I WANT TO HEAR YOUR THOUGHTS…
Do you want to see Flagstaff’s streets repaired?
Are you willing to support a temporary sales tax increase if its dedicated to street repairs, sunsets and ongoing maintenance comes from our existing budget (along with no increase in property taxes)?
I’ve fought hard for the past two years to get more funding to our streets. Misplaced spending priorities among other factors got us in this situation. I’m committed to finding solutions to fix our streets and keep them in good repair going forward.
Here is a couple articles I was featured in this week regarding our streets and plans to fix them. Let me know your thoughts.
“I’m very hesitant to go to the voters to say, ‘Yes and we want a tax for maintenance.’ Because a lot of folks already say ‘I already pay a tax. I already have a high sales tax.’” Oravits said. “I think we should find that within the existing budget.”
“It will be imperative that this Council and future Councils maintain the streets,” Oravits said.
