The city does not have to go through with building the multipurpose performing arts and entertainment center (commonly referred to as the arena).
In The bond election can be revoked we pointed out a state law that allows the voters the option of cancelling the authority to issue previously approved bonds.
Shouldn’t city council put the issue to a test?
If enough voters decide to revoke the bonds then the center cannot be built unless another election occurs where the voters approve it.
If there are not enough votes to revoke the bonds then the voters would have spoken and the city should build the center.
Sounds simple enough
We would also avoid the mounting costs of litigation.
The statute is found in chapter 1252 of the Texas Government Code.
Contact your city representative and ask them to vote to call the election. You should also ask the mayor.
We deserve better
