A Gladstone City Library Bond Measure
was on the November 6, 2012
ballot in the city of Gladstone, which is in Clackamas County
, where it was defeated
This measure sought to issue a bond in the amount of $1 million in order to help pay for building a new library facility in the city. Following a vote in May, projects over $1 million or those which incur debt must now be put to a public vote. The City had attempted to pass the bond without voter approval first, but residents who spoke up at a council meeting stated that if they did not put the plan to a vote they would collect the needed signatures for a petition to force the issue.
