The Winslow City Council met Aug. 8 to set the property tax levy to raise a total of $342,334 with an assessment of $1.1934 per $100 in assessed valuation. This is an increase over last year’s rate of 98.80 cents per $100. The ordinance setting the tax rate was passed on an emergency basis.
In other business the council heard that the Arizona League of Cities and Towns has narrowed the list of candidates for the vacant city manager position from 46 to nine. The council lowered the list to five, and is asking the League of Cities and Towns to doublecheck that those five are still interested in applying for the position and to do background checks on those candidates.
