From the Office of the Mayor and Town Council

The Town of Gila Bend and its vision for Economic Development understands the importance of an excellent education system. The success of our school can be linked to the success of our community, as the Town’s future depends on our future leaders. The Mayor and Town Council are in the process of looking in-depth at the budgetary impacts regarding the upcoming school bond proposal slated for November 2016. The school bond proposal in its current form does not provide enough information for a position. We are looking forward to collaborating with the school board and school administration.
