Columbia and Voters Gear Up for Election Day
Columbia City Council members say the reason these propositions are so important is because they provide funding to a variety of projects from recreational facilities to things like road construction.
On a cool November night, the leaves are falling, and in just two days voters will decide where the funding falls.
"I'd really like to see the roads become improved. I've had many a times when I'd wished there was a sidewalk that there wasn't," Columbia voter Mason Prashek said.
Council member Laura Nauser knows the budget and says the city needs all the propositions to pass.
"If not we're going to have to take these issues and take them to the cutting block and refigure our numbers and which projects are going to take the most priority," Nauser said.
Despite concerns, Nauser believes each individual option lets voters choose whats important for themselves.
"We felt that it was important to give people a choice and you'll see that a lot of the issues are broken down into several issues from park improvement to recreation and ice rink. So, it gives people a choice," Nauser said.
A choice they can only make after making the decision to go to the polls.
Prashek says he is going to do just that.
"I want to keep improving Columbia using taxes to make it better," Prashek said.
Not everyone is happy with the propositions. Some people who didn't want to go on camera but said they're not happy and they don't want the taxes.
