City of El Paso proposing nearly $1 billion bond for public safety
Posted On: Jul 10, 2019
El Pasoans may have the chance to vote on a $900 million bond for public safety in November.
City leaders said they conducted a study that found that if residents want better emergency response times, they need better and more facilities.
“We need to make sure that anytime somebody is relying on a police officer to show up that we need to have the resources to (respond) ... in a timely fashion with the right number of people in the right amount of time,” said Dionne Mack, deputy city manager for public safety.
