November 3, 1998

    12 measures. Mainly non-controversial bonds. Two stand out as interesting. One, a lease of 50 years to expand the Palmer Auditorium into what became the Long Performing Arts Center and create the Auditorium Shores park. The other authorized construction of the Town Lake Community Events Center, now the Palmer Events Center.  The two measures passed with means authorized by a temporary tax on rental cars of 5 percent. The performing arts center measure passed 63-37 percent; the events center measure passed 56-44 percent. Turnout was 35 percent.
