Tarrant County commissioners issue $225M in bonds for projects
V E RD.
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.
