On November 6, two-thirds of Roswell voted to approve the city’s borrowing $14.7 million dollars.
[Wednesday] morning, I directed staff to begin the work to be funded by this loan – 400/Holcomb Bridge Road interchange improvements ($6 million), multi-purpose trails along Holcomb Bridge and Eves Road ($2.7 million), 4 athletic turf fields for our children ($2 million), a therapeutic pool for our seniors ($2.5 million), and replacement of the old fire station on Holcomb Bridge Road ($1.5 million). Despite a struggling economy and vocal opposition, the voters of Roswell approved these investments by a wide margin in every precinct across the city.
The regional sales tax for transportation failed to pass earlier this year because the voters of metro Atlanta lacked confidence in government. The two-third’s vote in favor of Roswell borrowing $14.7 million dollars was a vote of confidence in our city government and city council. Our nation may face difficult challenges and a divided electorate, but Roswell’s voters are united and our future is bright.
Thank you for your vote of confidence in the city of Roswell.
Mayor of Roswell
