Town Center Bond Issue

Voters approved a nearly $7 million bond issue to pay for the Fayetteville Town Center in 1997 by a 1,755 to 1,549 vote. The bonds were refinanced in 2003, and all associated debt is set to repaid in October 2015 using the Advertising and Promotion Commission’s half of hotel, motel and restaurant tax proceeds.

Heifner wants it all
Just like Bogie and Bacall
A new park, art center, a pavilion
If she gets it all
Then we who would pay
Are broke and might have to leave
Sailing away to Key Largo

If we have to pay it all
Just like the Mayor says
Where's the money coming from
if she gets it all
From the poor who were taxed
And sailed away to Key Largo
Here's looking at you kid
