Transportation bond package

Thanks are in order to Council member Bill Dodge and Council member Debbie Bryan for researching and bringing to the public's attention a need to take a closer look at the proposed Transportation Bond Package.

These two council members seem to truly be looking out for what is best for the citizens of Keller by opposing this needless bond package.

Concerned citizens should listen to the streaming video on the City of Keller web page during the Aug. 6, 2013 City Council meeting; scroll to time 2:10:05.

Citizens need to understand that certain members of City Council are proposing tax increases for all Keller residents based on traffic projections of 2030 without:

1. Justifying the need for any immediate action (i.e. fact based accident reports, traffic congestion reports, etc.)

2. Reviewing more efficient and ideal alternative solutions (i.e. stop signs instead of a traffic lights) and/or

3. Confirming alternative funding sources (TxDot, County, etc.).

We need to stop the "pet" projects and use the general fund for verified and warranted infrastructure needs.

I urge you to join me and countless others with whom I have spoken in voting “NO” to this proposal at the polls on Nov. 5.

Kris Foote, Keller
