City of Tucson
The City of Tucson continues to move forward in the budget
process. Last week Council took action to abandon plans to raise
additional revenues to balance the budget through the proposed
increases in a residential rental tax and a sales tax on
advertising. We will continue to monitor any additional activity
as this process continues.
Mayor Walkup announced this week that he would not
seek a fourth term as Mayor of the City of Tucson. The
announcement was made as part of his State of the City address.
The Mayor praised the community for its collective response to the
shootings of January 8th. He also outlined the need for economic
development balanced with the preservation of our Sonoran Desert and
the need for greater partnership with institutions like the University
of Arizona for job creation and expansion of opportunity.
One of the most closely watched bills in the
legislature for our community is SB1171. This legislation was
introduced on behalf of the Town of Marana and if passed would allow
cities and towns to take possession and operate wastewater
infrastructure within the boundaries of their jurisdiction. Pima
County is stridently opposing this bill. This legislation centers
around an important debate for our community and may shape the future
of our regional wastewater system.
A full copy of the legislation and summary can be found on the Arizona Legislatures website at http://www.azleg.gov Just enter SB1171 in the top right corner of the page and hit search.
