Council Approves Bond Sale To Fund Capital Improvements


Columbus City Council last night approved a nearly 400 million dollar bond sale to fund street repairs and  other infrastructure  projects.

Council member Elizabeth Brown sponsored the legislation.

The money funds a portion of this year's 1 billion dollar capital improvements budget. City bonds have again received a triple-a rating this year.  After the bond sale, Columbus will have nearly 4.6 billion dollars in debt on the books.
