A Tuesday election will determine the fate of a proposed $5.7 million bond for road improvements that would be financed by a property tax increase approved by the City Council in August.
The city would use the bond to widen sections of Redwood Road and 90th South and improve other intersections. The purchase of a new fire truck and improvements at several parks have been removed from the proposed bond.If the bond doesn't pass, the city will develop another list of capital improvement projects that can be paid for without a bond.
City Manager Ron Olson said he believes the sentiment among residents is in favor of the bond issue. But voter turnout is expected to be low, which makes predicting the outcome difficult.
The polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Information about the locations of consolidated voting districts is available by calling City Recorder Lillie Kellerman, 561-1463.
