Prescott Valley Town Council approves Loos Drive widening contract

Ken Hedler
Special to the Tribune

The Town Council marked the first meeting of the new year Thursday evening by awarding a contract to an engineering firm to design the second phase of the Loos Drive widening project.

The unanimous council decision entails paying Shephard Wesnitzer Inc., which has a Prescott office, up to $63,280. The project will involve widening Loos Drive from Hoffman Road to Navajo Drive, and adding a sidewalk and other improvements on the north side of Loos.

The town is using federal Community Development Block Grant money to pay for the project. Municipalities and other jurisdictions may use CDBG money for projects that benefit low- and moderate-income people, enhance public safety and eliminate blight.

"I drive that (stretch) on a regular basis, and at night it is scary," Councilwoman Lora Lee Nye said.

The council routinely approved the contract and other matters on the agenda.

Also at the meeting, the council:

• Listened to a presentation about Yavapai Big Brothers Big Sisters from Kathleen Murphy, its president and chief executive officer.

• Appointed Gary Roberts to the Planning and Zoning Commission for a term expiring Oct. 31, 2014. The council also presented him a certificate of appreciation for serving on the Board of Adjustments.

• Named Bruce Hertzog to the Building Board of Appeals to a term expiring Sept. 5, 2014. He did not attend the council meeting.

• Appointed Lucila Mangels to the Library Board of Trustees to a term that ends June 30, 2015.

• Tabled action on the final development plan for 30 proposed residential lots in the Granville subdivision because the developer needed to do additional work.

• Endorsed an application to the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation for water and energy efficiency grants. Utilities Director Neil Wadsworth said the town will use grant money, if approved, to replace water meters with smart meters.

• Approved the final development plan for Kachina Animal Hospital on an acre at the intersection of Henrickson Road and Highway 169.

• OK'd a contract for the police department to accept a grant award for $145,165, with a $48,389 town match, from the Governor's Office of Children, Youth and Families.

• Conducted an executive session to evaluate the performance of Town Manager Larry Tarkowski. Mayor Harvey Skoog said afterward that the council gave Tarkowski a positive review but did not give him a raise.
