                     Proposition 2 - Drainage Projects.

 

While work has been completed on all initial 2013 bond projects, these funds are going to be specifically earmarked for projected overages for two specific 2019 bond projects, Klein Road Improvements - Phase II and Goodwin/Conrads Lane expansion.

                     Proposition 3 - Public Safety Facilities and Projects.
