College Station Works to Correct Inaccurate Bond Info

Voters in College Station, be aware of a mistake in some information sent to you.

The city recently mailed a brochure to residents discussing the $100 million in bond proposals. In the Spanish text, it incorrectly states the proposition concerning the 26-million dollar city hall project would *not* raise the property tax rate.

In fact, it would go up 4.5 cents if approved by voters. The information is correct in the English text of the brochure.

The city is working through Spanish-speaking media to correct the error, and has updated its online information, which is linked for you below this story.

In total, six propositions are on the ballot. The first listed has the highest price tag: $48.9 million for street and transportation improvements.

Other propostions call for the creation of a sixth fire station and a community center, among other projects.

Only the city hall item, Proposition 6, would raise the city's property tax rate. The new city hall is currently slated to cost about $36 million, but the sale of the current city hall would cover a portion of those costs.
