Voters back $40.6M in BernCo bonds

Bernalillo County’s six general-obligation bond questions — worth a total of $40.6 million — have passed by wide margins.

Each question earned at least 70% voter support, according to unofficial results.

The highest-dollar of the six questions pertained to parks and recreation. It was also the most popular with 77.1% of voters in favor of it.

The $16.8 million question includes funding for a North Valley swimming pool, improvements at the Paradise Hills Community Center, additions to the Mesa del Sol sports complex and a range of other projects.

Voters were also asked to approve $13.45 million in bonds for public safety facilities/fleet/county buildings; significant portions of that money would go toward upgrades at the county jail and youth detention center.

The other four bonds voters were deciding included $4.3 million for transportation projects, $2.25 million for storm drainage and utilities, $2.25 million for libraries and $1.5 million for public housing.

The bonds’ passage will not raise property taxes.
