Vail residents voice concerns about town incorporation

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Hundreds of people attended an Incorporate Vail town hall meeting Thursday at Old Vail Middle School. One of the major concerns among residents - if they incorporate and become a town, can Vail can afford operating costs.

Incorporate Vail committee organizers say the town would get about $3.2 million dollars of state tax money which would help the entire area.

Those who attended the meeting also heard from a panel of neighboring city managers and mayors on how to deal with providing public safety and other services as a town.

Other concerned citizens were skeptical about the proposed boundaries for the town of Vail, while some were hesitant about rushing into incorporation; however Incorporate Vail committee members say the process has been in motion since 2007.

Voters will decide in November on proposition 403.

If the proposition passes, Vail would become Arizona's 40th largest town.
