Board of directors passed resolution to support funding of capital improvements

Columbus, OH – The Board of Directors of the Columbus Chamber today passed a resolution supporting the City of Columbus’ Bond Package, which would enable up to $842 million to be invested to help fund capital improvements, strengthen neighborhoods and support job growth.

If passed, the funds will be invested between four areas – Safety & Health, Recreation & Parks, Public Service, and Public Utilities – allowing the city to secure debt instead of raising income and property taxes. 

“This Bond package, which does not raise taxes on citizens or businesses, gives the City of Columbus the continued authority to borrow money at a favorable rate to address capital needs,” said Michael Dalby, president and CEO, Columbus Chamber. “The city’s proven fiscal management history, as well as Chamber’s commitment to facilitate existing business growth, prompted the Board’s support of the Bond package.”
