Council approved 2023 Budget spending level of $148 million for 2023 on June 1
The Oro Valley Town Council approved a budget spending limitation of approximately $148 million for fiscal year 2023. They did so at the June 1 Town Council meeting. The discussion around the subject of the budget became contentious at times among some members of Council. We didn't report the details on this to you because frankly, we didn't think it rose to the level of civility that we expect from our council. The details of the budget will be discussed at the June 15th council meeting.  We hope that the contentiousness will end and that the serious business of approving the budget will be the focus of this session.
