New Liaison Assignments Delayed To January 1, 2020

Implementation delayed
Last night, the Oro Valley Town Council voted 4-3 to make the new liaison council assignments effective January 1, 2020.  Mayor Winfield had proposed that these assignments be effective immediately.  Council Member Jones-Ivey voted with Council Members Pina, Rodman and Solomon to delay the assignments.

Jones-Ivey confused
Jones-Ivey was confused throughout the 45 minute discussion of this motion. At one point, Council reconsidered the vote so that she could make sure she understood for what she was voting.

Not the first time
This is the second time Joyce-Ivey cast a critical vote in agreement with the minority members of council. The other was her insistence that bonding for golf course improvements be considered among the financial alternatives for financing course and community center improvements.
