Birmingham, Ala., voters Tuesday overwhelmingly approved six ballot measures authorizing $150 million of general obligation bonds.
All six questions on the ballot were approved by about 80% of voters casting ballots. Only 10% of the city’s voters went to the polls, according to the Birmingham News. The 30-year bonds will be secured by the available capacity from a dedicated city tax that can be levied up to 12 mills. Under the plan, about half of the bonds will be sold next year, and the remainder of the capacity at a later date.
