For quite some time, golf has been a topic of great interest and discussion in our community, as staff and Council have worked to assess needs and options. Now that Council has made some important decisions about golf operations, and a plan is in place, I wanted to take a moment to summarize this process and outline what our residents can expect in the coming months and years.

July 1 marks the beginning of the fiscal year for the Town of Oro Valley and local governments across Arizona. Preparing for this annual reset is a deliberative process that lasts more than six months and culminates with adoption of the annual budget by your Town Council. The FY 2019-20 adopted budget totals just over $111 million and supports the quality services and amenities that residents have come to expect, ensuring the continuation of our outstanding quality of life here in Oro Valley.

The Town of Oro Valley’s fiscal year is coming to a close next Saturday, June 30, and with it, some significant accomplishments achieved for the community. Major capital projects were completed on-time and under budget, including Lambert Lane widening and safety improvements, two additional multi-sport fields and lighting at Naranja Park and several Water Utility well upgrades.

I could hardly believe it when I realized a full year has already gone by since I began my role as Oro Valley’s assistant town manager. Time really flies in our active and engaged town. From special events to issues that matter to our residents, there is always so much going on within our local government and the community at large. I am grateful to serve in this community, and I would like to share with you some thoughts on how much I have enjoyed assisting in leading this organization.
