Public Infrastructure and Facility Bond Questions:
During the fiscal year 2018 budget process, the City Council directed the Capital Planning Committee to craft bond questions to respond to immediate public infrastructure and facility needs that also lessen the burden on the general fund and ultimately the tax payer. Three bond questions were approved by the City Council to be voted on by the community in the upcoming November 7th election.
