Every four years the Town of Oro Valley has to put a “Home Rule proposition” on the ballot that allows for the Town budget to be determined locally and spent locally, instead of being limited by the state-imposed expenditure limits and rules. Oro Valley residents have approved the Home Rule proposition every time (1982, 1986, 1990, 1994, 1998, 2002, 2006, 2010, 2014 and 2018).
Prior to reading this, which best describes what you knew about the Town’s Home Rule proposition?
Instead of doing a “Home rule proposition” vote every four years, the Town can ask voters to approve a “permanent base adjustment proposition” to permanently adjust the Town’s 1979 budget limit. In February 2020, the Oro Valley Town Council voted to place a permanent base adjustment ballot question (Proposition 480) on the August 2020 Primary Election ballot.
Which of the following statements about a permanent base rate adjustment are TRUE for you, if any? (Choose all that are TRUE)
In Fiscal Year 2018/19, the Town of Oro Valley funded its key services with $22.9 million in tax dollars - generated from a local sales tax, plus a portion of State-collected income taxes and sales taxes.
Thinking about Oro Valley’s services and amenities, do you agree or disagree that "you are getting your money’s worth for your tax dollars"?
Any other comments, suggestions or concerns about the Town’s budget limit or priorities for next fiscal year?
