Scottsdale’s growing infrastructure needs and options to pay for them will be the topic of a City Council work study session Tuesday, March 27.
The list of the city’s capital needs includes street improvements, park renovations, fire and police facility modernization, technology systems, flood control and storm drainage. The most pressing needs as identified by the City Council Capital Improvement Subcommittee totals about $350 million.
At the March 27 meeting, the City Council will discuss funding options including general obligation bonds, sales tax and an increase in the city’s storm water fee. Some of those options would require a public vote.
The meeting takes place at 4 p.m. in the City Hall Kiva, 3939 N. Drinkwater Blvd. It will also be aired on Scottsdale Video Network (Cox cable channel 11/1011) and live-streamed on the city’s website.
