The Flagstaff Citizens’ Transportation Tax Commission applications are currently being accepted. To submit or download an application visit the City of Flagstaff Boards and Commissions website at www.flagstaff.az.gov/bc.
In 2000 the City’s transaction privilege taxes for the purpose of transportation was authorized and is scheduled to sunset on June 30, 2020. On July 5, 2017 City Council approved creating a Flagstaff Citizens’ Transportation Tax Commission to provide recommendations to the Council with respect to the possible renewal of the transportation tax. The new Citizen’s commission of 15 voting members will serve without compensations from approximately September 2017 through March 2018. The commission will meet with City staff and relevant boards and commissions to review and discuss transportation issues and/or Regional Transportation Plan and transportation-related policy documents.
We are looking to create a citizen commission of independent citizens with diverse backgrounds that reside within city limits to establish this Flagstaff Citizens' Transportation Tax Commission. This is a temporary, advisory board to make recommendations to the City Council with respect to the possible renewal of the transportation tax at the November 2018 general election, or with respect to any other recommended tax rate to fund public transportation projects.
The Flagstaff Citizens' Transportation Tax Commission application deadline is August 23, 2017. Details of this commission are available on the city website in the Flagstaff City Code, Title 2, Boards and Commissions in Chapter 2-24 (Ordinance No. 2017-25.) For more information contact the Deputy City Clerk Stacy Saltzburg at (928) 213-2077 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
