Mesa, Ariz. will exhaust $170 million of general obligation bonds authorized by voters in 2008 with a $60 million sale approved by the City Council last week. Mesa will also sell $17.3 million of GO bonds from a 2012 authorization.

The city will use some of the proceeds to purchase land for a replacement fire station, but does not have the remaining capacity needed to build the facility. Funding for construction of the station is expected to be included in a GO request that could go to voters in the fall.
