Recreation bond fails

The $20 million recreation bond did not pass muster with the those that voted in the mail in the ballot election. The vote was 3,446 for and 3,932 against the recreation bond. A large number of voters, 7,378, voted in in the election, making it a little over 50 percent of the county voting, with the the county getting back 7,383 ballots returned out of the 13,480 that were sent out.

In February, County Council, after a year and half long vetting process that included the public and community partners, voted for five capital improvement projects to fund with the $20 million bond. The county also had $13 million in funding reserves it was going to use to fund the five projects.
