Yuma City Council adopts property tax levy

A major tax change and a new commission

YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - Major changes coming to the City of Yuma, adjustments that took a bit of teamwork and compromises. 

“And its just one of the ways that the City of Yuma is going to be reaching out to the public to seek that input," Erin Eurek, Senior Project Manager at Kimley-Horn.

Erin Eurek worked closely with the city to get the commission up and running 

The Yuma City Council approved to establish the Americans with Disabilities Act, the commission would consist of seven members appointed by the mayor and city council. 

One local, Reyna Rascon works closely with individuals with special needs and credits the city council for making an effort.

“it’s a really good thing that they are putting this together. I believe that all people with disabilities should have these resources available to them," said Reyna Rascon, a Yuma local.

The city council also approved the city’s property tax levy which would be $2.13 cents for every $100 of property value.

“So they had that long discussion at that last meeting and I think they came up with a decent compromise where they went halfway sp we didn’t go 4 percent we went 2 percent so I think it a good compromise," said Jay Simonton, city administrator.

The next city council meeting is scheduled for August 16.
