General obligation bonds are funds borrowed by the city for specific public purposes. Usage must be approved by the voters, and the bonds are repaid with property tax revenue. If the proposition passes, bonds will be used to fund a commercial terminal and related improvements at McKinney National Airport over the next several years. Paying for the bond debt over an extended period allows the property tax collected from current and future taxpayers to be used to pay for public improvements.
