County Administrator Chuck Huckelberry calls it a “Band-Aid,” but it is unclear what the Pima County Board of Supervisors will eventually call it.

Property owners will probably just call it another tax increase.

Huckelberry recently revived a plan to create a $5 million fund to fix potholes in the next fiscal cycle with money coming from a small increase in the primary property tax.

The idea failed to find support earlier this year, with supervisors rejecting the proposal.

But with no new funding in sight, Huckelberry said he has little choice but try again in next year’s budget, asking for a “Band-Aid” to fix crumbling streets.
