ST. CLOUD - St. Cloud residents have complained about the city streets for years, but are they willing to increase their own taxes to improve them?

The city of St. Cloud has an $18 million bond referendum on next week's ballot.  The money would be used to catch-up on overdue street projects.

Joan Vincent is a member of the city's Transportation Infrastructure Advisory Board.  She says the idea of the bond referendum came from the citywide survey conducted earlier this year.

Vincent says there are several projects on the list that could be taken care of over the next four years.  The highest on the list would most likely be the Seberger neighborhood.

Vincent says, if it passes, a $135,000 home in St. Cloud would see a tax increase of about $23 a year.
