Public hearing Tuesday on $92 million bond proposal

Jan 14, 2014

Omaha voters could be asked in May to approve or reject $92 million in bonds for a variety of projects.

The Omaha City Council will hold public hearings Tuesday on five bond proposals. The largest is $47,375,000 for road construction and maintenance. $13.6 million would go toward sewer projects, and $14.5 million toward parks and recreation improvements.

An additional $16 million in bonds would pay for infrastructure improvements to the city’s public buildings…as well as vehicle and equipment needs for the Omaha Fire Department.

The city council meets at 2pm.
