Jacksboro council tables action on certificates of obligation

The Jacksboro City Council decided to table their $3.5 million decision on certificates of obligations for a complete overhaul for city streets until July citing the downward trend of the economy during COVID-19.

The council, during its March 23 meeting, approved the publication of a notice of intent to approve the certificates in the May 11 meeting. 

“I had a ratings call with Standard and Poor’s last week,” City Manager Mike Smith said. “We don’t have the official report back yet, but I will tell you their comments us that regardless of our financial positions is that the ratings for cities going into this next year are going to be pretty bad.”
