Special Election Results:
Approximately 2/3rds of the registered voters within Carefree voted in Tuesday’s Special Election. As of Tuesday evening, 80% of the ballots cast voted against the proposed property tax levy which would have financially supported a transition to the regional automatic aid system. The election results send a clear message that the community is pleased with the fire and emergency medical services provided by Rural Metro. Therefore, the existing contract with Rural Metro will automatically extend for an additional 42 months to fulfill the 5-year term.
The Town would like to thank you for participating in this election.
Carefree Ordinance 2022-03 was adopted unanimously by the Town Council in February of this year as a means to address common problems associated with short-term/vacation rentals. The Ordinance requires rental property owners/operators to obtain a Carefree Permit for each property and comply with several safety, health and neighborhood notification requirements. The annual license fee is $250 per property.
