CORPUS CHRISTI - City manager Ron Olson recommended today that the Corpus Christi city council choose a $55 million bond package for the November election, with $45 million dedicated to street repairs.
Olson recommended the remaining $10 million be split between the parks and recreation department and building maintenance.
"There's nothing, frankly, that's real sexy about any of this. It's just necessary work that needs to be done," said Olson. He told council members the city just cannot afford any extra projects.
A public hearing on the proposed bond projects was rescheduled to next week.
We're told the $55 million dollar proposal would not require a tax hike, but residents would see a $1.50 monthly increase in utility bills to cover the costs.
