City Council Moves Forward on Issuing $7 Million of Debt
On June 22, the City Council considered a Resolution of intent to issue $7 million of debt for the funding of a new public safety building/complex. The facility will house the Kerrville police department, fire administration, and municipal court, replacing the three existing buildings that are currently used for each department.
Motions & Vote
Councilman Garcia moved to deny the Resolution as presented and instruct City staff to return to Council at a future meeting with the appropriate documents and information to put the proposed $7 million debt on a ballot to be voted on by the citizens of the City at the earliest election. The motion died due to the lack of a second.
Councilwoman Eychner moved to approve Resolution 29-2021 as presented. Councilwoman Clarkson seconded the motion and it was adopted by a vote of 4 to 1 with Mayor Blackburn, Councilwoman Clarkson, Councilwoman Eychner, and Councilwoman Hughes voting in favor and Councilman Garcia voting against.
