Scottsdale Bond Package Controversy
Voters in Scottsdale will be asked to approve a bond package of over nine million dollars on Election Day. Property owners would pay an additional eleven cents for each hundred dollars of the assessed value of their home. That’s another $275 for the year on a $250,000 home – not an obscene amount of money, except when you consider the amount of taxes already paid in Scottsdale. The bonds would go to parks, transportation, technology, paving, fire, and police. The city is already in debt with over six hundred million dollars in bonds, and half are paid with sales taxes and the other half property taxes.
Many residents are concerned about the particular projects that are being considered under these bonds. You can read more about that here. At least one councilman is opposed to the bond issue.
