    ATTEND A TOWN HALL ON PROPOSED TAX INCREASE FOR TUCSON’S FUTURE – As part of an ongoing discussion regarding Tucson’s future, the City of Tucson is holding a series of town halls where the public can get information, provide input, and have questions answered about a possible sales tax question that could go to City voters in May 2017. The City’s proposal is tentatively for a half-cent City sales tax increase to fund equipment and facilities for the Tucson Police and Tucson Fire departments and to continue the Tucson Department of Transportation’s Road Recovery program to repair major and neighborhood streets. The first town hall will be held tomorrow at 5:30 p.m. at the William M. Clements Center, 8155 E. Poinciana Drive. Another town hall will be held this Thursday at 5:30 p.m. at the Ward 6 Office, 3202 E. 1st St. The final meeting will be next Monday at 5:30 p.m. at El Pueblo Senior Center, 101 W. Irvington Road.
