Joe Arpaio is Expected to be at the Trump Rally Today

Town Hall meeting postponed

A Yavapai County Town Hall meeting won’t go on as planned. Yavapai County Supervisor Craig Brown was scheduled to hold a Town Hall at the Juniper Woods Land Association facility at 6 tonight. That meeting has been postponed for the time being and it will be rescheduled as soon as a new date is secured. Brown still plans on hosting a Town Hall at 6 Thursday night in the Seligman High School Cafeteria on Main Street. There will be representatives from the Public Works, Development Services, Community Health, Flood Control and Emergency Management Departments, as well as the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office. All interested residents are invited to attend this Town Hall meeting.

NACOG hosts a meeting on transit planning

Share your comments on transit planning to meet the needs of seniors and individuals with disabilities. The Northern Arizona Council of Governments is hosting a meeting at 10 tomorrow morning where Yavapai County residents are invited to share insights on gaps in transportation services and barriers to improved regional coordination. They can also provide feedback on proposed projects and strategies included in the Coordinated Mobility Plan. This plan is a regional strategy for improving public, non-profit and private transportation service delivery for older adults and persons with disabilities. The Plan update meets the requirements set forth by the Arizona and U.S. Departments of Transportation for the distribution of Federal Transit funds. The Open House will be held at the Cottonwood Village Assisted Living Facility on Mingus Avenue. The Coordinated Mobility Plan is scheduled to be presented to the Northern Arizona Council of Government’s Regional Council for final approval at its February 23rd meeting.

Dewey-Humboldt meets tonight

The Dewey-Humboldt Town Council meets at 6:30 tonight to discuss a road transition from private to town owned and maintained. According to Town Manager Yvonne Kimball, earlier this year during budget discussions, some owners of certain privately owned roadways had expressed interest in having the town maintain these roads. Council is sympathetic with this situation, but the Town Attorney has advised these roads currently can’t be maintained legally. However, the Town has a private road transaction policy. At tonight’s meeting, Council will go through the standards and procedures that are used, including an application process with property owners, review of the application by the Public Works Director and assessment of the current road condition. The meeting will be held in Council chambers on Highway 69.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio expected at Trump’s Rally

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is among the dignitaries scheduled to attend Donald Trump’s rally today. Sheriff Arpaio says he’s been a supporter of Trump’s since day one. He adds the G.O.P. Presidential hopeful shouldn’t be fazed by the latest barrage of negative press against him, including the flap surrounding a nearly 1 billion dollar business loss that could’ve spared him 18 years worth of tax payments.

Arizona based pundit and author Jim Heath explains this rally really shows that even the Republican Presidential nominee is no longer certain the Grand Canyon State is Trump territory. Prescott Valley Mayor Harvey Skoog, Prescott Mayor Harry Oberg and State Representative Noel Campbell are also scheduled to attend the rally.
