Residents can sound off on Pullman bond
Pullman residents will be able to comment on a $2 million bond proposed for the November general election during a public meeting Tuesday.
The bond issue would replace an expiring bond passed by voters in 1998 that paid for paths, sidewalks and greenways in town.
Homeowners pay about 32 cents per $1,000 of assessed value for the 1998 bond, or about $48 per year for a $150,000 home. Rates are expected to either stay the same or decrease slightly for the new bond.
The City Council will hear presentations from various civic groups and city departments about possible projects. They also invited input from the public.
Some projects considered for the new bond are street repairs on all four Pullman hills, an arts pavilion with restrooms at Sunnyside Park, improvements to Reaney Pool and a spray pool for young children, a picnic shelter and restrooms at Kruegel Park, a new path on Johnson Road that would connect to Bishop Boulevard and various sidewalk repairs around town.
The meeting will take place at 7:30 p.m. in the council chambers at City Hall. Comments on the bond issue can be e-mailed to the city beforehand at firstname.lastname@example.org with “Bond Issue” in the subject line.
