The article reports on political reactions over general obligation bond in Dallas, Texas. Voters in the Dallas suburb of Colleyvilie will decide February 5, 2004 on a $34.5 million general obligation bond package that includes $13.7 million for burying utility lines along Texas Hwy. 26. City Council members two weeks ago voted 4 to 1 to hold the election, despite dissent over whether to include burying the power lines in the referendum. Councilwoman Elaine Dolan stated that she does not believe the city should use taxpayer money to pay to have the lines buried, which many consider a purely aesthetic project.
