Library and Police Bond
Original post made

I am curious how the City Council plans to convince the community to pass a $95 million bond for the library and police station. It seems that the survey says that more people support funding the library than the police station. But a $50 million bond for the library failed a couple of years ago. So I can't see how you can get a community who wasn't willing to support a $50 million bond to support a $95 million dollar bond, especially when the increased costs are attributable to a community project that isn't as popular.
I am afraid the Council is going to lump the two projects together, because the police station won't pass on its own. I think if they do that, the bond will fail and we will again have gotten nowhere toward improving the dilapidated Mitchell Park Library.
