Mayor George Evans has planned a series of meetings to discuss a proposed bond issue vote tentatively set for Oct. 27.

So far, 52 issues are on the bond issue list, but that could change.

“This is a work in progress,” Evans said. “We want everyone to talk about these issues and we may add or subtract them, depending on what the people want.”
