would continue the existing tax rate of a bond that expired earlier this year. Click here to take an online survey to provide feedback on the proposed projects.

During the public meeting, community members will hear from various City officials about the extensive process the City has conducted to determine potential bond projects for voters to consider. This has included a citizen’s advisory group of community members and three city councilors, who met over seven months to review potential projects and make recommendations to the City Council. In addition, the City conducted a public opinion phone survey to collect input from citizens on some of the potential projects.

The City and council members now want to inform the public of these projects and gather community feedback before making any final decisions on what could appear on a November ballot. Projects up for consideration include deferred maintenance on city buildings to improve efficiencies, upgrades to technology, and replacing a fire station with a new building. This bond is only able to address capital improvement projects throughout the City.
