DALLAS — Voters in East Baton Rouge Parish, La., may have the opportunity in November to decide on a $748.5 million capital improvement plan that would include $716 million of bonds to finance projects in the city of Baton Rouge and throughout the parish.

Mayor-President Melvin “Kip” Holden outlined the proposal to the Metropolitan Council late last week. The council will consider the plan on Aug. 3, and has until Aug. 10 to set the bond election for Nov. 19.
