Let Us Vote, the citizen's action group described by The Kerrville Daily Times as "dedicated to forcing the city council to make changes to its funding style," will tell you that they scored a victory for taxpayers by forcing a halt to the city council's plans to issue certificates of obligation to fund a new public safety complex. 

In fact, they did just the opposite. Had the city council been able to approve the issuance of $7 million in COs at the Aug. 24 city council meeting to begin financing a new public safety complex, the city could have quickly begun the process of providing Kerrville citizens with a more efficient, more coordinated public safety operation in the coming years. Furthermore, they could have done so without increasing the city's existing debt or raising property taxes. The COs would have allowed the city to move swiftly on any potential real estate opportunities available for a public safety facility and at a guaranteed, low interest rate.
