— Fayetteville City Council on Monday night approved a $45 million proposal to build up public parks.

Council members voted 6-4 in favor of the bond package. The money will pay for four outdoor pools, three neighborhood parks and several other public sports parks.

Critics said the proposal is too costly and consists of too many projects.
