Voters to decide on Raleigh transportation bond
Posted June 18, 2013
Raleigh, N.C. — The Raleigh City Council voted 5-3 Tuesday to put a $75 million transportation bond on the fall ballot, but the details of what might be included haven't been determined.
Councilmen John Odom, Thomas Crowder and Bonner Gaylord voted against the proposal, saying they believe a bond is needed but oppose the idea of approving a dollar amount without any details.
The council is expected to hammer out the details of the bond at a June 24 meeting.
If approved by voters in October, the bond would raise local property taxes by 1.12 cents per $100 of valuation.
