Town Council Talks About Property Taxes Thursday


Money matters dominate this week's council meeting.

At the Aug. 15 meeting, the council will take action on property taxes, several grant applications and spending money.

The agenda includes:

An ordinance to levy 28.5 cents per $100 of assessed valuation for the 2002-2003 budget.

Accepting a $3,010 increase in a $345,802 grant from the Federal Aviation Administration which had been used for wildlife fencing, seal coating the pavement and a tractor for maintenance at the airport, and accepting up to another $150,000 from the FAA for a taxiway improvement project.

Requests to: apply for state housing funds; spend $20,000 for groundwater exploration on the Doll Baby Ranch; and transfer $7,200 from the contingency fund to the Payson Womans Club to cover the excess costs of bringing its building up to standard.

In other business the council will be considering agreements with: Rim Living Limited Company for construction of East Main Street improvements, which will connect Main to Ponderosa St. and the Payson Regional Medical Center; and Gila County for continuation of services under the Gila County Community Action Program for 2002-2003.

The council also is being asked for a recommendation to the Arizona Department of Liquor Licenses and Control to approve the liquor license for the Chili's Grill and Bar scheduled to open in Payson in October.
