Olive Branch votes to issue $8 million in bonds

OLIVE BRANCH — Olive Branch aldermen have voted to issue additional general obligation bonds designed to help pay for several projects.

Over the coming months, The Commercial Appeal reports the Board of Aldermen will decide exactly how the $8 million in bonds will be spent with input from city staff. But right now, park improvements and water and sewer projects seem to be front-runners.

The $8 million in bonds is the last segment in a plan to issue $12 million in bonds for the city to catch up on its to-do list.

Mayor Scott Phillips said Tuesday a lot of the capital projects on the priority list reflect the growth Olive Branch has experienced over the years.
