There are four propositions in this bond package. Prop A costs $56 million and would allow the City of Georgetown to build an 80,000-square-foot customer service center.

In an October interview, City Manager David Morgan said the facility would streamline several city service departments that are spread out among different buildings.

He said the building would also create a more convenient way for residents to pay utility bills and other services.

Proposition C, at $15 million, would give Georgetown the option of expanding its existing animal shelter or all it to enter a partnership with the Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter.

Prop D, at $10 million, would allow the city to join the YMCA in building a joint-owned facility. According to the city’s webpage on the bond, the YMA would cover the building’s operating costs, and Georgetown residents would receive discounted rates.
