The Scottsdale, Ariz., City Council voted last week to reestablish a citizens bond review panel in order to study proposals that could be included in a 2013 referendum.
The task force was created in 2011 to consider a 2012 bond election, but was disbanded when the council decided to wait another year.
Bond projects in the deferred proposal totaled $572 million.
The council approved $30,000 to fund the seven-member panel.
Voters would be asked to approve an increase in the city’s secondary property tax to support any new general obligation debt.
Scottsdale passed a $350 million GO referendum in 2000. Voters rejected a $37 million bond plan in November 2010.
The city’s $622.7 million of outstanding GO bonds are rated triple-A across the board.
