The City Council will call an election for November of 2017 to allow citizens to consider ‘Re-confirming’ the issuance of $3 million in Road Bonds for the improvement of the three arterial roads in Granite Shoals:  Phillips Ranch Road, Prairie Creek Road and Valley View Lane.  These bonds were approved by the voters in November of 2016, however, the financial plans for the improvements and the scope of the work have been modified due to changed circumstances at the City.
