Glendale has warning for residents if sales tax increase fails

GLENDALE, AZ - Residents of Glendale have been issued a warning that if they reverse a $125 million sales tax increase in November, the potential cuts could affect city services including police and fire.

On Tuesday night, the City of Glendale sent out a fact sheet to fight growing concern about what happens if voters repeal the tax.

The fact sheet states if the tax goes away, 250 positions are in danger, including police and firefighters. All city festivals would be shut down including Glendale Glitters, and all libraries and pools would close.

That notice didn't mention the Coyotes arena deal, or the long-term debt the city owes for building Camelback Ranch ballpark for the Chicago White Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers.
