City bond proposition

Georgetown voters can expect to see a $90 million mobility bond on their May ballots.

Proposed by a citizens advisory committee in
January and approved by City Council in February, the bond will include 10 projects at a total cost of $120 million. Of that total, $30 million will come from leftover bond funds from 2008 and 2015 that were never issued, city officials said.

More information on the bond can be found here.

Other area elections

Georgetown residents who live within Liberty Hill ISD and Jarrell ISD boundary lines will also see school bond propositions on their ballot.

Liberty Hill ISD will have a nearly $500 million bond broken down into four propositions. The bond targets construction of new schools, land acquisition for future schools, and renovations and expansions to current infrastructure, among other projects.

Jarrell ISD voters will have a $113.37 million bond on their ballots. The bond is split into two propositions focusing on construction of future schools, land purchases and expansion of the district stadium, among other items.
