Voters Pass Bond Referendum

Voters took to the polls on Tuesday, Sept. 10 to give their approval of the City of Sanford’s $14.5 million bond program.

Starting in late July, City staff rolled out an education campaign to provide details on the potential bond projects, along with their financial implications and potential tax consequences.

Using public presentations, static displays, social media, and the City’s website, staffers spent the past six weeks educating residents on how the bonds will be used to improve the quality of life and economic development in Sanford.

The outcome of Tuesday’s vote reflected Sanford’s optimism about the bond program’s ability to transition the city from a struggling industrial town to a thriving business community.

For more information about the vote count, read this recap in The Sanford Herald. Information on the next steps in the bond process will be forthcoming.
