Mesa calls for local election in November for ballot measures

Mesa voters will be receiving a longer ballot in November, as its City Council called for a local election on four ballot measures the same day as the presidential election. 

One measure will ask Mesa voters to adjust the city’s expenditure limit by about $148 million. According to the city, that proposal does not increase taxes on residents. 

Two measures are seeking bond approval to enhance community safety and improve some of the city’s recreational facilities. Those bonds would be paid for through property taxes.

The last asks for approval of Mesa’s 2050 General Plan, which gives community leaders guidance and strategies for decision making for the next decade.

Arguments for or against the ballot measures need to be filed with the city clerk by early August.
