State law does recognize the need for cities to build essential service buildings without the requirement to go to a public vote. It does this by recognizing the differences between essential and non-essential buildings. Essential buildings include police, fire and public works. Non-essential buildings are golf courses, pools, libraries, etc. with regard to financing construction. City councils may bond for essential city buildings without a referendum. More will be known in November when a total price is determined and tax impact is known.
