Open Space, Road Bonds on Johnston Town Council Agenda
The Johnston Town Council is scheduled to meet tonight at 7 pm at Johnston Municipal Court.
At tonight's Johnston Town Council meeting, councilors are expected to consider two bond items totalling $5 million to repair roads and preserve open space.
Tonight's session is scheduled to begin at 7 pm at Johnston Municipal Court.
According to tonight's agenda, which is attached to this article, the council is expected to vote on adding a $4 million bond item to the November ballot "for the design and construction of roadway improvements" at various sites around town.
The second bond item, valued at $1 million, would provide funding to the Johnston Municipal Land Trust to purchase land and preserve it as open space.
Town Councilors are also expected to set the town's schedule of collecting taxes in fiscal 2013, including the $24.75-per-$1,000 levy for residental property, which remains the same as fiscal 2012. Johnston's $59.22-per-$1,000 tangible property rate and car tax levy of $41.46 per $1,000 will also remain the same.
And in a further update to the Johnston Police Department — following this spring's installation of a gas tank for fueling town vehicles — the town council is scheduled to award the bid for installation of a new boiler at the police station.
