Pima County is seeking public input regarding a possible bond election in 2010.

Meetings are being scheduled from September through December, soliciting input on whether a bond election should be conducted in 2010, and if so what types of projects should be included for funding, according to a release from the office of County Administrator Chuck Huckelberry.

The Pima County Bond Advisory Committee holds meetings on Sept. 11, Oct. 16, Nov. 13 and Dec. 11, starting at 8 a.m. each of those days at the Randolph Golf Course Copper Room, 600 S. Randolph Way in Tucson.

Bonds are used by communities to fund major capital improvements such as court facilities, sheriff substations, libraries, neighborhood reinvestment projects, parks and recreation facilities, flood control and sewer treatment facilities, affordable housing, land to preserve natural areas, and other key projects, the release said.

Pima County's most recent bond elections were held in 2004 and 2006. Sixty-four percent of the projects approved by voters during these most recent bond elections have either been completed or are under construction. Voter approval is required to authorize Pima County to sell bonds.

Pima County, along with its cities, towns, and tribes, has identified a number of needed projects for voter consideration.  Descriptions of the proposed projects for a 2010 bond election can be found at www.bonds.pima.gov.

Comments can be provided through mail to the County Administrator's Office, Attn: Deseret Romero, 130 West Congress, 10th floor, Tucson, 85701; via e-mail at bondinfo@pima.gov; or by calling (520) 740-8450.
