Adoption of Tentative City Budget Tonight

After months of planning and tweaking the Fiscal Year 2016/17 Recommended Budget, the Mayor and Tucson City Council tonight is scheduled to adopt the tentative $1.37 billion plan that includes a mix of spending cuts and revenue increases.

Tucson is a PulsePoint Connected Community (Video)

The Tucson area is a connected community, giving citizens the chance to save lives via the PulsePoint app for smartphones. PulsePoint is a product that connects CPR/AED trained members of the public to emergency calls nearby.

The app alerts members to an emergency that may require the use of CPR and/or an AED. PulsePoint will send an alert to any registered user with a smartphone within the proximity of the emergency. The system also provides the location of the closest AED.
