By October, visitors will be getting their first look at Arizona’s newest state park, Rockin’ River Ranch.

During an open house hosted by Arizona State Parks and Trails June 1 at Camp Verde Middle School, officials gave community members an opportunity to visualize what might exist on the property, which sits along more than a mile of the Verde River in Camp Verde’s Salt Mine region.

A fire early May 29 left three vehicles burnt out at the Park Place lot.

Located at the southeast corner of State Route 89 A and S. 10th Street in Cottonwood, Park Place offers its lot to owners wishing to display their vehicles for sale. A fee is charged daily, weekly or monthly for each space.

The roundabout at Industrial Drive and State Route 260 is finished, almost a month earlier than originally projected by Arizona Department of Transportation.

According to ADOT Public Information Officer Ryan Harding, paving took place from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. from May 30 through June 1, working with traffic as the pavement arrived and was applied to the roadway.

If you’re walking around Cottonwood or Camp Verde and you come across a K-9 officer and his four-legged partner, feel free to ask if you can pet him or her.

The dog, that is.

Each year, the cities and towns of the Verde Valley approve budgets that are, generally speaking, optimistic.

The reason for this is that Arizona has enacted transparency laws requiring cities and municipalities to account for all potential revenues and expenditures.

If adopted, the Town of Camp Verde’s 2018 budget will reduce funding for the Camp Verde Marshal’s Office by 10 percent and increase Animal Control’s budget by 2 percent.

For 2018, CVMO requested $2,377,500, a 5 percent reduction from 2017’s adjusted budget of $2,512,520.

City Manager Russ Martin came back with a recommended budget of $2,273,305, a 10 percent reduction from 2017.

Ever wanted to know what firefighters do besides help civilians and putting out fires? I decided to spend the day with the men of Verde Valley Fire District Station 31 to know what really goes on when they aren’t out risking their lives for citizens.

Accessing Yavapai College’s online coursework and educational resources just got easier for Camp Verde residents. On May 9, the Yavapai Collge District Governing Board unanimously approved an intergovernmental agreement between the college and the Town of Camp Verde to provide laptops to Yavapai College students at the Camp Verde Community Library.

According to a press release from the college, the agreement from an “initiative to enhance college access for areas of the district where Yavapai College does not have existing facilities.”
