Council approves sale of bonds for fire department, roads

The City Council at its July 2 meeting authorized city staff to sell $20 million in general obligation bonds for the fire department and road projects.

Of the total, $12 million is from the 2006 bond series and earmarked for funding of ongoing road project design and construction, including development in north Frisco.

Voters approved the other $8 million bond in May for construction and equipment at Fire Station No. 8 in southeast Frisco at the intersection of Independence Road and Rolater Road.

Construction of the fire station is expected to start later this summer and take 12 to 15 months to complete.
