Voting reminder: tomorrow, February 7, vote on general obligation bonds

Tomorrow there will be a small vote on two general obligation bonds. One will be $125 million to support APS, and the other will be $60 million dollars to support TVI

These are mill-levy bonds, which means that they will have no direct effect except on property taxes. They are also replacing existing bonds which are expiring, so, if they pass, property taxes stay the same. If they fail, property taxes could conceivably drop.
