Bill's Newscast: Water, Speeding and Christmas Lights

30 November 2017  

Learn about Prescott Valley’s water source and supply. And hear about the Christmas light fundraising.

Water in PV: Source & Supply

Does Prescott Valley have enough water? You can get some answers at 5:30 tonight. Town officials say with new homes under construction, residents are often concerned about the impact of growth on water resources and whether their water supplies will be reduced as a result. A presentation will be made about water delivery and treatment systems, water resources and water quality. Town Utilities Director Neil Wadsworth and Water Resources Manager John Munderloh will address concerns, provide a history of the town’s water supply and explain how residents get their water. Tonight’s meeting will be held at the Granville Vista Pointe Event Center on Tuscany Way. Similar presentations are scheduled for next Monday at the Stoneridge Community Center and next Wednesday at the Pronghorn Ranch Clubhouse on Antelope Meadows Drive. Both presentations start at 5:30.

Zero tolerance of speeding in Camp Verde

The Camp Verde Marshal’s Office will be taking a zero tolerance approach to speeding starting tomorrow. The Marshal’s Office will ticket all drivers who are caught speeding and committing other moving traffic violations along Highway 260 in December. Marshal’s Office representatives say the enforcement is being prompted by several serious crashes that have occurred in recent weeks. Speed has been an element in several of those crashes. The Marshal’s Office has received many complaints about speeding, as well as following too closely and passing in no passing zones. The primary goal of the enforcement is to get people to slow down in the construction zone. A traffic unit will be out in unmarked cars and on motorcycle as part of this operation. If a driver is stopped for speeding or a moving violation, they can expect to get a citation.

Raffle for a Sculpture

For the first time ever, the Grand Marshal of the Prescott Christmas Parade will be honored. The Chamber of Commerce has added a new event, the Grand Marshal Gala, which will take place at the Plaza View Ballroom on Gurley Street at 6 tonight. Tommy Meredith, retired owner of Jersey Lilly Saloon on Whiskey Row, has been named Grand Marshal. During a recent live appearance on KQNA’s Talk of the Town, Meredith explained he has been helping to raise money for the Prescott Courthouse Lighting for years. Meredith says a special raffle will take place at Jersey Lilly Saturday night. Those who have made a donation towards the Prescott Courthouse Lighting have been entered into a drawing for the Bradford Williams sculpture “Holdin’ Position.”
