2/12/17 – The Columbus City Council took action this past week approving resolutions authorizing issue of $1.5 million dollars in general obligation bonds.

Around $645 thousand will be used for improving the list of street projects that need repair and $900 thousand in bonds will be sold to cover community development projects in TIF #4. Columbus financial advisor Ehlers and Associates has been authorized and directed to handle the bonds’ public sales. When the bond sales are final they will go back to the council for approval.
