Raleigh City Council wants public input on parks bond
Posted July 15, 2014
Raleigh, N.C. — Raleigh City Council members are seeking public input on Tuesday about a $91.7 million parks bond that would fund about one-third of the city's proposed parks projects.
Voters could decide on the bond in November. Approving it means agreeing to a 1.72-cent tax increase.
For the owner of a $200,000 home, the parks bond would mean paying about $35 extra per year in property taxes.
Tuesday's public hearing begins at 2 p.m. in the Raleigh Municipal Building, at 222 W. Hargett St.
