Two proposals for Rollingwood are on the November ballot to help improve citywide water systems and expand existing municipal facilities.

The total cost of the two bonds is $7.8 million.

Unofficial Travis County Clerk results show Rollingwood residents voting yes on both proposals in the November 2022 midterm election.

Proposal A will allocate $5.3 million to improve water infrastructure through the City’s Water System Capital Improvement Plan.

Proposal B will allocate $2.5 million to the current combined city administration and public safety building.

“Over the past few years we’ve had a lot of major breaks, so the water lines need upgrading after years of wear and tear,” City Manager Ashley Wayman said. “Now is the time for us to step in and get our whole system working where it needs to be, including the workflow.”

Proposal A includes one maintenance project, 15 fire and water pressure projects, and four system improvement projects. If passed, it will result in an annual tax increase of $225 to $235 for a homeowner with a home worth around $1 million.

Proposal B includes 3,500 square feet of renovations for the administration and public safety buildings and the 2,500 square foot expansion of the municipal building. If approved, the cost to taxpayers with homes worth around $1 million will be an additional $130 to $135 per year.

The total cost of the two proposals, if passed, would be an annual increase of $355 to $370 for a homeowner whose home is worth $1 million.
