City of Surprise

As Arizona posted another daily case record, the Democratic mayors of Tucson and Phoenix respectively ordered and prepared to vote on mandatory face coverings after Republican Governor Doug Ducey bowed to pressure and let cities set mask rules.

I asked the city if the council members had a limit on their spending for travel & training. Received the answer below.

The City Council has $45,000 set aside for travel and training amongst all 7 Councilmembers. Typically, we break it down by district representative and the Mayor has slightly more but at the end of the day, and for budgetary purposes – there is $45,000. As an fyi, this has not increased in at least 6 years and there has never come a time when the Council has used all of it. Mayor Wolcott had travelled substantially more than any other Councilmember so when she was Mayor, more of it was utilized during her duration than current years.
