The final Town Hall Meeting for Road Bond Confirmation Education will be held in Granite Shoals from 9-11 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 14 at the fire hall on Ranch to Market Road 1431.

At the Granite Shoals City Council meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 10, one citizen, Arturo Rubio, made it clear he still wants to know about studies and plans pertaining to the use of the money proposed for the project. That is the purpose of the Saturday meeting being conducted by Granite Shoals Road Bond Education Committee.

In the November General Election, citizens will be asked to reaffirm money already voted for the work.

Town Hall takes citizens back to the bonds Saturday

Granite Shoals citizens will have a chance to learn about their road repairs and to make themselves heard at a Town Hall Meeting for Road Improvement Bond Update at 9 a.m. Saturday, July 29.

There is a lot to learn. Since Feb. 15, when hopes evaporated for a 55 percent match to $3 million in voter-approved road bonds, few council meetings have gone by without discussion of new surveys, new engineering study and, inevitable, cutbacks in the original plan to completely restore the three main north-south traffic arteries in the city.

The council is determined to go back to voters to affirm approval of a $3 million, rather than $6 million, project.
