Birmingham city council seems to be in no rush to give Mayor William Bell what he wants. Council delayed, for another week, any action on Bell's proposed $150 million bond referendum.
The item would have required unanimous consent to pass. Three council members voted no and a fourth was absent.
Bell wants the referendum October 9th.
Here are the sticking points: a majority of council wants more input on what projects are included, and council members expect to hold city-wide public hearings. Bell says half of the money would be spent now on city projects. The rest would be reserved for future use.
