Tucson Foothills Annexation

The folks in the Catalina Foothills just love living in Tucson…so long as they aren’t actually part of Tucson; never understood it, myself.

I’ve lived in the Foothills for thirty-five years and I think it would be nifty to be able to elect representatives to the Tucson City Council. I’d like to be able to have a vote in water issues, too. I’m okay with city police and fire protection; and the city’s solid waste fee is cheaper than what I pay for garbage collection.

There must be peristaltic waves of “annexation” anxiety sweeping through the lower reaches of the Foothills. I spotted these signs along River Road. What’s up?

Here’s the City’s annexation site: click
The sponsor of one of the signs is at:

I live in the foothills and a number of those signs are on my street as well. Taxes will go up for us and I'm not sure if the free fire service will even that out. The bigget difference I can see is that city garbage only comes once a week, instead of twice, which we really like. So, I guess you can say this issue comes down to "garbage" for us! :)
