The Douglas County Board of Commissioners on Tuesday approved a resolution placing a $25 million bond issue on the Nov. 4 ballot.
If approved by voters, the bond would allow up to $25 million to be spent to pay for the cost of public safety communications facilities at 156th and Maple. The money also would provide for renovations and equipment to benefit other operations, including the County Treasurer and County Department of Environmental Services.
The board will tour the existing facilities on Monday, with future open houses expected prior to the election.
Tuesday’s resolution replaces one passed on July 27, and will allow the county to opt for new construction instead of renovations if that proves to be a more cost effective approach.
