Bits and Pieces

Appellate Court Denies Stay

The Arizona Appellate Court denied TOOTHINOV.ORG's request for a stay of the Town Of Oro Valley's purchase of the El Conquistador Country Club. The basis of the denial was that the case will be heard by March 4, which is before the town's sworn statement that the deal can not be closed before mid March.

Oro Valley Seeking Designer For El Conquistador Country Club Clubhouse Conversion

According to an article published in Arizona Builders Exchange, Oro Valley has issued a request for proposal for design services to convert the El Conquistador Country Club clubhouse
"The selected firm will be expected to design upgrades, renovations and alterations, as well as any other design services for town facilities. Those services could include site design, ADA and code compliance, civil, mechanical, structural, electrical, communications, landscape, planning, energy and water efficiency, cost estimating and administration of the construction contract".
Increased Sales Tax Starts March 1

Wednesday, the Oro Valley Town Council discussed possibly suspending the sales tax increase to support the community center since the purchase of the El Conquistador Country Club may be delayed. They made no change. So, the increased sales tax starts March 1. The town will hold the money for use if and when a community center comes to fruition.
