SANTA FE, NM - Santa Fe County announces three general obligation bond questions that will appear on the November 8, 2022, general election ballot. "General obligation bonds fund critical infrastructure throughout the County," said Anna T. Hamilton, Chair, Board of County Commissioners (BCC). "Bond projects are selected to address a broad range of community needs and are leveraged with additional County funds to ensure successful implementation."
If voters approve the general election bond questions, property taxes will not increase.
The BCC adopted Resolution 2022-063, approving the following three bond questions:
Roads. Shall Santa Fe County issue up to $13,000,000 in general obligation bonds payable from general (ad valorem) taxes to acquire, construct, design, equip, and improve roads within the County?
