Early voting for Nov. 7 elections, including three proposals in Hill Country Village, will start Oct. 23.

The background

City Council voted Aug. 17 to schedule a special election, including two separate propositions designed to help fund an envisioned City Hall.

Local officials approved a preliminary concept that would have the existing municipal complex at 116 Aspen Lane demolished and replaced with a larger, 11,512-square-foot structure containing public meeting, administrative, municipal court, police and public works spaces for an estimated $4.72 million.

Digging deeper

One ballot proposal will ask voters to let the city try to sell a publicly owned 14-acre parcel at Tower Drive and Bitters Road. City officials said sales proceeds would be used on the City Hall project, and the undeveloped tract would be sold with R-2 residential zoning. This means each single-family home lot can be up to 4 acres, with no commercial zoning allowed.

A second proposal would ask voters to authorize repurposing $3 million leftover from the city’s 2019 street improvement bond for the City Hall project.

A third ballot measure will ask voters to reauthorize a local sales tax at the rate of one-half of 1% to help fund road maintenance.
