Shall Town of Longboat Key be authorized to issue revenue bonds/notes, in one or more series, not exceeding $25,250,000.00, bearing interest not exceeding maximum legal rates, maturing not beyond 30 years from issuance, to finance undergrounding electrical, communications, fiber optics and other utilities and installation of street lighting relating to Gulf of Mexico Drive, payable solely from special assessments imposed against real property throughout the Town and other non-ad valorem revenues if necessary?


Following the closing of the election at 7:00 p.m., the Supervisor of Elections Offices reported the following ballot totals:
