Bonds to be issued for fiber to home project pending council approval

The Sandy City Council was scheduled to vote Tuesday night, Feb. 18, on whether to issue bonds to pay for the long-awaited fiber to home project.

In January, council members read a resolution concerning bond issuance and started a 30-day waiting period for citizens to decide whether they wanted to vote on the matter. That 30-day period is over.

Prior to Tuesday, the city’s IT Director, Joe Knapp, released a report recommending the approval of a resolution for the bond issue.

The report stated that if the resolution were approved, bond pricing would happen Wednesday, Feb. 19, and bond closure (when funds would become available to the city) on Wednesday, March 5.

The outcome of the vote was unavailable at press time.
