The Mesa bond package slated for the November 2008 election will include projects for public safety and streets, but not streetlights.

The City Council had split on whether bond money should be used for hundreds of new light poles, but Vice Mayor Claudia Walters requested the project be withdrawn, saying she didn't want to send the wrong message about the bond package.

"I do not want to have a split vote on this," she said Monday.

Instead, the public will be asked to vote on one question for public safety and one for streets.

The cost for public safety will be $178.2 million, and street projects will be $230.6 million.

The election is scheduled for Nov. 4, 2008. The City Council approved the ballot when they called the election on Monday.
