[ARCHIVED] Explanation of Permanent Base Option, Ballot Proposition 407

Here is an informational flyer for Show Low voters regarding Proposition 407 (a city proposition appearing on the August 30 primary election ballot). It asks voters to consider a permanent adjustment to the state-imposed spending limit, which was established in 1980 based on Show Low’s 1980 expenditures and 1978 population figures. This adjustment is very similar to the Home Rule option that gives the Council local control of the city’s finances. And, like the Home Rule option, there is no impact to the city’s existing taxes or revenues. The difference is that instead of voting for a temporary Home Rule adjustment every four years, the permanent base option would mean not having another Home Rule election for another 20, 30, or more years.
