Tarrant County commissioners approved a contract May 4 with consulting firm Freese and Nichols to help a bond planning committee rank transportation projects the county intends to help area cities fund.

Voters will be asked to approve $400 million in bonds in a November election. Of that, $200 million would be set aside for municipal projects.


The consulting firm will be paid up to $260,770 to work with the planning committee over the next few months.

The committee’s first meeting will be May 11, following the Commissioners Court meeting.
