Springdale voters have spoken and the City of Springdale will be able to move forward with a $200 million bond program that will help us to improve community resources and meet the needs of our growing city without a tax increase. According to the Washington County and Benton County Clerk Offices, all six ballot items passed with at least 74% support from Springdale voters.
"We appreciate the support from the community, and we were pleased to see people come out and vote in this important election," said Mayor Doug Sprouse. "Although we expected these items to pass, we did not take it for granted. Without the trust and encouragement of our residents, the large and important projects that will be completed with this bond would not be possible. We hope our residents will continue to be engaged in the process as we all work to bring these initiatives to life."
These are the six ballot items that were approved by voters:
- Refunding the 2013 Bonds
- Street Improvement Bonds
- Parks and Recreational Improvement Bonds
- Fire Department Improvement Bonds
- Criminal Justice and Administration Building Improvement Bonds
- Animal Shelter Improvement Bonds
The City is planning to hold public meetings in the future so residents can give input on projects related to the bond program. We encourage our residents to follow us at www.facebook.com/SpringdaleAR to be notified of upcoming public meetings. They can also sign up on our website, www.SpringdaleAR.gov, to receive notifications about public meetings.
