Nampa Sewer Bond
Nampa will ask residents to approve a $165 million bond issue for wastewater system work within the city. Specifically, the ballot language says the money would "renovate, improve, upgrade and better the wastewater collection and treatment facilities of the city."The bonds would be repaid over 30 years, using money from sewer fees. With interest, the city would spend a total $259.6 million over those three decades.City officials say the projects this money would pay for are not optional. If voters reject the bond and its associated financing, the city plans to sharply increase sewer rates to fund the work instead. More details about the city's plans and presentation can be found at its website.As a revenue bond, this measure only requires a simple majority to pass.
