PORTLAND — The City Council has unanimously endorsed a $33 million bond proposal to renovate the Cumberland County Civic Center.

The council endorsed the bond, which will be voted on countywide on Nov. 8, during its meeting Monday night.

In a resolution of support, the council cited the Civic Center’s economic impact on the region, the hundreds of jobs it provides and the need for renovation. It also noted current low interest rates and construction costs and the likelihood that the bond will have no impact on county tax rates.

A bond to pay for the county jail was paid off earlier this year and it’s expected that the money that had been going to pay off that loan will be shifted to paying for the renovation bond, if the voters approve the borrowing in November.
