The bond, planned to go on the June ballot, would finance the relocation of the Medical Examiner’s Office and the Police Department’s forensics and traffic units to new seismically safe buildings, the upgrades of dozens of police and fire stations and the improvement of The City’s Auxiliary Water Supply System.
Two-thirds of voters would have to approve the measure for it to go into effect.
However, before the board could vote to put the measure on the ballot, Supervisor Scott Wiener proposed to add the funding for streetlights, saying there’s an issue with their reliability. But board President David Chiu expressed some reservations about adding the funding to a bond addressing earthquake safety.
A vote on the measure was delayed until next week so the board can decide whether to add the streetlight funding.
