Truth in Taxation Explainedhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/finance/1928Finance6/1/2021 6:00:00 PMTruth in Taxation Explained<div class="ExternalClass009EBABCEF8D4D65819739815506057C"><html> <p></p>The city of Phoenix publishes 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.<br><br>The city of Phoenix's proposed primary property tax rate for 2021-22 of $1.3055 per $100 of assessed valuation is unchanged from its 2020-21 rate. However, overall increases in assessed valuation result in a 4% increase in primary property taxes for the average city of Phoenix property owner. Individual experiences may differ based on unique property variances.<br><br>State law requires the notice below any time the average primary property tax bill increases, even if the primary property tax rate is reduced.<br><br>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 2021-22 will be reduced by one cent from $0.8241 to $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.<br><br>For more information, call 602-262-4800, or visit phoenix.gov/budget.<br><br> <br><strong>TRUTH IN TAXATION HEARING NOTICE OF TAX INCREASE</strong><br><br>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 $7,444,842 or 4.0 percent.<br><br>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 $125.52.<br><br>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.<br><br>All interested citizens are invited to attend the public hearing on the tax increase that is scheduled to be held June 16, 2021 at 2:30 p.m. at the city of Phoenix Council Chambers, 200 W. Jefferson St.<br><br><p style="text-align:justify;">Published 6/1/21 & 6/8/21​<br></p></html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/financeNewsfinanceFinanceFinanceMichael Hammett, Int.

Critical Incident Briefing: September 10, 2021 7th Avenue and Willetta Streethttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/police/2080Police9/24/2021 10:03:00 PMhttps://youtu.be/CJV3YUqEuuICritical Incident Briefing: September 10, 2021 7th Avenue and Willetta Street<div class="ExternalClass1FB58C88A1744D05BCB6F52B856D3DB3"><html> <p></p>WARNING: The attached video may contain strong language as well as graphic images which may be disturbing to some people. Viewer discretion is advised. <br> <br>The Phoenix Police Department released a Critical Incident Briefing (CIB) video that includes audio, visuals and information related to a death investigation that occurred after a man was detained by police on September 10, 2021, near 7th Avenue and Willetta Street.<br><br>The incident began when Phoenix police received multiple reports of a male walking naked in the street. <br><br>The man in this incident was later identified as 28-year-old Jessee Rickman. <br><br> “…he was in the, the median, like the middle lane, uh, just walking down the street completely naked," reported one 9-1-1 caller. <br><br>When officers first arrived, they saw the Rickman in the middle of the road, naked, appearing upset, and making non-sensical statements.  Additional officers were called to the scene. <br><br>Officers tried to detain Rickman in order to move him out of the roadway. He resisted, resulting in a struggle and him going to the ground. During the struggle, Rickman kicked officers and hissed at them. It took officers about three minutes to place Rickman in handcuffs.<br><br>Rickman's legs were secured with a RIPP restraint which was linked to his handcuffs and a spit hood was also placed on his head.  A RIPP restraint is a device used to secure the legs of an individual to minimize their ability to kick. A spit hood is a mesh cloth material that prevents a person from spitting on others while still allowing them to breath. <br><br>He was then put on his side, in what is known as the recover position, while officers on scene requested the assistance from the Phoenix Fire Department. <br><br>Rickman was moved to a seated position on the sidewalk while waiting for paramedics. When Phoenix Fire Paramedics arrived, they began evaluating Rickman. About 10 minutes into the evaluation, an officer realized that Rickman had lost consciousness. Phoenix Fire began lifesaving measures and transported Rickman to a local hospital where he was subsequently pronounced deceased. <br><br>The officers involved in this incident are assigned to the Mountain View and Central City Precincts. They range from 23-50 years of age and have between two and 17 years of service with the Phoenix Police Department. <br><br>There were no injuries to officers or other community members.<br> <br>Conclusions about whether the actions of the officers are consistent with department policy and the law will not be made until all facts are known and the investigation is complete. An internal investigation by the Professional Standard Bureau is currently underway, in addition to a criminal investigation. Once the criminal investigation is complete it will then be reviewed by the Maricopa County Attorney's Office.<br> <br>Public records law required redaction of certain personal identifying information before video is released publicly. Therefore, you may see some parts of Body Worn Camera (BWC) blurred or covered with a black box. Redacted video is released to local media in conjunction with the release of this Critical Incident Briefing for independent review and publication. Complete, unedited versions of the BWC are released to attorneys and the courts as evidence in a criminal case.<br></html></div>https://phoenix.gov/policeVideo
