City of Midland Will Put $195 Million Road Bond on the Ballot in November
Roads and infrastructure in Midland will be on the ballot in November and citizens will be asked to foot the bill on improvements.
According to NewsWest 9, improvements are needed all over the city and with the 4B tax being voted down in May, now the city needs funds to provide improvements on roads in Midland.
The $195 million road bond will be divided up with 63% dedicated to Midland roads, 24% to utilities, 6% to engineering and consulting and 7% on ADA Compliance.
Council members say the bond overall is a good idea but more discussion needs to be made on the city's budget.
They will meet with staff and make a decision in August and if council approves the bond, it will be on the ballot in November.
