OLIVE BRANCH, Miss. (AP) - Olive Branch aldermen have voted to issue additional general obligation bonds designed to help pay for several projects.

Over the coming months, The Commercial Appeal reports (http://bit.ly/1GRjLhk) the Board of Aldermen will decide exactly how the $8 million in bonds will be spent with input from city staff. But right now, park improvements and water and sewer projects seem to be front-runners.

The $8 million in bonds is the last segment in a plan to issue $12 million in bonds for the city to catch up on its to-do list.

Mayor Scott Phillips said Tuesday a lot of the capital projects on the priority list reflect the growth Olive Branch has experienced over the years.
