2019 Public Safety Bond

2019 Public Safety Bond


The 2019 Public Safety Bond was approved by the City of El Paso voters November 5, 2019. The bond, which is estimated to cost $413,122,650*, will pay for public improvements for the Police and Fire Departments, including vehicles and equipment.

The projects will be funded by the City issuing general obligation bonds. The bonds are a debt that the City would pay back over time from taxpayer dollars.

For a household with a $100,000 home, the City currently estimates that property taxes would increase an average of $12 each year for the first six years, rising to a total annual average increase of $72 by year six. This is an average based on current assumptions, so in some years the increase could be higher, in other years it could be lower.


The total proposed bond amount is $413,122,650*.

* Amounts listed are preliminary estimates subject to change. Actual use of any approved bond funds will be determined by subsequent action of City Council.
