Tucson Water will host the final two town halls to present three options for proposed fiscal year 2014 water rates and fees. The options have been recommended by the Citizens Water Advisory Committee (CWAC).

The proposed rate changes reflect an estimated increase from $2.91 to $3.68 in the monthly water bill for the average residential customer in a single family home. Nearly 90% of Tucson Water customers are residential accounts.

The town halls start at 5:30 p.m. The presentation on rates, fees and options begins at 5:45 p.m. City staff and CWAC members will be available for questions.

● Tuesday, May 14 - Randolph Regional Center Mesquite Room, 200 S.

Alvernon Way

● Wednesday, May 15 - William M. Clements Recreation Center, 8155

E. Poinciana Dr.

“These town halls provide an opportunity for our customers to learn about the financial operations of our utility,” said Alan Forrest, Tucson Water Director. “Customers also provide input that Mayor and Council may consider in making their decision.”

CWAC annually reviews the revenue requirements of the water system and review Tucson Water budget proposals in order to develop rate and fee recommendations. Its members are appointed by the Mayor and Council and the City Manager’s Office.

A public hearing is scheduled during the Tuesday, May 21, Mayor and Council meeting. Following the hearing, Mayor and Council are expected to vote on adopting a new water rate schedule.

More information, including the rates presentation and proposed and current rate schedules, is post on Tucson Water’s website at tucsonaz.gov/water or available by calling (520) 791-4331.

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
