DH to consider contribution to Prescott Area Wildland Urban Interface Commission
The Dewey-Humboldt Town Council will discuss a contribution to the Prescott Area Wildland Urban Interface Commission at 6:30 tonight. According to Town Manager Yvonne Kimball, the Commission has requested the Dewey-Humboldt Firewise Board make a donation to help defray their costs. Since the Commission is a non-profit organization staffed largely by volunteers, it’s in no financial position to make a donation. Kimball says since Council has made it a priority to protect the community from imminent fire danger, she believes it would be appropriate for the Town to make a donation. She intends to disburse 800 dollars to the Commission for firewise purposes, unless Council directs her otherwise. The Town Council meeting will be held in Town Hall on Highway 69.
Food service & custodial management companies to be chosen
While the current school year is about to come to an end, the Prescott Unified School District will be putting food service and custodial management companies in place for the upcoming school year. As part of its meeting at 5 tonight, the Prescott Unified School District Board will consider a request for proposal with the Southwest Foodservice Excellence Company. There’s also a contract renewal agreement checklist from the Arizona Department of Education that requires approval in order for the food service to receive reimbursements. The Board will also consider a request for proposal with the SSC Services for Education Company. This RFP was approved in May of last year. Both RFP’s can be renewed on an annual basis for up to 3 additional years. The Board meeting will be held in the District Office Board Room on Granite Street.
Yavapai County will formally acknowledge the termination of the lease for the Coors Event Center at the Yavapai County Fairgrounds in Prescott Valley. In 2001, Yavapai County entered into a lease with the Fair Association for the Center. In 2013, the Association’s interest in the lease was assigned to the Prescott Valley Race Course Company, which later filed bankruptcy. In April 2015, the company sent notice terminating the Center lease, which the County agreed to, allowing them to take possession of the property off Highway 89A. The bankruptcy court has just approved the sale of the Fairgrounds and racetrack property. In order to complete the sale, the trustee assigned to the bankruptcy has requested formal acknowledgement from the County that the prior lease was terminated.
The Yavapai County Board of Supervisors will consider approval of this item during its meeting at 9 tomorrow morning at the County Administrative Services Building on Fair Street in Prescott.
