How were the three propositions identified to be included in the bond election?
The three propositions are based on input and recommendation from a 14 member Citizens Bond Committee that met in April and May. The City Council reviewed and discussed the recommendations and voted unanimously to put before the voters this bond package that focuses on improving infrastructure throughout the City. 

What is the potential impact on the tax rate?
If a proposition is approved, bonds will be issued on an as needed basis (up to the maximum authorized) for each project. The City Council will determine the amount and the date of the issuance.  Calculations are based on current assessed property valuations.
  • Proposition A - The increase to the property tax rate to support the total amount of Proposition A would be 4.64 cents. The annual property tax amount would increase by $46.40 for every $100,000 of property valuation.  
  • Proposition B - The increase to the property tax rate to support the total amount of Proposition B would be 1.33 cents. The annual property tax amount would increase by $13.30 for every $100,000 of property valuation.
  • Proposition C - The increase to the property tax rate to support the total amount of Proposition C would be .66 cents. The annual property tax amount would increase by $6.60 for every $100,000 of property valuation.

How quickly would the bonds be issued and the projects completed?
Bonds would be issued as needed when projects are ready to move forward. Please remember, if the bond passes, it doesn’t mean the funds have to be issued. For example, if the County does not approve funding for their portion of Ballard Ave./Sachse Rd., the bond might not be issued. 

If the bonds are approved must the money be used only for the purposes specified?
The City is permitted to expend bond proceeds only for the purposes outlined for each proposition. 

When and where can I vote?
Early voting runs Oct. 18 - 29, Election Day is Nov. 2. Remember, the City of Wylie is located in three counties: Collin, Dallas, and Rockwall. Residents may vote at any of the early or election day polling locations in your county, but you must vote only in your county. Collin College Wylie and the Senior Recreation Center will serve as polling locations for Collin County Wylie residents.
