Editor: Last week, the Pinal County Board of Supervisors adopted a tentative budget for the upcoming fiscal year that starts in July. The tentative budget for fiscal year 2012-2013 came in at $334,515,835 or six percent lower than last year’s budget. This amount cannot be raised, but it can be lowered before we adopt the actual budget. Property owners will be receiving a break in their tax bills—the Board unanimously voted to drop the property tax

rate from $3.99 per $100.00 of assessed valuation to $3.79 One item that seemed to garner a lot of discussion was my proposal to give county employees a one-time, one percent pay increase for the upcoming year. The pay raise would have cost the county approximately $1.3 million. While I wish I could have proposed a two and a half percent increase, the one percent increase seemed to be the most logical step that would get us moving in the right direction. As an example, under a one percent increase,a worker making $30 thousand per year, would have received an extra check for $300.00, minus taxes. My thoughts proposing a pay increase was this—I know our employees have not seen a cost of living adjustment in four years. These employees have had to endure the same hardships the rough economy has thrust on all Americans. They have been dedicated workers for the Pinal County. They have bills to pay, families to feed and obligations to meet, just like the rest of us. While it isn’t a lot of money, this would be better than no increase at all. Our economy seems to be improving, albeit slowly and our county budget can sustain such a pay increase. We could even provide employees a 2.5 percent increase and still have a balanced budget for next year. I grew up on the eastern

part of Pinal County in the Dudleyville and Hayden area. Many of us worked for copper mining companies in the area. I saw first-hand the struggle working families went through on a daily basis. These people worked hard and expected to be fairly compensated for it. Proposing a pay increase for county employees at this time isn’t pandering or electioneering; on the contrary it’s probably bad timing for a politician to do so. Most county employees don’t even reside in my district. The point is that funds are available this fiscal year for a pay increase even after providing our property tax payers a tax decrease. Fighting for better wages for working families is what I do, it is a part of who I am. Chad Roche, Clerk of the Superior Court advocated for merit pay, instead of my proposed pay increase. His testimony and that of a few other against my proposal effectively killed the employee increase at this time. I worked under the merit pay system a long time ago for the State of Arizona, but it also included across the board pay increases. If I couldn’t get a second to my motion on the board for a one percent pay raise, where would I get a second for a much more expensive pay plan advocated by Mr. Roche? /s/ Pete Rios, Chairman Pinal County Board of Supervisors

Letter to the Editor: Overrides coming up for voter approval Editor: The Oracle Elementary School District is funded in part by voter approved budget overrides. There is a 10 percent maintenance and operation override and a 5 percent kindergarten through third-grade override. During the 2011/2012 school year these overrides generated *approximately $298,491 and $149,246 respectively. The maintenance and operation (M&O) piece pays for the salaries and benefits of the three teachers who provide physical education, music, and art. It also pays for the salary and benefits for one special-education teacher. The maintenance and operation component also provides the flexibility to allow the district to offer and maintain increases in salary and benefits to all of the district staff, as well as, providing professional development

and classroom supplies to support instruction. The kindergarten through third grade (K-3) piece pays the salaries and benefits of one kindergarten teacher, one first grade teacher, one second grade teacher, and two paraprofessionals who support instruction, as well as, 27.4 percent of a thirdgrade teacher’s salary and benefits. The overrides were first authorized by the voters in 2004 and the voters authorized the overrides again in 2008. This summer the Oracle School Board will discuss the possibility of an election to ask the voters to authorize the override again. If the School Board decides to place the override question on a ballot it could appear as soon as the November 2012 election. A change in state legislation allows for the override to be one 15% M&O override instead

of the current 10 percent M&O override and 5 percent K-3 override. The reasons for the overrides have remained the same over the years and will continue to mirror previous resolutions. These purposes are spelled out in the override resolution that is approved by the school board. The resolution specifically explains what the money can be used for:** • Grades K-8. • Continuation of high quality instruction. • Continuation of higher educational standards.

• Continuation and enhancement of program services. • Support inflation needs of the District and district employees. • Offer competitive salaries and benefit packages for teachers, support staff, and administrators. • Enhance the current educational programs for the students by continuing existing curricular programs such as, music, art, and physical education and/or add to the curriculum items such as a reading specialist. • Make available

professional development to meet NCLB (No Child Left Behind). • Smaller classes sizes, which require additional teachers, paraprofessional assistance, and supportive supplies and material. The current tax rate total for the district is 3.0129. A breakdown of this tax rate follows: • primary tax rate of 2.7649. • secondary tax rate of 0.2481 = (M & O override 0.1588 plus the K - 3 override 0.0893).

Fish and Wildlife Service proposes initiative to protect Lower San Pedro River; meeting set for tomorrow in San Manuel The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) is exploring the possibility of establishing a collaborative conservation initiative along the riparian corridor of the Lower San Pedro River (San Pedro) from the Narrows to its confluence with the Gila River. The

initiative would involve interested landowners, land managing agencies, local communities, nonprofit organizations, businesses and the public. The vision of the initiative is to conserve one of the Southwest’s prime areas of biological diversity, help to safeguard water

supplies for municipal and agricultural users downstream, and preserve a working rural landscape of ranches and farms. Additionally, the vision for this initiative includes the formation of a landowner-driven collaborative conservation component, similar to the Malpai Borderlands Group. The Service could participate as a land-based agency representative on this group, but would not control the group’s decisions or activities. As part of an extensive public participation process, the Service is hosting three public meetings within the project area to discuss the concept with members of the public and interested stakeholders, and to identify issues that should be considered. Two of the meetings have been held in Tucson (June 12) and Cascabel (June 13). A third meeting is set for Thursday, June 14, in San Manuel. The meeting will be held: • Thursday, June 14, 6:30-

8:30 pm San Manuel High School Cafeteria, 711 McNab Parkway San Manuel, AZ 85631 In addition to these meetings, the Service will accept written comments until Wednesday, August 1, 2012. Written comments can be sent to: Jeannie Wagner-Greven, Lead Planner, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, P.O. Box 1306, Albuquerque NM; 87102; or to Jeannie_WagnerGreven@ fws.gov. These public meetings and 60-day open comment period are formally referred to as ‘Scoping’ and are a part of compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The San Pedro is the last major undammed river in the American Southwest and one of the largest remaining intact mesquite bosques in the world. This Globally Important Bird Area is located at the convergence of four major ecosystems–the Sierra Madre and Rocky Mountains, and the Sonoran and Chihuahuan

deserts. This convergence contributes to its high biodiversity values. It is recognized as one of the primary migratory bird corridors in the West, with estimates of up to four million birds that annually traverse the corridor between Mexico and breeding areas. Through this process the Service seeks to identify an administratively approved project boundary. If a boundary is approved, the Service would be able to contribute an array of various tools that landowners could voluntarily and freely choose from. This includes technical assistance, cooperative agreements for management, Partners for Fish and Wildlife Program grants, conservation easements, or fee title acquisition by the Service. Any fee title acquisition by the Service would be from willing sellers only. Any formally acquired

lands would be managed as a part of the National Wildlife Refuge System. Based on the information received during these Scoping meetings, the Service will determine if moving forward on the project is appropriate. If deemed appropriate the Service will create a draft Land Protection Plan, Conceptual Management Plan, and any necessary NEPA compliance documents. The draft documents would be made available to the public through an open comment period and another round of public meetings would be held. Based on the feedback received, a recommendation would be made to Service headquarters in Washington D.C where any final decision would be made. The mission of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is working with others to conserve, protect and enhance fish, wildlife, See Meeting, Page 12

Letter to the Editor: We’re tired of the bickering Editor, San Manuel Miner: Reading the Miner yesterday, we came across yet another letter from Pete Rios, aimed at Paul Babeu. ENOUGH ALREADY you two. We are getting disgusted with your public feud, using the newspaper to display your quarrel with each other. Why can’t you stop acting like two school boys, accusing, judging and just plain mocking each other’s position? We don’t even read all the way through your complaining ‘letters’ to each other, trying to make us, the public, your schoolmasters. From all we can see, we have an excellent Sheriff’s department, better than any predecessors since we have been here. Also, is appears that we have a decent supervisor’s department. Please.....stop using the voters and taxpayers, and just do the best job you can (what we pay you for) and quit the bickering for goodness sake! /s/ John and La Norma Raaum

New Mammoth Council Members sworn in at special meeting By Mila Lira At a special meeting of the Mammoth Town Council, Interim Town Manager Patsy Large swore in the council members who were

elected in May. The new council members are: incumbent Frances Wickham and newly elected members, Juan Barcelo and Joe Brewer.

The new council members were immediately seated with their colleagues and went to work approving the departments heads for a year, created a new grant

writer position, accepted the resignation of Police Chief Jay Baugher and voted to approve advertising for the open council seat to be filled by the July meeting. The following staff members were appointed as the department heads for the 2012-13 fiscal year: Town Clerk: Patsy Large; Town Attorney: Steve Cooper; Public Works Director: David Garcia; Magistrate: Arnold Estrada; and Interim Police Chief Marty McIntosh. Estrada will hold his position as magistrate for two years based on the Arizona Revised Statutes. The Council discussed the importance of creating a grant writers position to assist with applying for funds to help the town with special projects. While the council continued to refer to the grant writer as a “she,” Vice Mayor Wickham explained that they would have to post for the position and hire someone. After discussion on what types of grant the new employee would write and which projects they would work on the council voted unanimously to advertise and hire a grant writer. The council also voted in favor of filling two administrative

positions and purchasing a new computer for the administration at Town Hall. The positions will be filled after July 1, 2012. The council also voted to approve the independent auditor’s report which was presented at the regular meeting of May 17. Councilman Barcelo asked about how the town became $330,000 in the red. Town Attorney Steve Cooper and Clerk Patsy Large explained that the town essentially overspent the general fund budget with HURF dollars to cover expenses at the sewer and water plants. Cooper explained that the town did not increase the cost of services however the cost to provide the services had increased due to the

rise in fuel costs and other cost increases. Those added costs were what overran the budget. He also gave an explanation on how the HURF funds could not be used for anything other than roads therefore the HURF monies used to cover the overage in the budget had to be repaid. The council also voted to advertise for letters of interest for those wishing to fill the vacant council seat. The council directed staff to run ads in the paper and post the announcement on town bulletin boards. Those interested in applying for the open council seat will need to submit a letter of interest by July 12, 2012 at 4 p.m. Letters should be delivered to Town Hall.

El Centro: A Drug Free and Friendly Teen Center Special to the San Manuel Miner By Joshua Delauder There is one phrase heard throughout the community by pretty much all the teenagers here: “There’s nothing to do in San Manuel; it’s soooo boring.” Well, I have good news to all the teenagers living here; you now have something to do. El Centro has arrived! El Centro had its grand opening last Friday and I had the pleasure of being a part of it. El Centro is a drug free, bully free, and swearing free center where teens from ages 12 to 19 can go just to hang out and have fun. As of grand opening night, they have: two pool tables, a sound stage with music and karaoke, a ping pong table, a videogame corner with an Xbox, two Wiis, a Playstation 2, a PS3 in the future and three laptops. Later on, they will also have foosball tables arriving and a library consisting of hundreds

of games. In addition to all that, they also have leather couches to just relax on. El Centro has bought a few of their resources, but a lot was also donated. El Centro was not just given away free under any circumstances. Betty Chavez, the director of Adelante Juntos had to go through five years of School Board meetings just to get the place permitted and opened. She had to prepare a business plan and also have insurance in case that any of the teens got injured. After tiresome meetings and five years of hard work, El Centro turned out to be an excellent and safe place for teens. Betty wants every child to be drug free and according to her, “many people, even outside the community, want to help kids stay drug free.” Attending the grand opening, were some much respected members of our community. In attendance were: Fred Roybal, Dr. Pepe

Baron-AJC’s CEO, Barbara Cisneros-the Director of Finance, John Zhang-the Director of Evaluation, Al Gutierrez-Sun Life Director, Raul Bueno, and Sabrina

Gonzales (all coordinators of AJC.) Lieutenant John Ellsworth, area lieutenant for Pinal County Sheriff’s Office, also attended. El Centro has turned out to be a perfect

place for teens and thanks to all the workers who made it possible. El Centro is an excellent place for all teens and is an experience that shouldn’t be

missed. It took a lot of work to get the place up and running, but all the hard work paid off. Congratulations to AJC and all who took part!

Water supply requirements discussed at Public Hearing By Mila Lira About a dozen residents from the Copper Corridor gathered to hear a presentation on water adequacy a proposed change to the County’s subdivision code by the Pinal County Planning and Development office. If the change is approved by the Board of Supervisors the new code will require any new subdivision that

has more than six lots to demonstrate that the development will have adequate water to serve the proposed lots. This amendment would only affect areas that are not in an Active Management Area (AMA). Currently this amendment would only affect the eastern side of Pinal County including the incorporated communities of Kearny, Mammoth and Winkelman

(the Pinal County portion) and the unincorporated areas of the Copper Corridor. Should the Board of Supervisors approve the amendment the incorporated communities will also have to amend their subdivision codes. If approved the adequate water supply amendment will require the developer of six or more lots to do a hydrological study to determine if there

was a 100 year supply of water to sustain the development. Hydrological studies generally cost $15,000 to $50,000. The costs could increase if a study well has to be drilled to complete the process. The Arizona Department of Water Resources determines whether or not a subdivision has an adequate water supply based on physical water availability, legal

RETURN PAYMENT ALONG WITH A SIGNED PARTICIPATION WAIVER Hayden: Yolanda Marquez (520) 356-3212 Ray: Rosa Aguirre (520) 356-2201 CBRR: Rikki Galka (520) 356-7730

water availability, financial capability to build the necessary systems and water quality. The amendment would also give the Pinal County Board of Supervisors the ability to grant an exception to the amendment if the property meets the following criteria: There are no feasible alternatives and there is no significant risk to health or safety. If water will be trucked in from a municipality, the municipality must consent. If the water being trucked is groundwater, the source must meet all state laws, and any additional requirements of the board. When the incorporated communities amend their subdivision codes, they will be able to create their own exemption code. Dedrick Denton, a Planner II from the Planning and Development office, conducted the meeting. He explained that this change if approved would only apply to new subdivisions that have not already been recorded at the county. He reviewed several examples on how this proposed amendment would apply. For instance those subdivided properties who are already recorded no matter how large will not have to go through this amendment process, however if that same property is subdivided again and into 6 separate parcels for a development then the developer would have to complete a adequate water hydrological study. The study would not be required if the parcels were split five or fewer ways. The hearing was part of the process to approve the amendment. The next step for the amendment will be for the Planning and Zoning commission to review the amendment then make recommendation to the Board of Supervisors. It is expected that the Board of Supervisors may be ready to vote on the amendment by late summer or early fall. Mammoth Public Works Director David Garcia

expressed his concerns on behalf of the town that this amendment could hurt potential development because of the added cost to build a subdivision. He explained that the amendment if approved would cost the proposed Cielo subdivision another $60,000 to $80,000. He also explained that based on his experience Mammoth has at least a 200-year supply of water. Supervisor Pete Rios was in the audience to hear the presentation and to hear from the residents in attendance. Rios explained that these hydrology studies help the developers to determine if there would be an adequate amount of water to serve the development. In the event that a proposed development did not have enough water the developer would have to truck the water in at a much higher cost than the initial hydrology study. Developers who develop in communities that are in an AMA are not only required to meet the 100 year requirement but they are also required to return a percentage of water back to the aquifer. The Pinal County amendment would not require the return of water to the aquifer. The amendment will also not affect economic development as far as commercial operations unless the business subdivides their commercial property. Commercial developments are required to submit necessary permitting to the Arizona Department of Water Resources to ensure there is a sustainable water source for the business and ensure that the business would not hurt the current supply of water. This amendment was recommended by the Pinal County Water Element Citizens Task Force. The task force recommended that the county consider a water adequacy amendment. The County’s comprehensive plan was amended to prompt the board to consider this amendment.
