City Bond Election
Saturday, September 13th!

The City of Bastrop held a bond election for needed improvements and additions on September 13th. Voting was at City Hall, 904 Main Street. All five propositions passed.

The five propositions on the City Ballot were:

  • Proposition 1- $2.06 million for expanding the Bastrop Public Library.
    (expanding the Library from 6,000 square feet to 19,000 sq. ft. to improve the overcrowding and desperate need for more space)

  • Proposition 2- $545,000 for purchasing land and improving parks.
    (improvements to Fisherman’s Park, Mayfest Park, and Kerr Center Park; help create a new community park on donated land and provide public access to the Colorado River at a fourth park).

  • Proposition 3- $5.6 million for street and drainage improvements.
    (reconstruct streets and drainage on 19 streets throughout the city)

  • Proposition 4- $350,000 for downtown parking improvements.
    (this will provide funds for additional parking and alley improvements to keep downtown commercially viable)

  • Proposition 5- $2.2 million for constructing a new city hall.
    (this will finance a new City Hall on Chestnut St. and house different city departments in a central location and encourage more commercial redevelopment in this area of town)

Mayor Tom Scott wrote a thorough three part discussion on this Capital Improvement Plan Bond election in the Bastrop Advertiser. This excellent discussion shows how this five year Capital Improvement Plan was arrived at after long planning and public discussion.
