The citizens committee for the "Vote Yes for a Safer Kent" police bond measure will have a kickoff campaign from 5-7 p.m. on Wednesday, July 23 at the Golden Steer restaurant, 23826 104th Ave. S.E.

The Kent City Council voted to approve an ordinance to put the $34 million bond measure on the Nov. 4 ballot to build a new police station, replace plumbing and wiring at the city jail and improve the police firearms training facility.

The measure requires a 60 percent super-majority to pass, and if approved, would authorize the collection of about 19 cents per $1,000 of assessed property value, or approximately $57 a year for a $300,000 home.
