Oro Valley Town Manager David Andrews has delivered to the council his 2008-09 recommended budget. Over the next few months, the council will analyze the document and send it back to the manager before granting final approval.

The new budget totals $201 million, an $82 million increase from last year.

Close to $106 million of the total budget is slated for capital costs.

Nearly $50 million of the increase tracks from budgeted expenses tied to passage of the Naranja Town Site proposed park. In November voters will determine the fate of the park.

Another $32 million of the budget is hinged on the new Municipal Operations Center.

The manager’s budget also recommends the addition of five new town employees, two in development services and one each in administration, magistrate court and water utility. The additions would bring the total number of employees to 381.8.
