City of Las Cruces GO Bond Election
Added June 13, 2022 by Las Cruces Sun

LAS CRUCES - Residents appeared before the city council Monday to push for the inclusion of their preferred projects on the ballot in this year's general obligation bond election.

This November, Las Crucens will go to the polls to decide which projects will be paid for through GO bond financing. GO bonds are issued by the city and paid back through a temporary increase in property taxes.

In 2018, city voters approved four GO bond-funded projects for a cumulative $35.6 million.

During a Las Cruces City Council work session June 13, councilors heard an update from Architectural Research Consultants, a firm hired by the city to solicit and survey the public to come up with a slate of potential GO bond project ideas, as well as estimate costs and help the city arrive at a final project list.
