Citizens protest against Certificates of Obligation

Bethany Puccio addresses the council, asking why they can’t fund the justice center project through an obligation bond. She and several associates stood outside the city hall before the meeting, collecting signatures to force the council to put the bond issue on the ballot so that the public could vote on it.


The city council session Tuesday evening, July 27, began with a flurry of speakers, all on the subject of the Certificates of Obligation versus a General Obligation Bond, with proponents of both sides split on the measure. While the subject was not on the agenda, members of the public may address the council on any subject during the visitors forum.
