Notice of Intent - Increase Fees for Collection of Residential and Commercial Solid Waste

On or after May 11, 2015, the Mayor and Council of the City of Tucson will consider the approval of increases up to 5% in certain rates for fees for the collection and/or disposal of solid waste and recycling from residences and businesses.

The Mayor and Council will also consider the approval of a new fee for Commercial Food Waste/Compost Material Collection.

Public Notice

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the City of Tucson will amend cost recovery fees for case disclosure handled by the City Prosecutor’s Office.

The City Prosecutor’s Office has adopted Journal Technologies’ JusticeWeb disclosure system to facilitate the disclosure of discovery matters. Disclosure is mandated by Arizona Rules of Criminal Procedure Rule 15. The new web-based system will allow more efficient disclosure and insure 24 hour access to discovery materials for defendants and defense lawyers. The adoption of JusticeWeb has and will continue to incur additional costs for the City.

Currently, electronic disclosure costs $5.00 per disclosure packet. Effective July 1, 2015, for  each electronic disclosure packet in a criminal prosecution or in those few civil code violation cases where the City Prosecutor enters a notice of appearance, the cost will be $5.50 per packet (with unlimited web access to the packet) for reading or download.

Currently paper disclosure costs $5.00 per 15 pages. Effective July 1, 2015, the cost will be $11.00 per 15 pages. Customers are encouraged to access electronic disclosure instead, as electronic disclosure is a more convenient method for accessing disclosure which conserves City resources and is a more environmentally sustainable alternative to traditional paper disclosure.

Currently CDs and DVDs cost $25 per disc. This cost will not change.

DATED this 27th day of April, 2015
