The City of Austin is planning a Bond Election where voters will get to decide whether the city should borrow money to fund specified city infrastructure, facilities, or other capital improvement projects or programs. Four community meetings on potential projects for the Bond Election are scheduled for late March beginning on March 20.
The Task Force, City staff, and the community will work together over the next several months to identify and review potential projects and programs for future bond funding. In May 2012, the Task Force will provide recommendations for the City Council to consider when developing a potential bond package.
