This city's residents should have smoother trips to the post office and the grocery store because of a bond issue they approved in the Nov. 6 election.

The voters favored, by a 197 to 144 count, the sale of $180,000 in general obligation bonds to construct or repair 38 blocks of city streets.The favorable vote, however, doesn't necessarily mean the bond sale will take place, according to Ken Chamberlain, city attorney. It simply authorizes the sale if that route to obtaining the funds is decided upon.

In the meantime, other routes that may be undertaken will be an application for a Community Impact Board grant or the commitment of B & C road money plus a monthly assessment for road work over 13 plus years.

The road work could begin next summer after the completion of a current project, the installation of a sewer system, has been completed in the spring.
