Missouri City Voters To Decide On Bond Package

$40 million bond proposal would fund streets, drainage, and other infrastructure projects.

Voters in Missouri City are going to the polls Saturday to decide on a multi-million dollar bond package that would pay for street improvements and other upgrades.

That bond package amounts to $40 million.

Missouri City spokesman Cory Stottlemyer says it came about after a series of meetings by a bond exploratory committee that included homeowners from different parts of the city.

“They discussed the proposed projects for the referendum, they talked about infrastructure improvements for drainage, roads, bridges, sidewalks, public facilities, public safety upgrades,” he said.

And what did they come up with? Stottlemyer says voters will see four different propositions on the ballot.

“It’s divided between $6.5 million for drainage, $5.7 million for public facilities, $5 million for the construction of a fire station, and $22.8 million for transportation,” he said.

The transportation proposition includes $8.5 million in matching funds for the Fort Bend County mobility project that voters approved last year.

The Missouri City ballot also features the mayor’s race and two city council races.
