December 1975

Voters approve 4.5 million dollars in bonds to buy land along Barton Creek and reject wastewater bonds extending sewer lines along Barton Creek.

Now, the wastewater, water and wastewater bonds, were defeated, which was a good thing. But then the Water and Wastewater Department figured out ways to extend the lines anyway without the bond election. It was a sad thing that that happened.
