During the Forney City Council meeting on August 16, the Council unanimously voted to call a bond election a proposed bond program that would address identified projects based on the 84+% growth the City has experienced over the past 12 years.
“Today, our Council proposed a bond program that will address existing projects and prepare for more anticipated growth,” said City Manager, Charles Daniels.
“Like other communities in North Texas, Forney has experienced growth – having added almost 2,000 new residents this last year, alone. This bond program includes a new fire station, a recreation center, multiple road improvements, a senior/community center, a new park, and several renovations projects,” added Mr. Daniels.
“We’d like to encourage residents to learn about these five propositions, but to also vote during Early Voting – October 24 through November 4 – or on Election Day – November 8th.”
Proposition A ($45.8 million) | this proposition includes expansion of the existing Fire Station 2, construction of a new Fire Station 1, and construction of a new Fire Station 3.
