I wish each of you a Merry Christmas! As I reflect on this past year and the blessings that have surrounded my family and our community, I am in awe. I send prayers for those who have lost loved ones this year, for those who serve our great country and the sacrifice their families make and are making this very day. I pray for our first responders and the call they consistently answer to help, serve and protect; leaving their families while the rest of us enjoy time with ours. To each of them I say, “We are blessed because of you!” Most of all, thank you Lord for the sacrifice of your one and only son, Jesus Christ. May his peace, joy, and love lead us into the new year as we love each other as he loves us. We really are better together! - Scott Williams

See Mayor Porter’s summary explanation of our (council & staff’s) extensive hard word last night in an effort to bring much needed infrastructure repairs and downtown improvements to you the voters in the form of a bond election in November. Additionally, council indicated a desire to complete multiple projects within the no-new-revenue tax rate, eliminating the need to request additional bonds or increases in taxes for several of these projects. For the larger projects, the decision will be up to you the voters, so make sure you plan to get out and make your voice heard by voting!

Last night the city council held a work session to determine which bond projects to take to our attorney for the creation of propositions for November's ballot. First, remember that any bond passed increases taxes.

This is intended to summarize a very long discussion and address misinformation and sensationalized statements that leave out important facts.

Council was provided a list of 9 items from the bond committee and added three additional for overall consideration at the prior meeting. We worked through the list and had the following discussions (summarized):

#1 Lake Lavon Parks - the council expressed that we are highly interested in this project but that we cannot put a bond in front of voters when we have been unable to reach a deal with the Army Corps of Engineers; they have only been willing to commit to a 5 year lease while the overall cost estimate has changed to $30 million from the $15 million originally supported by the bond committee (plus bonds have to be paid back for 20 years); council unanimously suggested waiting to put a bond forward until we can finish negotiations with the Corps
$15 Million (actually $30 million to complete)

#2 McMillen Drive - the council unanimously expressed that they wanted to take the straightening and widening of this road to voters to create another east-west route that would aide in traffic in alleviating traffic on 544 and allow the new fire station to easily respond to issues to their east
$20,600,000

#3 Park Boulevard - the council unanimously expressed that they wanted to widen this to four lanes between Parker and Country Club to match up with the proposed Park/Skyview road that the county is beginning to move forward on and to assist with traffic
$10 million

#4 & #5 - these two items were for Culvert/Bridge Repair and Intersection Signals - the majority of council pointed out that these will be spread over multiple years and should be handled through fund balance and budgeting instead of bonds that raise taxes (multiple smaller projects)
$5.4 million combined (about 17+ projects)

#6 Street/Alley Replacement - the council recognizes that we have roads that are aging and needing repair after a recent study conducted in the city; the original amount of $5 million was raised to $10 million based on feedback on the number of roads alone that are in need of repair (unanimous again)
$10 million (up from $5 million original estimate)

#7 Downtown Improvements - the council again came to a unanimous decision to create a fund that would allow for work downtown to address paving, drainage, sidewalks, access and more
$5 million (up from $2 million original estimate)

#8 Founders Park Improvements - this amounted to $10 million and was not something the council had received much information on; council stated it would like to wait and review what improvements are being suggested and what improvements can possibly be accomplished through budgeting and fund balance usage, council also wanted to see a cohesive plan in place first before going to a bond
$10 million

#9 Stone Road - it was discussed that Collin County is currently conducting a mobility study to determine what roads they believe need to be widened and Stone is being examined; it seemed too soon to request funding when the county would need to match funds and state they would like it widened
$10,750,000

This ends those suggested by the Bond Committee to council, the rest are ones council decided to examine again

#12 Senior Center - the majority of council suggested that we need to look at total costs and updating that years old plan for this facility before going to a bond; this was sought as a way to ensure that we ask for the right amount of money from citizens to complete the project; council agreed that we should look at using fund balance to complete the 1st proposed phase which is $1 million to renovate the existing building
$5 million

#13 Aquatics (Indoor and Outdoor) - the majority of council expressed that they would like to wait on proposing aquatics (with an outdoor only potential expressed by several members); there were comments about the annual operational deficit expected to be incurred as well as comments about making sure that we do not commit to another project too quickly without giving the Lake Parks a chance to be negotiated; council also discussed using fund balance to build a splash park for the community
$28 million

#14 Sachse Road - the council unanimously agreed that we should move forward with seeking approval for funding so that we can be ready if Dallas County and Sachse obtain their funding for this project (would create a new north-south thoroughfare to George Bush)
$3 million

Council has recommended $48,600,000 to be put before voters in November with an ability to vote on three propositions:
1. The three roads as one bond (McMillen, Park and Sachse)
2. General street/alley repairs as one bond
3. Downtown improvements as one bond.

Council also stated multiple times that we can bring additional bonds to voters in the future as we narrow down better details on projects and as existing bond debt drops off. We also hope to complete additional projects with our fund balance (both Parks projects and Infrastructure projects)

Thank you to all of our service men and women that have previously and continue to sacrifice for our great country. We honor you today and remember, that without your sacrifices we would not live in this amazing country of freedom. Thank you!

Reminder Olde City Park Memorial Day event is happening now. See flyer below, be there at 11:30 AM today for the ceremony. (unfortunately, I will not be able to attend as I am out of town).

Brief History of Memorial Day;
Memorial Day was originally called Decoration Day. Major General John A. Logan led the campaign in 1868 that proposed a day be set aside to decorate the graves of the Civil War soldiers with flowers. Logan chose May 30 as the day because flowers would be in bloom all over the country.

We celebrate Memorial Day as a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation’s military service. In 1971, the Uniform Monday Holiday Act shifted Memorial Day from May 30 to the last Monday of the month.

The National Moment of Remembrance encourages all Americans to pause wherever they are at 3:00 p.m. local time on Memorial Day for one minute of silence to remember and honor those who have died in service to the nation.
