City Council to host discussion on possible bond election

The Scottsdale City Council will meet at 5 p.m. Monday, April 15, to consider calling a bond election this November.

Monday’s discussion comes after the city concluded a series of public meetings and online public feedback about which potential project investments are most important to the community.

Throughout March, Scottsdale residents attended open house discussions and provided feedback on a list of 67 potential capital projects the city has identified as needs but lack funding to move forward.

Those discussions resulted in a narrowed list of projects, which the City Council could send to the Nov. 5 ballot for voter consideration in a bond election.

Monday’s regular City Council meeting was moved from its scheduled Tuesday slot so all City Council members can participate in the discussion, which will not be possible Tuesday due to a scheduling conflict, a press release stated.

In addition to the Monday meeting, a special City Council meeting will be held Tuesday, April 16, so the City Council can hear several items that could not be moved to Monday due to public notice requirements.

Monday’s agenda will include other items in addition to the bond election discussion. Find agendas for both meetings at ScottsdaleAZ.gov, search “City Council agenda.”
