Bond Delay

Posted By on Fri, May 23, 2008 at 11:16 AM

Pima County is one step closer to delaying a ballot proposal to ask voters to approve the sale of $900 million in general-obligation bonds for a variety of projects, including open space and parks.

The county's bond committee met this morning and voted to advise the Board of Supervisors to scrap the idea of holding an election in November 2008. Instead, they'll be advising supes to schedule a November 2009 election for the bond package, says Pima County Administrator Chuck Huckelberry.

Huckelberry says the committee still needs to whittle down about $1.4 billion in requests from various sub-committees to a total package of no more than $900 million, not counting about $560 million in revenue bonds for the sewer system to rebuild the Roger Road treatment plan and deal with a list of environmental requirements.
