The Surprise City Council did not completely close the door on calling for a 2015 bond election at its Tuesday meeting, as no vote was cast.
But that door’s only open a crack.
The majority of council members said they were reluctant to forge ahead with calling for a November vote, citing several reasons. Vice Mayor John Williams encapsulated the two primary road blocks this year.
He said all proposed projects tied to the bond are needed but none have such a hook that voters will come out in droves to pass the bond, but his concerns are timing and success.
The Dysart Unified School District will almost certainly seek an override election in November, which increases the likelihood that residents tie the projects together and vote both down.
