Pursuant to A.R.S. § 41-563.01, the Town Council of Tusayan voted to approve the proposed alternative expenditure limitation – home rule option at its special meeting on May 13, 2020. The vote for approval was five For and none Against.
At the general election to be held on November 3, 2020, the voters of the Town of Tusayan will vote on the question of an alternative expenditure limitation – home rule option.
With voter approval, the Town shall be limited to the expenditure of estimated available revenues whether such expenditures are less than or exceed the State imposed limit. As an example, in 2021-2022, the state-imposed limitation plus applicable constitutional exclusions will allow expenditures of $8,656,874. Under the proposed alternative expenditure limitation, we estimate expenditures of $15,302,260.
If the voters approve, the additional expenditure authority will be used for all local budgetary purposes including General Government, Public Safety, Public Works, Planning & Development, Utilities, Cultural and Recreational, and Capital Improvements. Revenues received from federal, state, and local sources will be used to fund such expenditures.
By order of the Town Council of Tusayan, Arizona.
