By a 2-to-1 margin, Marana voters approved the Home Rule Option in Tuesday's night's election. It was an all mail election for the second time.

The Home Rule Option was the only question on the ballot, as voters approved allowing the town to manage its own wastewater treatment facility in the March primary election and reelected multiple council members.

The home rule option will allow the town to spend more than the $42.7 million cap imposed by the Arizona Constitution. The town is seeking a budget capacity of $95.5 million, which would include revenues from federal, state and local sources.

The Town Council was set to officially approve the 2013/2014 fiscal year budget Wednesday night.

 

Each of the incumbents earned more than 50 percent of the votes, earning their seats and preventing them, under state law, from having to run in the general election.
