Chino Valley residents can learn about Town operations as part of a Community Outreach meeting at 6 tonight.
Mayor Daryl Croft and Town Manager Cecilia Grittman are scheduled to participate in the meeting, which will be held in the Community Center on Road 1 East. Open discussion will take place on why the town does what it does, how and why decisions are made and how you can be involved in the decision making process. Attendees can also make suggestions or submit ideas on how to make Chino Valley a better place to live. The Community Outreach is hosted by the Town and the Chino Valley Area Chamber of Commerce. At 11:30 tomorrow morning, the Chamber will hold a Lunch and Learn session. This month’s topic is “Delighting Your Customers,” presented by SCORE Northern Arizona. Lunch and Learn will be held at the Chino Valley Days Inn on Fletcher Court.
Project Child Safe is doing its part to promote firearm safety in Chino Valley and Paulden.
The organization has donated one thousand cable gun locks to the Chino Valley Unified School District. The locks are free to parents and guardians, staff or any other community members. If you would like a lock, you can pick one up at the front office of any of the District schools or at the District Office, located on Center Street. District officials say you can have up to 5 free locks and there is no paperwork to fill out and no questions will be asked. If you want your child to bring home a cable gun lock, call the front office of your child’s school to let them know to send one home with your child. Project Childsafe has worked with the National Shooting Sports Foundation, firearms distributor Davidson’s and firearms manufacturer Ruger on this effort.
A chemical spill in Prescott Valley has sent one person to the hospital.
Yesterday morning Central Arizona Fire and Medical Authority crews responded to Superior Industries, located on Superior Lane in Prescott Valley. One worker was taken to Yavapai Regional Medical Center East for treatment after being exposed to the chemical spill. The Prescott Area Hazardous Materials Response Team, which is comprised of members of the Authority and the Prescott Fire Department, were called in to deal with the spill and remove the hazard. The incident commander worked with the onsite facility supervisors to devise a plan. Entry and back-up teams were assembled so the spill could be taken care of by response team hazmat technicians. Employees on site were moved to other areas of the building where they could safely continue working. The spill was contained and the hazard properly disposed of.
