Last Week

At the May 7th meeting of the Rotary Club of Verrado, Dr. Clay Goodman, Councilman for Buckeye City's District 6, and a member of the Rotary Club, presented a comprehensive proposal from the City of  Buckeye Citizens’ Bond Committee. The proposal, which is under consideration for a General Obligation Bond Offering by the City of Buckeye, encompasses a series of projects aimed at enhancing public safety, transportation, and recreation infrastructure within the city.
The citizen board, which is composed of engaged community members, has put forth a recommendation for the City Council to consolidate the primary projects into a two ballot questions. The first would consider transportation and public safety projects and the second, recreation infrastructure.  The total bond was recommended at an estimated $298 million, which would be funded through bonds secured as a general obligation of the City, funded by a secondary property tax.
The focus on public safety improvements and transportation initiatives reflects the community's priorities and the growing needs of the City of Buckeye. The proposed bond, if passed by the City Council, will be presented to the citizens for a vote in the upcoming November 2024 election. This strategic move could significantly impact the city's development trajectory and quality of life for its residents.
The councilman's presentation was not only an outline of potential fiscal strategies but also a dialogue on civic engagement and the power of community-led initiatives. The Rotary Club of Verrado, known for its commitment to community service and development, provided a fitting audience for such a discussion, emphasizing the importance of informed participation in local governance. The bond proposal, with its substantial budget and focus on critical areas, represents a pivotal moment for the citizens of Buckeye to shape the future of their city.
