Marana, Sahuarita and South Tucson are holding primary elections for council positions tonight. Marana is also voting on two questions that could authorize the town to take over control of wastewater treatment facilities  at 14393 N. Luckett Road.

The latter votes will help end a years-long dispute between the town and Pima County. After fights in the state Legislature and courts, the Arizona Court of Appeals ruled last year the town lacked legal authority to own or operate the plant. Marana and Pima County have been negotiating a settlement in recent months, and one of the conditions was for Marana to get voters’ authorization.

Four Marana Town Council incumbents are attempting to hold off challenges from two challengers. In Sahuarita, three candidates are vying for one seat, while three other candidates are running unopposed. In South Tucson, three incumbents are facing three newcomers.

The first results are expected to come in by 8 p.m. Keep an eye on azstarnet.com for results.
