Voters Decide Fate Of Water Fund; Affordable Housing Bonds
Updated: Tuesday, November 5 2013, 05:46 PM CST
Texans head to the polls today to make some major decisions.
Proposition 6 creates a $2 billion water fund from the state's rainy day fund for projects that would ensure Texas has enough water for at least the next 50 years. The severe drought across Texas has caused many communities to restrict water consumption. Opponents of the proposal say a $2 billion water fund is fiscally irresponsible.
Here in Austin, residents are being asked once again to approve more money for affordable housing. This time around, the city put up a $65 million affordable housing proposition. Last year voters rejected a $78 million proposal.
Austin and some Pflugerville voters will also be voting for the person to replace State Rep. Mark Strama. Strama left the House to head Google Fiber. Republican Mike VanDeWalle, and Democrats Jade Chang Sheppard, Rico Reyes and Celia Israel are all vying for that spot.
In Williamson County, voters are deciding on a $275 million bond for new roads and a $40 million for parks and rec improvements. Round Rock residents are also voting on a $16.5 million bond for city fire department facilities, $27.4 million for a combined fire and police training facilities. Also they're looking at a $56.5 million bond for parks and rec, and a $23.3 million bond for libraries.
