Bill's Newscast: New Judge Pro Tem for Yavapai County Featured

Yavapai County has a new Judge Pro Tem.

New meeting place for PUSD Board

The Prescott Unified School District Board meets in its new location at the former Washington Traditional School on Gurley Street to consider getting staff members in place for the next school year. As part of its meeting at 5 tonight, the Board will consider approving the issuance of contracts and agreements to eligible staff members. Superintendent Joe Howard says contracts and agreements are traditionally issued no later than the last day of school. As part of the District’s proactive budgeting process, contracts are distributed as early as possible to consider retention and recruiting as open positions are confirmed. Howard adds this year, depending on the possibility of additional budget decisions from the Governor and the Legislature, there may be a second contract brought before the Prescott Unified School District Governing Board.

CAFMA Crews Kept Busy This Weekend

Central Arizona Fire crews had a busy weekend. Crews had been dispatched to a structure fire off Rolling Hills Road Sunday night. The fire had started while the homeowners were cooking on a barbecue grill. It spread quickly from the porch and into the home. According to Fire Marshall Rick Chase, all occupants were able to get out safely but the home is a total loss. Firefighters worked for several hours and had to use water tenders. No injuries have been reported. While crews were still on scene, another fire was reported on Las Palmas Drive. Heavy smoke was showing from the attic and vents of the home. All residents got out safely and the fire was put out. Damage has been contained to the chimney chase and a small area around it. The cause is under investigation. On Friday afternoon, crews responded to a fire behind the Prescott Valley Wal-Mart store. They were able to quickly knock down the fire that had burned 1 acre of grass and brush. The cause is being labeled as suspicious and is under investigation.

Get rid of that slash & create defensible space

Yavapai County residents will have many opportunities to get rid of slash around their homes at no charge. The annual brush, branches, grass, leaves and yard trimmings drop-off program is available at Yavapai County transfer stations as of Sunday and running through June 1st. The slash drop-off will be held during normal business hours. Items that won’t be accepted include lumber, stumps, roots, cactus, metal and garbage. This program is for residential use only and commercial loads won’t be accepted.

The Board of Supervisors is urging all residents to take advantage of this program as you create defensible space around your property. For transfer station locations and hours, visit yavapai.us.

New Judge Pro Tem for Yavapai County

Yavapai County officially has a new Judge Pro Tem. Christopher Kottke was sworn in at the Yavapai County Courthouse Friday afternoon. Kottke was one of 20 people to apply for the position, which had been vacated by Judge John Napper’s appointment to Division 2 of the Superior Court. His appointment became effective on January 1st. Kottke says it took a long time to get to his new position. Napper was also sworn in by Presiding Judge David Mackey and a presentation of a portrait of Arizona Court of Appeals Judge Jennifer Campbell was presented. Campbell’s husband, Arizona Supreme Court Vice Chief Justice Robert Brutinel says he’s pleased his wife’s picture will be joining his on the wall of Mackey’s courtroom. Campbell was appointed Yavapai County Superior Court Judge in 2011. She was sworn to the Court of Appeals last August. Brutinel had served the Superior Court from 1996 to 2010.
