BOISE -- Some changes have been made to a proposed Boise bond package.

The Boise City Council directed staff to draft two questions for voters: one dealing with fire and other public safety-related concerns, and another on parks and open space.

Mayor Dave Bieter recommended that change after receiving many requests from citizens for separate bond questions.

Also, a proposed new downtown police station is not in the package.

With those changes, the total cost of the proposal drops from $33.8 million to $32.4 million.

A spokesman for the mayor says the average homeowner cost would be $12 per year.

The proposal is on the agenda for next Tuesday's council meeting.

If approved, it will be on the ballot for the November 5th election.
