County schedules hearings on November Bond vote

HARRIS COUNTY $1.2B BOND

OVERVIEW

On November 8, 2022, voters in Harris County will have the opportunity to vote on three propositions for the issuance of bonds totaling $1.2 billion. This bond package would provide funding for multiple categories, including public safety facilities, roads, drainage and transportation- related programs, and parks and trails.

At least $220 million of the bond issuance would be spent in each of the four Harris County precincts for Transportation, and Parks and Trails projects. The $100 million in public safety investments will be countywide. The bond funds cannot be used outside the three categories on the ballot, nor may they be used to fund day-to-day operations.
