Slaton to spend millions on roads if voters approve bond proposals

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:

  • City of Slaton, Bond Proposition #1:  The issuance of $1,725,000 general obligation bonds for street improvements, including improvements to 20th Street
  • City of Slaton, Bond Proposition #2:  The issuance of $550,000 general obligation bonds for improving water and sewer system properties and facilities, including a water storage system.
  • City of Slaton, Bond Proposition #3:  The issuance of $560,000 general obligation bonds for street improvements, including improvements to Division Street from 5th Street to New Mexico Street.
  • City of Slaton, Bond Proposition #4:  The issuance of $1,470,000 general obligation bonds for street improvements, including improvements to Panhandle Street from 20th Street to 9th Street.
  • City of Slaton, Bond Proposition #5:  The issuance of $610,000 general obligation bonds for street improvements, including improvements to Woodrow Road from US Highway 84 to 20th Street.
