    Town of Oro Valley to buy Hilton golf course, raise taxes

    Why rush into such a big purchase?

    Mayor Hiremath, Council Members Waters, Snider, and  Hornat have all just been re-elected to the town council by wide margins.  This is the same group that, during their first term, doubled the Utility tax.  Now they are proposing to buy the El Conquistador Country Club and raise the Town’s sales tax to pay for it.  We all agree that Oro Valley needs a community center, but we do not agree on whether or not we need to rush into making a commitment that not all desire.
