Troy City Council approved a resolution encouraging voters to approve renewal of State Issue 1 in the May 6 election. The vote came during the council’s brief meeting April 7.
State Issue 1 is a capital improvements program that provides money to local jurisdictions for projects. Voters first approved it in 1987. The voter approval would allow the state to issue $1.875 billion in capital improvement bonds to pay for projects and would not involve new taxes.
Council's finance committee was told in March that the city has received more than $3 million to help with projects such as the North Market Street reconstruction in 2013. State Issue 1 money also was used, in part, to help pay for the new Adams Street Bridge.
