City of Shenandoah Adopts Resolution in Favor of Montgomery County Road Bonds
THE WOODLANDS, TX (April 3, 2015) – The hotly contested 2015 road bond election, which will take place on May 9, received a substantial show of support when the City of Shenandoah adopted the resolution proposed by the Keep Montgomery County Moving political action committee in support of the “Vote FOR Road Bonds” effort. The resolution was brought to the Shenandoah City Council by co-chairs Alan “Barb” Sadler and Nelda Luce Blair and Treasurer Joe Michels. Sadler is former County Judge of Montgomery County; Blair is the founder of The Blair Law Firm, P.C. and Michels is founding shareholder of The Michels Law Firm.
According to proponents, approval of the upcoming 2015 road bonds will go a long way toward improving mobility and safety throughout Montgomery County − investing $350 million on a total of 77 much-needed projects to keep Montgomery County moving. The projects on the bonds were determined by precinct residents, the precinct commissioners, volunteer private engineering firms and other experts. Montgomery County Commissioners Court took the original number of proposed projects – well over 100 – and determined the 77 essential projects that could, based on the county’s recent and projected growth, be performed in a bond amount that would not include an increase in taxes.
“Shenandoah is a focal point for South Montgomery County, and we are uniquely positioned to know firsthand how badly increased mobility is needed in the area,” Garry Watts, Mayor of Shenandoah, said as the resolution was adopted.
