Austin voters could be asked to approve another couple-hundred-million dollars in bond money next year. Curated from a list of more than $3 billion in needs compiled by city staff, the bond could pay for anything from flooding prevention to affordable housing.  

Of course, everyone has a pitch.

Voters approved a Travis County bond package totaling almost $185 million Tuesday by a wide margin. More than 73 percent of voters cast a ballot in favor of both bond packages. The funding will go toward capital improvements across the county, as well as extending services to parts of eastern Travis County, Manor and Pflugerville.

Travis County voters will decide in November whether to approve $185 million in bonds. Much of that money will pay for projects meant to fix longstanding problems in the eastern part of the county.

The projects are prioritized in what Precinct 1 Commissioner Jeff Travillion calls a “health and safety” bond.
