County seeks input on potential bond projects
Wednesday, June 21, 2017 by Caleb Pritchard
The Travis County Citizens Bond Advisory Committee is ready to take its ranked list of more than a billion dollars’ worth of potential bond projects out for public review. The committee has spent the last four months weighing the $1.1 billion list and has at last ascribed each one a priority ranking on a four-part scale. This evening, county staff and members of the committee will trot out the revised list at the first of six public meetings to be held across the county. Feedback from those events will be collected and weighed in future revisions of the list. The Travis County Commissioners Court will ultimately decide later this summer which, if any, projects will go before the voters this November.
