The Sachse 2021 Bond Committee held its first meeting March 29 via Zoom to discuss their role in the bond package process and to hear project recommendations from city staff.
Sachse City Council was first briefed on the committee process during the March 2, 2020, regular city council meeting. However, the city postponed the bond initiative because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
One year later, the bond initiative was resurrected during the March 1 regular meeting. Council members and the mayor each made one nomination to the committee, which they approved.
The committee consists of Tim Shivers, Lindsay Buhler, Brad Ford, John McKinney, Charles Elk, Josh Ackles and Scott McMurdie.
The majority of the bond committee meeting was informational, providing members with recommendations from city staff for projects and establishing officers for the committee. Elk previously served on the 2006 bond committee and because of this, the committee voted him as chair. Ford will serve a vice chair and Shivers as second vice chair.
