NEWS & ANNOUCEMENTS

 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
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.

Wastewater
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.
