TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The annual League of Arizona Cities & Towns has taken over the Hilton El Conquistador. The league conference will take over the resort for the next four days.

More than 80 mayors from cities and towns from around the state will be at the conference. They are expecting over a thousand people to be at the event, this includes political officials, staff members and vendors. The Hilton is sold out and so are 2 other hotels in the area.

Today is the first day of the conference. Many of the political leaders checked in and met for the first time this afternoon.

The biggest turnout was during the 2014 proposed resolutions. During this time, leaders talk about laws they would like to see changed or improved. There were about 20 resolutions on the agenda sponsored by several different cities and towns.

The Town of Oro Valley sponsored a resolution that would make requirements for the annexation process a little easier and more flexible. Currently you need 51% of signatures and 51% of assessed values. The resolution would make it an or situation. Either the signatures or the assessed value to get annexation.

Oro Valley just recently completed an annexation Northwest of Ina and Oracle. It took the town about 3 years to complete that process.

The resolution was passed by the mayors. The next is to have the League of Arizona Cities and Towns bring the issue to the State Legislature.
