Frequently Asked Question
Q: Voters approved city bonds in 2016, 2018 and 2020. Why does the city need more money now?
A: Streets, intersections, curbs, gutters and other facilities need constant maintenance and improvement to operate safely and efficiently. City Council and staff use a master planning process to address needs, and part of the funding model involves tying specific projects to specific bond packages so money is borrowed closer to when the projects begin. The city seeks approval as funding is needed.
