Bond Information

Scope

The City Council determined that the establishment of a Bond Committee would provide the best means of developing a bond proposal to be placed before the voters of the City. The Committee is charged with considering potential tax supported capital projects related to infrastructure, public safety, parks, a community center, library, etc. The Bond Committee serves as an advisory capacity and reports directly to the City Council. This committee considers what projects shall be recommended for placement before the voters for consideration, as well as recommending bond amounts and an issuance timing schedule.
