Globe-Miami Cares Project
A meeting was held between Mayor Dalley, Steve Ravenkamp from the Globe Rotary Club, and myself. The meeting was to establish a relief fund for the hurricane victims. The result was an account that was set up through the Pinal Mountain Lions Foundation (Globe Rotary Club), a 501c3 for distribution to the victims in those areas. If you wish to donate, make checks payable to the United Fund of Globe-Miami, P.O. Box 2160, Globe, Az. 85502. You can also donate online at azgives.org/unitedfundofglobemiami. Make sure to document it as Globe-Miami Cares. The United Fund will then write a check to the Pinal Mountain Lions Foundation.
Joint Council Meeting
The second joint Council meeting between the City of Globe and the Town of Miami was held on September 20th at Besh Ba Gowah. The items of discussion were blight mitigation, economic development, Gear Up program, libraries, water, wastewater, transportation, Public Safety Retirement, and community events. It is great to sit in the same room with both Councils present and discuss common issues and share ideas.
The City Council approved the demolition of three structures in Globe as recommended by our Code Enforcement Specialist, Michelle Yerkovich. The three structures are not only dilapidated, but are now a safety hazard to the community. After demolition of the structures, the city will place a lien on these properties so that we are able to recover our costs. We continue to see a tremendous amount of change as the city continues to deal with blight and the efforts to clean up our city.
15K Cap Removed
On the September 26th City Council meeting, the 15K cap was rescinded by a 5 to 2 vote. This resolution was implemented in 2011 to help boost the economy by not charging any city sales tax above $15,000.00 on a single retail item purchase.
