Teresa Ramirez, City of Nogales Finance Director, says the State of Arizona imposes a formula-based budget spending limit on Arizona cities and towns, including the City of Nogales. She says this formula based spending limit does not take into consideration the actual cost of services and programs provided to citizens by each city or town. She says voters in the election November 2 will be asked to approve the local alternative expenditure option, or “home rule” to help the City meet a budget shortfall.
