Shane Dille, Nogales City Manager, says the City is submitting a proposal for voter approval this November that would help City officials get through a challenging fiscal year. Dille says if the “Home Rule” option is approved it will help maintain library, fire, police, ambulance, parks & rec, streets He says the State sets spending limits on municipalities unless voters “opt out,” using a formula that isn’t realistic. Home Rule lets municipalities set their own budget. He says if the measure fails, the City will have to make further budget cuts. Voters approved a similar measure in 2002.
