(KSL News) Members of the Salt Lake City Council showed their support Monday night for Proposition 1 after Mayor Rocky Anderson opposed it.
The $192-million bond would fund a new public safety headquarters building for police and fire, a substation in Sugar House, a west-side training center and an emergency operations center.
Salt Lake City Council member Nancy Saxton said, "This bond is absolutely essential, and we need the support of the people to make sure our community is safe for all of us."
If the proposition passes, a Salt Lake resident whose home is worth $300,000 would pay an extra $172 a year in taxes.
