Prescott residents can dispose of yard waste for free in June.
City of Prescott residents can get rid of their yard waste for free this month. The Solid Waste Division is offering drop-off of such items as limbs, branches and shrubs every Saturday from 8 AM to 4 PM at the Sundog Ranch Road Transfer Station. Solid Waste officials are asking you weigh in your vehicle with the brush and slash being brought in by traveling through the fee booth. Your vehicle will need to be weighed again after all the material has been dropped off. Be prepared to show proof of residency at the fee booth in the form of a driver's license or utility bill. The brush or slash shouldn't be bagged, no processed wood products will be accepted and all loads should be contained and covered. The drop-off is for City residential waste customers only. Commercial haulers will be charged a disposal fee.

Town officials say needed parts are on their way and repairs will likely take up to late Thursday to complete. The first day for an opening may be this Friday. Residents and visitors are asked to check chinoaz.net for updates. The swimming season is scheduled to run through August 14th.
A section of Willow Creek Road to close permanently
A closure is going into effect on Willow Creek Road. Starting next week, City of Prescott crews will connect the realigned Willow Creek Road from the Deep Well Ranch Road roundabout to Pioneer Parkway. To allow crews to construct the new road segment, Willow Creek will be permanently closed to through traffic with a detour route in place between Pioneer Parkway and Highway 89. Removal of the abandoned roadway is also part of this realignment project. Work is scheduled to take place for 3 weeks until traffic is shifted to the new realigned road. This week crews are hauling and placing a base course on this new segment of roadway in preparation for asphalt paving. Work hours are 7 am to 6 pm through Friday.
