Bill's Roundup: Summer Concert Series

01 June 2011  
Time for summer fun! The Lynx Creek Cloggers start off tonight.

billcourthouse_2The Yavapai Humane Society is offering pre-owned cats for no money down this month. June is Adopt a Cat Month and the Humane Society is celebrating by waiving adoption fees on all cats 1 year old or older. These cats include a spay or neuter, microchipping and vaccinations. There are kittens under 6 months old available for 95 dollars and kittens ages 6 months to 1 year old for 75 dollars. Go to yavapaihumane.org to see all adoptable animals or stop by the shelter on Sundog Ranch Road or the Petsmart Adoption Center on Walker Road in Prescott. Humane Society officials have also announced they have received a significant, anonymous donation to help fund the Big Fix Program, which provides 25 dollar spay and neuters to pets of needy families and individuals.

The Yavapai County Board of Supervisors will conduct Redistricting Open Houses this week. Visitors can view 4 proposed maps that have been created by the County Redistricting Committee after considering 2010 Census population numbers, Federal requirements, public input from Open Houses held earlier this year and adopted redistricting criteria. Public input will be considered before the Board adopts a final map in August. Citizens are invited to visit anytime between 4 and 6 today at Oak Creek School on Purple Sage Road in Cornville and tomorrow at the Chino Valley Community Center on North Road 1 East.

The Downtown Summer Concert Series kicks off in Prescott tonight. The Lynx Creek Cloggers will perform for free at the Courthouse Plaza and will perform every other Wednesday after that. Every Thursday through September, local singers will vie for the title of Prescott’s Karaoke Idol. All events run from 6:30 to 8:30 pm.

The City of Prescott will hold a Code Enforcement Hearing at 2 this afternoon. Cases that will be heard include general accumulation of junk, trash and litter and weeds, bushes, trees and other vegetation at a residence in the 300 block of West Walker Street and general accumulation of junk, trash and litter; fences, screen and retaining walls and storage and maintenance of motor vehicles in the 700 block of north Walnut Street. The hearing will be held in City Council chambers on South Cortez Street.
