The voters of the Town of Superior in 2003 adopted an alternative expenditure limitation ‑ home rule option. The purpose of this election is for the continued use of the alternative expenditure limitation.
Pursuant to A.R.S. §41‑563.01, the Town Council of Superior voted to approve the proposed alternative expenditure limitation ‑ home rule option at its Special Meeting on March 12, 2020. The vote for approval was Five (5) For and None (0) Against.
At the primary election to be held on August 4, 2020, the voters of the Town of Superior will vote on the question of an alternative expenditure limitation ‑ home rule option.
With voter approval, the town shall be limited to the expenditure of estimated available revenues whether such expenditures are less than or exceed the State imposed limit. As an example, in 2021-2022, the state-imposed limitation plus applicable constitutional exclusions will allow expenditures of $1,963,744.00. Under the proposed alternative expenditure limitation, we estimate expenditures of $7,773,486.00.
If the voters approve, the additional expenditure authority will be used for all local budgetary purposes including Administration, Street/Building Maintenance, Public Safety, Sewer/Refuse Service, Capital and Special Projects. Revenues received from federal, state and local sources will be used to fund such expenditures. The town property tax shall be limited to the amount prescribed in the Arizona State Constitution.
By order of the Town Council of Superior, Arizona
