LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – Slaton voters are now deciding whether or not to spend nearly $5.2 million in six separate bond proposals. Five of the proposals, worth roughly $4.6 million, deal with road improvements.
"They're the major thoroughfares in Slaton," says Slaton Mayor D.W. Englund. "It would be like 34th street in Lubbock."
On the list of improvements is Proposition #3, worth $560,000, for Division Street between 5th and New Mexico Street. "Division Street is the best access for our police and fire; otherwise it takes longer to get to an emergency if they had to go around," says Englund.
Bond Proposition #2, worth $550,000, is for "improving water and sewer system properties and facilities."
If voters approve, Englund says construction could begin as early as February and the paving projects could be complete within 9 months depending on the weather.
Below is a complete list of Slaton bond proposals on the November 3rd ballot:
