Face Coverings Now Required in the City of Phoenixhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/article/1352Articles and Features6/19/2020 7:00:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/1352/Newsroom_Mask.jpgFace Coverings Now Required in the City of Phoenix<div class="ExternalClassC7DF4F33AD5441D9832017E92041BACA"><html> <p> <strong>Update: <em>The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors issued an order for all of Maricopa County that includes persons over the age of two to wear face coverings in public. The County Order does apply to Phoenix and amends the age requirement of the Phoenix declaration. </em></strong></p> <p>On June 19, 2020, Mayor Kate Gallego and the members of the Phoenix City Council, in a vote of 7 to 2, ordered the wearing of face coverings in the city of Phoenix effective Saturday, June 20, 2020. </p> <p>“Community spread is accelerating in Arizona at speeds that should concern everyone," says Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego. “It will take the entire community coming together to protect all who live, work and play in our city.  Scientists say wearing a simple face covering is something we must do to slow the spread – and Phoenix is listening."</p> <p>On June 17, 2020, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey issued an executive order providing that Arizona cities may adopt policies regarding face coverings in public for the purpose of mitigating the spread of COVID-19. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Arizona Department of Public Health recommend wearing face coverings when interacting with others outside the home, especially when many people are present, to prevent spreading COVID-19.</p> <p>According to the CDC, one method of transmission of the virus is through respiratory droplets that people expel when they breathe, cough, or sneeze. People who are asymptomatic, or have mild symptoms, can still be contagious.  </p> <p>The city of Phoenix finds that wearing a face covering, in combination with physical distancing of six feet, and frequent hand-washing, may reduce the risk of spreading the COVID-19 virus when in public and engaged in necessary activities.</p> <p>The face-covering requirement applies to all people two years of age and older [amended by County Order] in the city of Phoenix, when they leave their home or residence and are within six feet of another person who is not a family member or member of their household. There are exceptions for those who should not wear a face covering due to a medical or mental health condition, for those whose religious beliefs prevent them from wearing a face covering, for restaurant patrons while they are eating, among others. Please see the city's Face Covering Fact Sheet for specific requirements at phoenix.gov.  </p> </html></div>NewsarticleArticle
Truth in Taxation Notice Explainedhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/article/1301Articles and Features6/1/2020 6:00:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/1301/Newsroom_Taxation.jpgTruth in Taxation Notice Explained<div class="ExternalClass41CEFB833EE346609777288818740576"><html> <p>​The City of Phoenix published the Truth in Taxation notice below as required by state law. The required notice addresses the city's primary property tax, which supports the General Fund services such as police and fire, parks and recreation, libraries and senior and community centers,</p> <p>The city of Phoenix's proposed primary property tax rate for 2020-21 of $1.3055 per $100 of assessed valuation is unchanged from its 2019-20 rate. However, overall increases in assessed valuation result in a 3% increase in primary property taxes for the average city of Phoenix property owner. Individual experiences may differ based on unique property variances.</p> <p>State law requires the notice below any time the average primary property tax bill increases, even if the primary property tax rate is reduced.</p> <p>The Truth in Taxation notice prescribed by state law does not address the city's secondary property tax. The city's secondary property tax rate for 2020-21 will remain constant at $0.8241 per $100 of assessed valuation. Secondary property taxes pay the bonded debt service for facilities like libraries, police and fire stations, storm drains and parks.</p> <p>For more information, call 602-262-4800, or visit Phoenix.gov/budget.</p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <strong>TRUTH IN TAXATION HEARING NOTICE OF TAX INCREASE</strong> </p> <p>In compliance with section 42-17107, Arizona Revised Statutes, the city of Phoenix is notifying its property taxpayers of the city of Phoenix's intention to raise its primary property taxes over last year's level.  The city of Phoenix is proposing an increase in primary property taxes of $5,276,888 or 3.0 percent.</p> <p>For example, the proposed tax increase will cause the city of Phoenix's primary property taxes on a $100,000 home to be $130.55 (total proposed taxes including the tax increase). Without the proposed tax increase, the total taxes that would be owed on a $100,000 home would have been $126.76.</p> <p>The proposed increase is exclusive of increased primary property taxes received from new construction.  The increase is also exclusive of any changes that may occur from property tax levies for voter approved bonded indebtedness or budget and tax overrides.</p> <p>All interested citizens are invited to attend the public hearing on the tax increase that is scheduled to be held June 17, 2020 at 2:30 p.m. at the city of Phoenix Council Chambers, 200 W. Jefferson St.</p> </html></div>NewsarticleArticle

The respite center will provide shelter on excessive heat days to our most vulnerable residents. On these days, buses will begin picking up those experiencing homelessness near the Human Services Campus at 9 a.m. along Jefferson St., at 9th and 12th avenues. The buses will stop every hour to transport individuals with a valid Human Services Campus identification card to the PHX Convention Center to escape the heat.</p> <p>The area at the PHX Convention Center will have tables and chairs spaced for television viewing and meals. The city is partnering with St. Vincent de Paul to provide both lunch and dinner, while ensuring those seeking refuge have access to water. No personal belongings will be allowed inside the PHX Convention Center per CDC recommendations to prevent the spread COVID-19. All personal items will be left at the Human Services Campus or the Maricopa County COVID-19 lots where residents will be returned in the late evening hours. PHX Convention Center staff will be doing ongoing cleanings of the area and facilities being used for the respite to ensure the safety of both the residents and City staff. Each night when the respite area is closed down, a deep cleaning of the facilities will occur ensuring CDC guidelines are being met to slow the spread of COVID-19.</p> <p>Additionally, several community partners are continuing to outreach and support those living on the streets during this excessively hot weekend. The Salvation Army has opened 12 heat relief stations across metro Phoenix. St. Vincent de Paul, housed at the Human Services Campus, will open their doors during the heat of the day to clients of the campus. Their heat relief center will allow vaccinated pets. Finally, the Justa Center for senior citizens who are homeless, also located near the Human Services Campus, will operate an air-conditioned tent respite and hydration center during the hot days in the parking lot of their facility for their clients. ​<br></p> <p> <br> </p> </html></div>NewsarticleArticle
