dsc_0606

Voters in the Town of Paradise Valley have voted in favor of increasing the town’s base expenditure limit during the Nov. 8 general election, according to unofficial results.

According to the Maricopa County Recorder website, about 65 percent of the votes went in favor of Prop. 499, increasing the base expenditure limit by about $3.5 million adjusted each future year for population and inflation growth since 1979-80.

The increase of the base expenditure limit would increase the town’s budget by $14 million. This would bring the town’s budget to about $40 million.

With that increase, the publicity pamphlet states the town will use “the additional expenditure authority for any local budgetary purposes including police, fire, wastewater, alarm services, public works, community development, courts, attorneys and administration.”
