SIGNAL PEAK — The Central Arizona College Governing board voted to cut its property increase down to 20 percent Tuesday afternoon during a special meeting held in the Pence Center on the college’s Signal Peak Campus.
Last month the board gave approval to a $105 million budget that included a property tax increase of close to 85 cents per $100 of assessed valuation, or nearly a 45 percent increase. That increase now has been cut down to a 20 percent increase.
A number of people spoke at Tuesday’s meeting before the board took its vote. There has been vocal opposition to the tax increase including a recall effort directed at the four board members who voted for it by a committee called Citizens for Fair Taxation.
More information on the meeting will appear in Wednesday’s print edition of the Casa Grande Dispatch and in the eEdition online. To subscribe call 520-423-8685 from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
