Tarrant County commissioners issue $225M in bonds for projects

Funds will soon be available for a multitude of transportation projects in Tarrant County. County commissioners unan- imously approved the issuance of $225 million in bonds to fund transportation projects at their May 24 meeting. This debt is the first to

be issued as part of the $400 million bond package approved by voters in November. The bond package aims to address projects connected to the population growth and the stress on the county’s infrastructure, according to officials. The debt on these bonds is scheduled to be repaid over 25 years, according to county documents. The county’s property tax rate will not change, according to County Admin- istrator G.K. Maenius. According to discussions last year, some of the money will be used for countywide initiatives and partnerships that are more regional in nature. Some will fund specific proj- ects pitched by individual cities and will require city matching funds. A third chunk of funds will be divided among the four county commission- ers and the county judge to be used at their discretion.

In May 2022, the owners launched another pizzeria in Frisco. Dumitru’s daughter, Dana Mara- cine, is the general manager of the Fort Worth restaurant. She said many customers tell her Jonny’s Pizza is the closest to New York-style pizza they can nd here. “The pizza was always Jonny’s recipe and was always made from scratch—the dough, the sauce. We use premium cheese, we bake it in the brick oven, and it is hand-tossed,” she said. “All the good stu.” Pizza is the restaurant’s specialty, but it also serves classic Italian dishes such as lasagna, spaghetti and stromboli as well as Bualo wings.

cine said becoming a co-owner of a restaurant was not on his radar. But then one of his longtime tax clients, Fatjon “Jonny” Lami, presented him with a dream. As a teen, Lami immigrated with his father from Albania to New York, where he worked with his grandfa- ther in a pizzeria. Lami later moved to Texas and continued to work in pizzerias all the while developing a concept for what Dumitru describes as a combination Italian trattoria and sports bar. Lami told Dumitru his vision. “It was the easiest decision I made in my life,” Dumitru said. “In two hours, I made a decision for hundreds of thousands of dollars to
