The Maricopa City Council will consider and potentially vote Tuesday on a tentative budget for capital improvements for fiscal year 2019-2020.
The council discussion and potential action will also look at how the city’s capital spending fits into the fast-growing suburb’s 5-Year Capital Improvement Plan.
Maricopa has a population of approximately 52,000 people and continues to see growth and development. It is the second largest city in Pinal County after only Casa Grande.
The Maricopa Council is also scheduled to vote on a new $506,750 budget for its COMET (City of Maricopa Express Transit) system. That is demand service transit system offering $1 rides each way for customers making reservations. They operate Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. They are often used for those needing rides to doctors offices and hospitals.
A federal grant is funding $332,155 for the proposed budget.
