DALLAS — The size of Dallas' November general obligation bond referendum will be $42 million more than expected due to increases in the city's property tax base, city manager Mary Suhm told the Dallas City Council at Wednesday's briefing session.

The bond proposal going to voters Nov. 6 had been expected to total $500 million without a tax increase when the council began considering a 2012 bond vote late last year. Then in April the amount that could be issued without a tax hike was set at $600 million.
