In addition to choosing a new mayor in November as well as two commissioners, voters in Coral Springs will decide to take on a new tax. A $12.45 million bond that would take 20 years to pay off would demolish and rebuild two fire stations, provide a permanent building for its popular Safety Town attraction and give extra work space to police investigators. To pay off the bond, it means an additional tax of $19.08 for the average home valued at $233,000.

The city is opening the facilities from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Oct. 18 for tours and to ask questions.

The locations are: the Public Safety building, 2801 Coral Springs Drive; Fire Station 43, 4550 Rock Island Road; Fire Station 95, 300 Coral Ridge Drive; and Safety Town at Kiwanis Park, 520 Ramblewood Drive.
