[ARCHIVED] Citizen Survey Regarding Proposed Bond Election


League City is considering placing general obligation bond initiatives and a ¼ cent sales tax referendum on the ballot for League City voters to consider in May 2019. All residents are encouraged to take the short survey below to share their feedback on projects up for consideration to be included on the ballot. The survey will close on December 21, 2019


In addition, a City Council work session to discuss a possible bond election is scheduled for Tuesday, December 11, at 5 p.m. in council chambers. A public hearing will be held at the end of the presentation, so citizens can provide their comments. Town Hall meetings have also been scheduled for January 10 and February 7 to gather input from residents. Both meetings are scheduled for 6 p.m. at the Johnnie Arolfo Civic Center.

During a work session on November 27, City staff presented the League City Council and Mayor Pat Hallisey with a draft list of items for their consideration to include in a possible bond election in the new year. Proposed projects included in the presentation addressed drainage, streets and traffic, expansion of the City library to include an additional branch, and various public safety improvements including an indoor gun range for the police department, a central fire station, and a new municipal court building.

In the coming weeks and months, City Council and the Mayor will be discussing the projects in detail as well as the overall decision of whether or not to place a general obligation bond and/or a ¼ cent sales tax on the ballot for League City voters to consider in May 2019. Statutory requirements mandate that City Council must call for an election by February 15, 2019.

“We are still exploring what projects and how much,” said Mayor Hallisey during the work session, stressing that input from League City taxpayers will be important in the council’s decision making. “Be talking amongst yourselves, talk to your neighbors, we want to hear what kind of input you have.”
