GOODYEAR ELECTION CYCLE UNDER REVIEW
Earlier this week, we responded to a resident who wanted to know why Goodyear elections are opposite of State elections. The concerns are low voter turnout and high expense to run these elections independent of others.
We have just confirmed the Goodyear City Council and City Staff will review Goodyear's elections in a worksession on August 21 and "process will be complete prior to the next election scheduled in 2019."
We've got it on our calendar.

"GOODYEAR GOLD MINE" REACTION
We've had some reaction to our Goodyear Gold Mine blog piece from Friday. Two improvement projects totaling $240,000 have come under scrutiny.
Two readers raised concerns about the library improvement project and the cost of the concrete design. We went to take a closer look.
The City of Goodyear website shows the $145,000 library improvement project is 99% complete.
The Goodyear Library posted these "before" pictures on May 1, 2017.
Today, we snapped these almost "after" photos.
The library tells us the concrete has to "cure" and it will be stamped in around the end of the month. When completed, we think the project will be 100% completed.
The project adds two trees which will need water and staff resources for upkeep.
