The election will determine funding for several proposed community projects, including street repairs, storm drainage improvements, a new pumper truck for the fire department and multiple parks and recreation projects — such as a new fence for Kiddie Park, construction of the Price Tower Green and the continued renovation of the Price Fields Complex.
