On April 16, 2009, a group of voters decided to put the Taxpayer Protection Initative on the ballot. John Danforth is the treasurer of the “Taxpayer Protection Committee in Favor of Petition #IN09-01”, and he explained the initiative this way, “The Taxpayer Protection Initiative will require voter approval of most large projects. Where we’re defining large as $40 million or more undertaken by the City of Prescott. There are exemptions for public health type expenditures, which would be truly mammoth, but they are exempted as well as a few other specific situations.”
