Minimum Wage Vote Tonight

Will the Flagstaff City Council vote to join a lawsuit allowing the city to set a higher minimum wage? Will this eventually lead to Flagstaff joining cities like LA and Seattle with a $15 minimum wage? The outcome may have serious economic consequences for Flagstaff. 

Your comments and presence is requested TODAY, Tuesday, June 2nd at 6:00PM, Flagstaff City Hall. If you can’t make it in person you can contact council at

Also on the agenda tonight

…On Tuesday I submitted formal written request to reconsider last weeks vote donating land to the VA. It has come to my attention that the amendments proposed by Councilwoman Putzova will not be accepted by the VA and that this projects status is in jeopardy. I will propose a new more practical resolution that gives staff ample room to negotiate with the VA and come up with a course of action that gets this Veterans Home built ASAP.

  1. Hi Jeff, Can you tell me about what time the vote will be on minimum wage. I want to be there but I have another commitment. I can change time on other commitment if you have some idea of the time. Trudy Wieber Date: Tue, 2 Jun 2015 14:09:54 +0000 To:

    1. Trudy,
      This is the third item on tonight’s 6:00 PM agenda. So I’m guessing, and it’s just a guess, that we’ll get to this by around 7:00PM.
