City Council Approves Projects for $125 Million Bond 2022 Program
JULY 19, 2022
Bond Central gives citizens a big picture view of all bond projects since 2012. In case you don't know much about bonds, bonds are simply accumulated funds from small individual tax increases which have been voted on by residents. When these items are voted on, they are usually for specific projects, such as residential street resurfacing or adding ramps to the sidewalk at your local park.
General Elections and Midterm Elections have given the citizens of the City of Corpus Christi many opportunities to vote on these proposed bonds. Since 2012, citizens have voted to approve most of these projects.
While the approval of these proposals has led to tax increases, these increases have been very small and incremental. For example, the 2018 bonds resulted in 2 cent increases per $100 valuation or $26 more per year for a home valued at $130,000 and about $34 more per year on utilities.
Bonds 2012, 2014, 2016, 2018 and 2020 involve different projects, departments and services. Check out your City projects!
