Chino Valley in Brief: Chino Valley Unified School District proposes tax increase
Chino Valley Unified School District proposes tax increase
The Chino Valley Unified School District is proposing an increase in its primary property tax levy of $85,000.
There will be a public hearing on the proposed tax increase at 5 p.m. July 2 at the Chino Valley Unified School District’s board room, 650 E. Center St., Chino Valley.
The amount proposed would cause CVUSD primary property taxes on a $100,000 home to be $4.31. Without the tax increase, total taxes owed would have been zero. The proposed amounts are above the qualifying tax levies as prescribed by state law. The increase is exclusive of any changes that may occur from property tax levies for voter approved bonded indebtedness or budget and tax overrides.

VA public hearing on June 26
Northern Arizona VA Health Care System has scheduled a public hearing for 3 p.m. Wednesday, June 26, in the theater, Bldg. 15, at the main VA hospital in Prescott to present a proposal on an Enhanced-Use Lease (EUL) at NAVAHCS.
This EUL would enable the VA to improve its ability to continue providing benefits and services to veterans and their families through the renovation of six historic quarters (buildings 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10) and approximately three acres of adjacent land on the southwestern portion of the campus.
This co-location of housing on the campus would enable veterans greater access to services. The VA would like to elicit comments from veterans and other interested parties regarding plans to have supportive housing on the campus.
The public is invited to attend the hearing and is encouraged to submit written comments in advance of the hearing to Mary Dillinger, Public Affairs, Northern Arizona VA Health Care System 500 N. Highway 89, Prescott, AZ 86313 or call 928-717-7587.
