Houston City Council voted on Wednesday to set three public hearing dates to allow public input for the seven propositions that will appear on the ballot for the November 8th election.

The three public hearing dates will be scheduled for October 5 at 6 p.m., October 12 at 6 p.m., and October 19 at 9 a.m. in the City Hall Chambers 901 Bagby, 2nd floor.

Council voted to place a $478 million bond on the November ballot at its August 17th meeting – the first time since 2017 a bond was placed on the ballot. Voters can vote on each proposition separately instead of voting for the bond as a whole.

During the meeting, voters will be provided with information and city council members will discuss each proposition that will appear on the ballot.

Much of the bond goes towards improving public safety for $277 million and $192 million will go towards existing city projects for fiscal years 2023-2027 that are not funded.
