* The bond package for the November election will probably be about 400 million dollars -thats about $60 more a year in house taxes.
* The 2010 bond package for transportation was 90 million, we got less than 2 million spent in our area.
* We have not been given any gaurantee that the City will include any funding for the North Lamar/Burnet Study.Heres my attempt to do the math: http://www.lovenorthaustin.
