BR Metro Council kills Mayor's bond proposal
BATON ROUGE, LA (FOX44) - The Baton Rouge Metro Council has killed Mayor/President Kip Holden's third bond proposal. Shortly before 5pm, Wednesday afternoon, the council decided not to vote on the proposal.
An election was set to happen in August.
This means the proposal is permanently off the table. Holden says his 750-million dollar proposal would have allowed for improvements in public safety, infrastructure, and economic development.
This was the third attempt for the mayor to get a bond issue passed in East Baton Rouge Parish.
