After bond propositions pass, Hutto officials working on implementation strategy

City of Hutto officials are moving forward with parks and sports fields plans after voters approved bond funds during the 2018 midterm elections.

City of Hutto officials are moving forward with parks and sports fields plans after voters approved bond funds during the 2018 midterm elections.

City of Hutto officials discussed strategies to effectively implement the city’s incoming bond funds at Hutto City Council’s Nov. 15 meeting.

The city’s three bond propositions, which asked for voter approval to fund infrastructure, public safety and parks projects, all passed during the Nov. 6 midterm elections.

The discussion ultimately focused around the implementation of Proposition C, which outlines funds for parks projects and sports fields.

Hutto City Manager Odis Jones asked council to meet with community groups, including Hutto Parks and Recreation Department officials and local sports organizations to cohesively create a plan moving forward.

Ultimately council members agreed to send invitations to representatives for all of Hutto's recreational groups, including baseball and softball; soccer; wrestling; football; cheer; swimming; tennis; and cycling.

"We’re failing if we aren’t including them [sports organizations] in the beginning," said Hutto City Council member Nate Killough.

Additionally, City Council will invite representatives from the Hutto Parks Advisory Board, Hutto ISD, the Hutto Family YMCA and senior adults.

The council will hold a worksession to discuss the implementation of bond funds at a specially called council meeting on Nov. 20. During that meeting council will canvass the Nov. 8 election results, which make the voting results official.
