“Christmas in July” Stocks United Food Bank Shelves During Slow Summer Months


“Christmas in July” is a program created in 2007 to help United Food Bank (UFB) stock our shelves during our slow summer months. Many may be surprised to learn that demand on food banks is greatest in the June – September timeframe.  Additionally, when school is out, thousands of Arizona children are not receiving free or reduced breakfast and lunch.  In an effort to ensure those in the East Valley and eastern counties of the state are fed during the summer, we’ve partnered with local chambers of commerce in Maricopa County, the Gilbert Chamber included, to host food drives and expose member businesses to this need.  Over the last 8 years, through the generosity of the chamber businesses that have participated in this program, we have provided nearly 600,000 meals to the hungry. On behalf of the UFB Board, thank you; and we hope you’ll join the fight to end hunger in our state this year too.

Genuinely,

Rustyn Sherer

Great news for Gilbert Businesses – Revised Sign Code Approved!

After two-years of negotiating and stakeholder meetings, the Town Council approved the revised sign code that is business-friendly, easier to navigate, and provides much more clarity.  The Chamber is proud to have been a key stakeholder representing your interests, especially as the Town delicately ensured compliance with the Supreme Court case ruling.

Elements of the revised sign code include extending various sign types throughout the community, allowing for new lighting technology, ensuring sufficient time is allowed to replace and repair signs, reduction in spacing between monument signs with the property, additional A-Frame/Flying banners per business, easy-to-read tables and illustrations all stand out as new items. 

This has been a heavy-lift for the Town Staff, Council, and members of our Public Policy committee as we worked with restrictions placed by the Supreme Court relating to not regulating signs based on content; especially as cities across the nation are waiting for our code to be written prior to revising sign codes within their own community.  Thank you to all for your hard work and commitment to a business-friendly environment in Gilbert.

You may find the revised sign code online at https://www.gilbertaz.gov/departments/development-services/planning-development/signs.  With every revision of the code, we will always find new items to revise, clarify or add; so, we will take another look at this within the next year.  Let us know your feedback in the meantime so we can include that in our discussions!

Gilbert Chamber and EVCCA Weigh In On Important Healthcare Bill In US Senate

The EVCCA sent letters to Senators Flake and McCain urging proper vetting of the Better Care Reconciliation Act (BRCA) which changes the current Affordable Care Act. Changes to ACA are desperately needed, however, those presented in the current version of the BCRA will have inadvertent negative impacts on Arizona.

Two major areas were addressed in the letter - accessibility, affordability, and efficiency of insurance coverage for all businesses - solo entrepreneurs, small, medium and large; and Arizona is not positioned to bear the more than $7.1 billion of costs over the next eight years to the Arizona General Fund if cuts to the Medicare program were to occur.

The Governor just signed the ADA fix!

Thanks to the EVCCA, Arizona businesses are protected from drive-by lawsuits and the first state in the nation to protect business websites. The bill changes the litigation processes for alleged violations under the Arizona Americans with Disability Act (Arizona ADA). It specifies that a private entity is allowed 30 days to comply with Arizona ADA regulation, unless a building permit is required; in which case a private entity is allowed an additional 60 days to resolve a violation. The specified time is tolled from the time after submitting an application until a final determination is provided and is not included in the calculation unless the delay is caused by the private entity. However, websites are exempt from the Arizona ADA.

This bill has been a priority of the EVCCA this session as the East Valley was targeted for hundreds of frivolous lawsuits against small businesses in which many settled out of court for thousands of dollars.  The EVCCA is a firm supporter of compliance and continues to educate businesses on size, placement of signs, parking spaces, etc. March 2017 Membership Anniversaries - Gilbert Chamber of Commerce

Speaker of the House JD Mesnard and his new role at the Legislature

Speaker JD Mesnard met with the Gilbert Chamber during the SRP Good Government breakfast this past week and shared his thoughts on the State’s budget process.  Good news is that the revenue projections for the Governor’s and legislators’ budgets are very close which translates into less tough negotiations in the foreseeable future.  Unfortunately, due to Prop 105 mandates the ability to fund the more than $60M in new requests for individual line items makes these negotiations even more difficult.

We are thankful for Speaker Mesnard’s support of the ADA frivolous lawsuit bills as they provide businesses time to comply. 

Speaker Mesnard spoke of the concerns raised with exempting individual entities from paying TPT in an effort to leverage those dollars for bonds will open the door to the federal government questioning whether we are a true TPT state or a sales tax state.  Further concerns will be voiced on bonding and long-term debt.

There are several ballot reform bills moving through the House and Senate which include removing the ability to pay per signatures collected and requiring 10% signatures of registered voters gathered in each district impacted by the ballot issues to name a few.

Whitestone Reit Motion to Dismiss GRANTED, Defendants Must Submit Fee Applications Within 10 Days - Gilbert Chamber of Commerce
Sarah Watts's avatar
Motion to Dismiss GRANTED, Defendants Must Submit Fee Applications Within 10 Days

MORE GOOD NEWS!

Today, the Court granted our motion to dismiss the consolidated cases with prejudice.  Judge Talamante ruled from the bench after oral argument, stating that he would dismiss all of the consolidated cases (with the possible exception of the Tarian Properties case).  The State will be submitting a proposed form of judgment to the Court.

IMPORTANT: The Court said today that applications for fees and costs must be submitted within the next 10 days.  If you wish to request your fees and costs, you should file a motion with Judge Talamante within 10 days.  Keep in mind that a “fee application must be in sufficient detail to enable the court to assess the reasonableness of the time incurred.”  Schweiger v. China Doll Rest., Inc., 138 Ariz. 183, 188 (App. 1983). 

The State will be filing its own Motion for Sanctions within the next 10 days as well.  Please remember that the Attorney General’s Office cannot represent private parties, and cannot give you any legal advice.  We do not represent any defendant and will not be asking for fees on behalf of any defendant.  So if you wish to apply for fees and costs, you need to submit your own fee application within 10 days.

For informational purposes only, we believe that only defendants that have hired an attorney are going to be able to request fees.  We believe that only defendants that have filed documents with costs associated (such as an answer) are going to be able to recover those associated costs.  If the circumstances permit, we would encourage counsel who are representing multiple defendants to file a single request for fees for their various defendants to reduce the volume of filings.

Sarah Watts's avatar
Transaction Privilege Tax - Upcoming Changes

The Arizona Department of Revenue is implementing changes to Transaction Privilege Tax (TPT) licensing and reporting, as required by law.  These changes affect all Arizona-based businesses as well as those located outside of Arizona that sell to Arizona customers.

These changes will take effect with the June tax return that taxpayers file in July.

As a partner with keen interest in the Department’s successful implementation of these TPT program changes, we appreciate your help in getting word out about what is planned and encouraging businesses you are affiliated with to file TPT returns online at http://www.AZTaxes.gov
.
One of the key changes to take effect beginning July 1, 2016 is that all businesses, regardless of geographic location, will be required to use location-based reporting when submitting TPT returns.  All businesses licensed with the Department will receive a location code(s) identifying each physical location where the business operates.  Location codes will be automatically populated by correct jurisdiction for taxpayers who file electronically, or taxpayers will need to enter the codes correctly on the city detail page using the new TPT forms (TPT-2 and TPT-EZ).

The Department strongly encourages all taxpayers to file online for easier filing and faster processing. Businesses with more than one physical location in Arizona are now required by law to file their TPT returns electronically via http://www.AZTaxes.gov.  Please know the Department has set a goal to eventually eliminate all paper TPT transactions, and we look forward to working with partners like you to educate taxpayers about the benefits of filing online and encourage compliance.

You may be asked questions or receive requests for assistance from taxpayers about the upcoming changes.  Questions can be directed to the Department at 1-844-698-9176 or they can email AskTPT@azdor.gov.

If you would like to have a Department representative present to your organization about these changes, please contact Tom Johnson at RJohnson@azdor.gov.

Sincerely,


David Briant

2016 LEGISLATIVE SESSION REPORT CARD

Each year, the East Valley Chambers of Commerce Alliance (EVCCA) produces a report on the legislative session and lists bills that will have the most significance to East Valley businesses. It reports how each East Valley legislator voted on legislation relevant to the EVCCA.
