Voters approved measure 20-303 in last nights’ special election.  It’s projected to drive revenue up $90,000, which can only be used for improving or repairing Coburg’s streets, or retiring bonds purchased for road maintenance.

Commercial diesel sales are not affected by the measure.  Officials are looking for other ways to improve roadways in the city, which sees regular trucking traffic.
