The Wylie City Council on March 9 gave direction to city staff for parameters for a Citizens Bond Advisory Committee, which will devise recommendations on a bond package for city improvements.
An ordinance will be considered at the next council meeting, to be held March 22.
At a February 2020 work session, councilmembers discussed the makeup of a citizens bond advisory committee. Each councilmember would appoint two representatives and the committee would be formed after the May 2020 election, but because of the pandemic, the election was subsequently moved to November 2020.
The committee would need to be formed at the next council meeting in March – when councilmembers would recommend people to appoint on the committee – to allow sufficient time for council and bond committee develop a list of projects for a November bond election, Mayor Matthew Porter said. One of the projects being examined is an aquatics center to be constructed near City Hall.
