We saw a recent letter to the editor asking for more transparency in the upcoming bonds elections.
That is exactly what the city of Scottsdale’s bond program (Questions 1, 2 and 3) has been built upon. All 58 bond projects in the three bond questions are listed online by the city with specific project-by-project details on costs.
The $319 million bond package was created via numerous public meetings and put on this November’s ballot by a unanimous Mayor Jim Lane and Scottsdale City Council. Scottsdale Citizens Bond Oversight Committee makes sure the city is spending bond money properly and wisely on the projects approved by voters.
