City Council Votes 7-0 to Call Bond Election

Sugar Land, TX – Sugar Land City Council called a $90.7 million bond election for Nov. 5 to address drainage, public safety facilities and equipment, mobility and an animal shelter.

City Council’s unanimous 7-0 vote occurred during a special meeting on Aug. 14 and provides voters an opportunity to decide whether to fund projects identified by residents.    

“More than half of the proposed projects address drainage, with 82 percent of the total dedicated to drainage and public safety projects,” said Assistant City Manager Chris Steubing. “Although there is approximately $45 million in debt capacity over the fiscal year 2021-2023 timeframe, that is not sufficient to support the total $90.7 million worth of projects identified in the GO Bond package.”

If voters approve the projects, the bonds will require a 3 cent tax rate increase in fiscal year 2021, which represents $10 per month for the average Sugar Land homeowner.  All projects will be completed or under construction in three years.

The projects are spread geographically throughout the city and can be viewed in detail at www.sugarlandtx.gov/GOBondMap.
