2018 bond election 

The City of Hutto voters approved the three City of Hutto bond propositions on November 6. The 2018 Mid-term elections nationwide were the highest turnout for since the mid-1960s and Hutto voters followed this trend. Wiliamson County had approximately 54% voter turnout with more than 5,500 turning out to vote on the three Hutto decisions on the ballot.

Preliminary election results show that City of Hutto voters approved all three propositions after the polls closed Tuesday night totaling $125 million in streets and drainage, public safety, and parks and recreation improvements.

 “The voters have spoken loud and clear and have expressed their excitement about the direction of the City. They have validated our strategic plan of investing in public infrastructure as a means of driving quality of life and economic growth in the City of Hutto,” said Odis Jones, City Manager. “The passing of the three propositions shows confidence in the City’s leadership and the goals of the City Council,” added Jones.

A scientifically valid survey of public input contributed to the development of the proposed 2018 Bond Election.
The survey, along with the master plans, council work sessions and community input provided feedback on growth requests to get ahead of congestion for future growth.
