Dear Neighbors
We are so fortunate to be looking at another week of highs in the 80’s and lows in the 50’s. Such perfect October weather!! While on the subject of good things locally, the Beaver Creek Gasmart looks much better with its new tan & rust paint job. POBs (Pats on Back) to those who made the paint change possible.
Also, on the good news front. Yavapai County has begun a month-long project to improve the safety of our signs themselves and their use for those who observe them. Jon David, Signs & Pavement Markings Project Manager for Yavapai County Public Works, reports that “Crews are out working on a project in the Lake Montezuma/ Rimrock/ Mcguireville areas. The reason for the project is to change the sign mounting post from a U-channel type post which currently exists to a square post telespar type that is mounted in a concrete base. The new base and post comply with guidelines that we must follow, and it improves response time for signs that become damaged. We are also replacing around 400 street name signs in the area that do not comply with retro reflectivity standards. These types of projects have been ongoing in Yavapai County for the past few years.” More POB’s!
And now the ugly. A resident took a drive up the road past Sedona Sky School and while hiking found that people are dumping yard debris (tree limbs etc) and construction debris (broken cement blocks etc) in two different areas off the paved road and on the dirt side roads. Please utilize your burn permits for the slash and use the Camp Verde Transfer Station (the dump) or Grey Wolf for the construction waste. If possible and safe, report dumping in the surrounding forest to the Red Rock Ranger Station and on private property to YCSO.

Truck Fire–CC Fire & Medical at Work
At 2:40 PM on September 22 Copper Canyon Fire and Medical, Sedona Fire, and the Arizona Department of Safety were dispatched to a semi-truck vs. a semi-truck on I-17 MP 305 NB.  Upon arrival units found 2 semi-trucks one with minor damage and the other truck was fully involved with the fire spreading quickly to its load and into the forest.  Copper Canyon Fire and Sedona Fire immediately deployed both a fire attack and a medical crew to stabilize the scene.  Happy to report that no occupants or firefighters were injured.  I-17 was then shut down for approximately 3 hrs. as ADOT cleared the trucks form the scene.  The incident is still under investigation by DPS.
