League City City Council on Tuesday voted unanimously to authorize the publish of a notice of intent to issue certificates of obligation totaling $11.7 million.

The bond issuance cost is estimated total $160,000. The hearing is the first of two to be held, with the second to be held on August 11, when the city council will vote on the issuance.

The proceeds from the bonds will fund project including the urban connector, the animal shelter, and Fire Station No. 6, with a pumper.

Council Member Nick Long discussed how the debt will effect the city, noting that the city will be paying off more debt than adding to it over the year.

“If that had not been the case, I would push more heavily to either take it to a bond election or look at what we're doing in the projects,” Long said. Listen (6:56)
