The new property tax rate -- $3.83 is nearly four cents lower than last year’s $3.86.9. Pinal County joins four other Arizona counties to offer their taxpayers a break this fiscal year.

“This is a target for us in our Strategic Plan,” stated Chairman Todd House. “I would like to see it go even lower next year and the following year.”

Pinal County Town Hall’s primary sponsor each year is the Pinal County Board of Supervisors. Supervisor Anthony Smith, Dist. 4, represents the Board on the Pinal County Town Hall Advisory Committee. The Advisory Committee is composed of representatives from throughout Pinal County who meet monthly to work out details for the event. During this year’s Town Hall, attendees will hear from large and small business owners, a mayor, and a Pinal County supervisor on how a disgruntled citizen may be calmed (maybe!). We will also hear from an American Airlines’ government liaison who has lots of interesting stories to share!

We strongly advise to potential solar customers to do your due diligence when it comes to choosing a company to deal with.   more...

These reasons were the predominant factors which created the Pony Express in 1860. For 19 months, before the invention of the telegraph, 127 riders, averaging about 75 miles per day, delivered mail, messages and newspapers to all points between St. Joseph, Missouri and San Francisco.
