The Queen Creek Town Council on Wednesday set the town’s first primary property tax rate at $1.95 per $100 of assessed valuation.

The revenue of $2.7 million from the property tax will pay for expenses related to public safety in the town. The town has the end goal of creating a town-run fire department.

The levy is part of a funding package for public safety that includes a 0.25 percent sales tax increase and a fire development fee charged on new single-family home construction.

Currently fire service in the town is provided on a subscription basis by the private Rural/Metro Fire Department. The town is in the process of negotiating a master contract with Rural/Metro for fire service until the town can operate its own service.
