RIO RANCHO, N.M. — Rio Rancho voters can expect city bond questions for roads and public safety on the municipal ballot in March.
At their meeting Wednesday night at City Hall, Rio Rancho Governing Body members voted to direct city staff members to prepare for their Nov. 13 meeting a resolution that, if approved, would put the two general obligation bond questions before voters in the March 3 election. Approval of the bonds wouldn’t raise taxes, but denial would decrease taxes.
According to city information, the needs for roadwork and public-safety vehicle and equipment replacement exceed the money the city has available. The bonds would continue a cycle of new bonds replacing those that had been paid off.
