Councilman Oravits Weekly Update


BAN ON PLASTIC BAGS
Are you in favor of banning single use plastic bags in Flagstaff?

Are you in favor of doing nothing at all? Or perhaps some middle ground such as increased education and better recycling options?

I would appreciate your input.

The City Council will be hearing this Tuesday, January 13th at 6:00PM.

Thoughts can be emailed to council@flagstaffaz.gov

INAUGURATION
Monday I traveled to Phoenix to the inauguration of Governor Doug Ducey. I look forward to working with the state leadership to advance Flagstaff’s goals.

TAX OPPOSITION
At Tuesdays councils meeting I opposed a proposed tax on empty buildings. An idea was floated to tax empty and blighted buildings as an incentive to fix them up and occupy them. This was a bad idea and fortunately a majority of council agrred. This tax idea is dead!

COUNCIL TO DONATE CITY LAND FOR VA HOME IN FLAGSTAFF

At Tuesday’s meeting council majority gave direction to staff to donate land on McMillan Mesa for a VA Home!

I am 100% in support of this. The closest VA home is in Phoenix and that’s unacceptable . Thanks to all of our Veterans for serving our Nation.
