MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - People in Missoula County have invested more than $2 million in new parks and trails.

The money is invested in voter-approved general obligation bonds that will pay for construction of the $38 million Fort Missoula Regional Park and upgrades to dozens of playgrounds and new trails.

The Missoulian reports (https://tinyurl.com/hvukaov ) debt on the bond will eventually be paid back by property tax hikes.

Officials say it’s unusual for a community in Montana to market its debt to its own citizens.
