Proposition 1 Drawing Some Criticism

By Jenny Brundin

Salt Lake City, UT – Salt Lake City voters go to the polls next Tuesday to vote on one of the most expensive bonds in city election history. It's a $192 million bond to pay for new police and fire headquarters, an emergency operations center, a west-side fire center, and a public-safety center in the Sugarhouse neighborhood. Law enforcement officials say the projects are critical to the city's future public safety needs.

But some county officials say Proposition 1 contains too many expensive frills that voters need to examine more closely.
