Bond Referendum Sept 16


In a 5-1 vote, the MCTX City Council approved a special bond election to be held on Nov. 2. The vote was taken at the Aug. 16 In-Person Regular Meeting. If voters pass the measures, the bond referendum will raise more than $85 million for improvements to City roads, parks and other infrastructure.

Voters must choose if they are “For” or “Against” the following propositions:  

  • Bond Proposition A, which would authorize the City to sell $51,615,000 in bonds to fund improvement of streets, bridges, sidewalks and related projects.
  • Bond Proposition B, which would authorize the City to sell $11,220,000 in bonds to fund construction of and improvements to public facilities.
  • Bond Proposition C, which would authorize the City to sell $23,015,000 in bonds to fund improvements to City parks.

The three propositions total $85,850,000.

The Bond Exploratory Committee recommended that the City pursue the highest bond debt service scenario of 19.56 cents per $100 in assessed property value; however, assessed values for tax year 2021 are higher than anticipated, resulting in the same level of funding at a reduced rate of 17.57 cents.

There will be a Sept. 16 Open House at the MCTX Community Center, 1522 Texas Pkwy., to present information to the public and answer questions about the bond referendum.
