Marana votes for big budget

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Marana voters approved a plan Tuesday night to allow the town to spend more than allowed under the state constitution.

The proposal, known as the home-rule option, passed 2,935 (65 percent) to 1,549 (35 percent).

The voter-approved mandate comes as the town prepares to vote Wednesday night on its 2013-2014 budget.

The town was seeking a budget capacity of more than $95.5 million instead of the $42.7 million cap mandated by the constitution.

Marana's budget in 2013-2014 is projected to be $81.9 million.
