Auburn Transportation District Bond Measure (April 2012)
This measure was defeated
- YES 3,898 (49.39%)
- NO 3,995 (50.61%)
This measure sought to issue a bond in the amount of $59 million in order to help pay for transportation improvement projects for the city of Auburn.
The News Tribune had given its endorsement to this measure noting that state spending has been decreased so the additional money was needed to ensure roads can be improved. Also with a citizen oversight committee the issue seemed to be well planned by the city.
