ATLANTA - The Atlanta city council brought back to life on Monday a $149.9 million general obligation bond referendum designed to help the city repair its infrastructure as it prepares for the 1996 Olympic Games.

Voters will now have a change to decide the fate of the borrowing on July 19, the same day that Georgia holds party primaries. The bond referendum had originally been scheduled for March 15, but was canceled a week before that date following a legal challenge over a series of errors in posting notice about the election.
