The vote Thursday was for a third reading of the ballot language, which was brought to City Council for first and second readers last Thursday.
District 1 Council Member Ora Houston voted against adding the bond to the ballot, saying she felt the greater community did not have a say in the decision making process.
"This feels like I’ve been bullied into taking something," she said.
District 6 Council Member Don Zimmerman, District 8 Council Member Ellen Troxclair and District 2 Council Member Delia Garza abstained from the vote.
If approved by voters Nov. 8, the mobility bond will:
• Increase taxpayers’ bills by about $56 a year
• Allocate $482 million to implement the city’s seven completed corridor plans
• Allocate $101 million for regional transportation projects
• Allocate $137 million for other master plans and capital improvements
