Friendswood bond meant to fund drainage improvements, capital projects

October 17, 2019 / Haley Morrison

In November, Friendswood citizens will vote on the largest bond in the citys history at a total of $76.7 million.The bond includes money for capital improvement projects as well as seed money for Clear Creek flood mitigation efforts, or money to entice other governing entities to help pay for the projects.The bond has six propositions: drainage, transportation, a public works facility, a public safety building, a community center and parks. The propositions were split up due to a state law, city staff said.The drainage proposition, the largest proposition on the ballot, will include buyouts, City Manager Morad Kabiri said. This is leaving some residents hesitant to support the proposition until they know whether they will get bought out.
