Truth in Taxation Hearing Notice of Property Tax Increasehttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/budget-and-research/3110Budget & Research5/24/2024 3:00:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/3110/Phoenix City Hall.pngTruth in Taxation Hearing Notice of Property Tax Increase<div class="ExternalClass90890A8C2D23431CB2A2ED63C2A90F26"><html> <p> <strong>​Tax Notice Explained</strong> <strong> </strong> </p> <p>The accompanying Truth in Taxation notice is 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 2024-25 of $1.2658 per $100 of assessed valuation is reduced from its 2023-24 rate of $1.2851 per $100 of assessed valuation. However, overall increases in assessed valuation result in a 2% 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 2024-25 will be unchanged from its 2023-24 rate of $0.8141 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>Truth in Taxation notice publication dates and locations: </p> <p>The Record Reporter – May 24, 2024 and June 3, 2024. </p> <p>Additionally included in published estimates of revenues and expenses: </p> <p>The Record Reporter – June 10, 2024. </p> <p> <strong>Truth in Taxation Hearing Notice of Tax Increase</strong> <strong> </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 $4,177,285 or 2.00%. </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 $126.58 (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 $124.10. </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 12, 2024, at 2:30 p.m. at the City of Phoenix Council Chambers, 200 W. Jefferson St​<span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;">​</span></p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/budgetNewsbudget-and-researchPhoenix City HallBudgetAdam Waltz602-781-1334602-534-6648adam.waltz@phoenix.govhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/MediaContact/Attachments/14/Adam_Waltz.jpgcityofphoenixaz

 

 

Phoenix Parks Partners with IMPACT Melanoma to Bring Awareness to Skin Cancerhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/parks-and-recreation/3141Parks and Recreation6/21/2024 6:00:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/3141/El-Oso-Sunscreen-Dispenser.jpgPhoenix Parks Partners with IMPACT Melanoma to Bring Awareness to Skin Cancer<div class="ExternalClass308CA226358745318F801EEEA515EEE4"><html> <p>​The City of Phoenix Parks and Recreation Department is proud to announce a partnership with IMPACT Melanoma, a non-profit organization dedicated to preventing skin cancer. This collaboration aims to enhance sun safety practices at various splash pad locations across the City by providing free sunscreen to park visitors.<br></p> <p>The decision to initiate this partnership comes as a response to the pressing need for increased awareness and prevention of skin cancer, particularly melanoma, which poses a significant health risk in Arizona's sunny climate. According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 100,640 individuals in the United States will be diagnosed with melanoma in 2024 alone.</p> <p>"Our desert environment exposes us to intense UV radiation, making sun protection a critical aspect of public health," said Phoenix Parks and Recreation Department Cynthia Aguilar. "By joining forces with IMPACT Melanoma, we are taking proactive steps to ensure the well-being of our community members and promote sun-safe behaviors."</p> <p>“IMPACT Melanoma is thrilled to partner with Phoenix Parks and Recreation to share melanoma prevention education and provide free sunscreen at neighborhood splash pads," said IMPACT Melanoma Executive Director Deb Girard.</p> <p>Under this partnership, IMPACT Melanoma will supply six portable sunscreen dispensers to be strategically placed at select splash pad locations throughout the City. These dispensers will be regularly maintained and refilled with sunscreen throughout the 2024 splash pad season, which runs from May 25 to October 1.</p> <p>The six splash pad sites participating in this initiative include:</p> <ul> <li>Altadena Park - 3711 E. Altadena Ave.</li> <li>Margaret T. Hance Park – 67 W. Culver St.</li> <li>El Oso Park - 3451 N. 75th Ave.</li> <li>Mariposa Park - 3150 W. Morten Ave.</li> <li>Nuestro Park - 1433 S. 9th St.</li> <li>Trailside Point Park - 7215 W. Vineyard Rd.</li> </ul> <p>The partnership agreement was unanimously approved by the Parks and Recreation Board, reflecting the collective dedication to safeguarding public health and promoting sun safety practices. As summer approaches, this collaborative effort stands as a testament to the City's commitment to the well-being of its residents.​<br></p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/parksNews
Phoenix Fire Department New Heat Illness Treatment Toolhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/fire/3140Fire6/20/2024 8:20:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/3140/BK3A9673-Enhanced-NR.jpghttps://youtu.be/V_6ygBrd5GwPhoenix Fire Department New Heat Illness Treatment Tool<div class="ExternalClassC7629A4172BB4CAEAC249852214AD7CD"><html> <p>​​​<span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;">This summer, the Phoenix Fire Department has introduced a new and innovative approach to treating heat victims: Cold Water Immersion. These specialized ice bags are being used to rapidly cool down individuals suffering from extreme heat-related illnesses, offering a quick and effective method to manage the often-dangerous effects of extreme heat.</span></p> <p>The cold-water immersion is used when a patient's temperature surpasses 104 degrees and they present with altered mental status. Once the patient is fully immersed in the ice, firefighter-paramedics constantly reevaluate vital signs including their temperature. The patient is removed from the bag when their temperature drops to 101 degrees. </p> <p>Since May 1st, every response vehicle within the Phoenix Fire Department has been outfitted with the equipment and necessary tools to integrate this method into standard protocol for dealing with heat-related emergencies. Training for the proper application and monitoring of this method has been provided to ensure effectiveness and safety to all 1,800 Phoenix Firefighters.</p> <p>At the beginning of May, one bag a week was used on average. Now nearing the end of June, the bags are used roughly three times a day. </p> <p>“This is a collaborative effort," Captain Rob McDade added. “We've worked with local E.R.'s, local doctors, our own medical director, our EMS department – we looked at how can we help those that we serve having critical heat emergencies?"</p> <p>As the excessive heat becomes more frequent and intense, this simple yet effective measure plays a crucial role in saving lives and enhancing emergency response capabilities. </p> <p>And the impact has already been seen. </p> <p>Battalion Chief Austin Moreland works within the Emergency Medical Services section and helped deploy this new program and training. He said, “We've already seen people who were extremely hot this year, who last year they might not have made it – and because of these efforts this year, they're leaving the hospital with no deficits."​<br></p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/fireVideo
