Hays County Voters Invited to Visit Bond Referendum Website to Learn about Propositions on November Ballot

Hays County Courthouse, San Marcos, TX – Hays County voters interested in learning more about the two propositions on the November ballot are invited to visit www.HaysCountyBonds.com to watch informational videos about the bond items they are being asked to consider: Proposition 1, which includes a jail expansion, co-located 9-1-1 Dispatch Center, emergency operations center, law enforcement center and training facility; and Proposition 2, which includes safety and mobility improvements for a number of roads in the county and specifically excludes certain improvements to some roads.

The website contains the full official proposition language for both propositions and the language that will be seen on the ballot, which is known as the “ballot language.” Ballot language is a shortened version of the official proposition language approved by the Court. If approved by the voters, the official bond proposition language (the long version) is what will control Hays County’s obligation to its citizens.

In addition to details about the two propositions, citizens can also go to the website to learn about the process undertaken for determining what was placed on the ballots, view the ballot language in Spanish, learn how to register to vote and how to early vote, and ask questions about the bond propositions.
