COLUMBIA — A mayoral committee plans to spend $10,000 on advertising and other efforts to promote a $38.9 million bond issue for proposed renovations to Columbia's water system. The main goals of the committee, which met on Monday for the first time, are to publicize the Nov. 4 bond issue and secure voter approval through advertising and direct mail.
