Ferris residents vote down city bond package


Ferris residents in attendance at Monday night’s city council meeting sent a message loud and clear Saturday that they were not ready for the city to invest in a $12 million project that would have provided funds for the construction of a new Municipal Center. The bond was voted down with 272 (82 percent) residents voting against the proposal, while only 59 (17.8 percent) were in favor. The project looked to combine a recreation center, senior center, police station, fire station, city offices, council chambers, municipal court, and municipal jail all under one roof. The bond proposal was the result of ongoing communication between the community and the City of Ferris with the purpose of providing enhanced community services and much needed updated facilities, said City Manager Bill Jordan.
