Marana and the police officers’ union associated with the town have reached an employment agreement.

Last week, the town council unanimously approved several changes to the contracts for members of the Marana Police Officers Association.

The changes include providing a 50 percent sick-leave payout for families of deceased officers, a 5 percent pay increase per hour for a dispatcher or patrol officer who works a first-line supervisory shift, and the establishment of an eight-step pay plan for dispatchers, bringing them in line with the pay plan of other department employees.

“We think we’ve come up with a good document,” said Bill Durfus, president of the MPOA. “A document that others will continue to build on for years on.”

Town officials said they were pleased with the results of negotiations with the police union.

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.
