There’s still time to get your nominating papers in to be a Chino Valley Town Council write-in candidate. Write-in candidates must file a nominating paper signed by the candidate, giving the person’s actual residence address or description of the place of residence and P.O. Box, age, length of time in the state and date of birth. The deadline to file nominating papers and other forms at the Town Clerk’s office is 5 pm on Thursday, July 21st for the August 30th Primary Election. That election has Councilman Darryl Croft and Robert McCaulley running for Mayor and Council members Corey Mendoza and Lon Turner running for 2 two year terms. Write-in candidates include Lillian Morales and Gary Pasciak. Incumbents Suzie Cuka and Jack Miller and challenger Annie Lane are running for 3 four year terms. Write-in candidate forms are available at the Town Clerk’s office on Highway 89 or by calling 636-2646.

Last 2 Dirt Roads Paved

The last 2 dirt roads in the Castle Canyon Mesa area of Prescott Valley have been paved. According to Yavapai County Supervisor Jack Smith, those 2 dirt roads are Knave Lane and Lord Circle. The County Public Works Department is responsible for maintaining almost 800 miles of paved roads and 732 miles of unpaved roads. A recent survey identified roads that are in need of repair. Information that has been collected on paved roads will be used to better analyze and assess all paved roadways for future maintenance and improvements. Supervisor Smith says all 5 dirt roads in Castle Canyon Mesa are now paved and will receive maintenance from Public Works.

Road Improvements

Construction is scheduled to begin later this month on improvements to Viewpoint and Roundup Drives in Prescott Valley. Town Public Works Director Norm Davis describes what will be taking place on a 1-mile section of roadway between Robert Road and Addis Avenue. Davis explains how this project will be funded. These roadways will also include chip seal and striping. Last night Town Council approved a more than $330,000 contract with Asphalt Paving and Supply for this project.

Construction is set to start July 25th and should take 21 days to complete.
