St. Cloud Considers Bond Referendum for Road Projects
ST. CLOUD — The city of St. Cloud is considering putting a bond referendum on the ballot this November.
Mayor Dave Kleis says it stems from their recent citywide survey where respondents indicated transportation, congestion and the condition of roads as the top priority.
The mayor says over the past few years, the city has had more projects needing attention than there was funding available. As a result, St. Cloud is looking at putting an $18-million bond referendum on the November ballot.
The bond would be for 10 years and would cost taxpayers about $18 more per year on a $140-thousand home.
The city council will consider whether to add the referendum at their meeting Monday.
