El Mirage Council Proposing to Jack Up Tax Rates, Water, Sewer, and Garbage Rates Again; Protest Planned at City Easter Event

El Mirage officials are hosting an Easter Eggstravaganza -- "the greatest Easter event El Mirage has ever seen" -- on March 30 at Bill Gentry Park, 14010 N. El Mirage Road.

As children get their photos taken with the Easter Bunny, color eggs, pet ponies, and romp around in a bouncy house, El Mirage residents upset about yet another proposed rate increase for their water, sewer, garbage, and property taxes plan to march in protest.
