Cities and Towns Create Pension Reform Task Force

PHOENIX (June 24, 2014) – The rapidly rising costs of pensions for public employees - particularly those in police and fire service - are of great concern to city and town leaders and the taxpayers they represent. The cost of pensions and the long-term liability associated with them have become major components of municipal budgets.

The League of Arizona Cities and Towns has a vital interest in carefully examining the various proposals regarding reform of the Arizona Public Safety Personnel Retirement System (PSPRS). Cities and towns comprise more PSPRS employees than any other unit of government. Read the entire press release here.


City and Town Budgets: Your Input Matters!

City and Town Budgets: Your Input Matters!
Every year by mid-July, each of our Arizona cities and towns are required by law to adopt a balanced budget that is open to citizen input and participation.

Every resident can have a voice in deciding what the budget will be spent on and how it will be paid for in the months before it is adopted.

To help ensure your city or town residents understand the budget process and to foster increased resident participation, AZ Cities @ Work presents Your Input Matters!, a short and fun video primer on the city and town budget process, demonstrating why it is important for residents to get involved.
