Fountain Hills weighs in on pending legislation

By Bob Burns | Fountain Hills Times

When the Town Council met Feb. 16, it addressed several items before the Arizona Legislature and urged staff to put the town on record as opposing several bills currently making their way through the process.

Town Manager Grady Miller discussed a few of the items and received council consensus to oppose a Senate Bill (SB1687) that would prohibit government use of social media to communicate with the public. This bill is sponsored by Senator Michelle Ugenti-Rita who represents Fountain Hills in the State Senate.

“We are being told already that we don’t communicate enough with the public,” Councilwoman Sharron Grzybowski said in support of opposing the bill.
