SALT LAKE CITY -- The $125 million bond for a new public safety complex has cleared another hurdle.

Tuesday night, the Salt Lake City Council unanimously voted to have the bond appear on November's ballot.

If voters approve, the bond would pay for the construction of an emergency operations center and a police and fire headquarters. It would cost taxpayers an average of $75 extra a year in property taxes.

The city is also considering a partnership with Salt Lake County to house the district attorney's office in the complex.

The recommended area for the building is known as the Barnes Bank block, which sits between Blair Street and 300 East.
