The article presents information that Corpus Christi, Texas, voters next week will determine the fate of a five-part $95 million general obligation bond proposal for a series of projects and whether they will need to increase their property taxes to pay for them. Corpus Christi is the eighth largest city in Texas, with a population of approximately 288.000. The bond proposal is divided into five separate questions so voters may reject parts of the plan without killing the entire proposal. Corpus Christi finance director Cindy O'Brien said.
