Dear Neighbors
 
Last month was a little more interesting than most of us would like. Good news on February 20. The P&Z Commission voted NO to PPE which was a stress reliever to have that concluded for now. The day before, the Beaver Creek Golf Course & Ranch House fell out of escrow without completing purchase. Perhaps for the 8th time? So, the property ownership remains the same for now.
Tomorrow afternoon the BCCA Board will hear a presentation about the town house lots around Lake Montezuma and go over a report from our representatives on the Citizens’ Bond Advisory Committee. This committee will make a recommendation to the CCF&MD Fire Chief and Fire Board about whether to pursue a bond (property tax increase) to potentially add additional fire stations and equipment. Their next meeting is at 5 PM Monday evening in the Camp Verde Library. The public may attend.
On Friday, the Beaver Creek Preservation & Historical Society’s annual meeting is at the Rock School and will dedicate the new windows. Robert Estrada will give an update on his research about Lulu, an Apache Indian girl in the 1800’s. That afternoon in the BC Library is an opportunity to get Narcan training. There have been 3 overdoses in Rimrock since October, one was a youth. If you think that you might need to have this knowledge and treatment at hand, please read the flyer below and RSVP. Like CPR, you never know when this skill might be a lifesaver.
Later this month and in April the Census should be a priority for our area. Much funding for the school and other services is based on the collected information. Please help by responding. Also, there are still $16.50 jobs available. This paycheck will not affect any other sources of income. If interested, please call 1-800-JOB-2020 or apply online at
It’s still not too late to get Free help with your taxes at one of these sites. And a heads up about the Free Dumping this year. Appliances, tires, bagged trash, TV’s and old bicycles are accepted as usual. But slash, weed trimmings, is not accepted since the mulch pile is still smoldering from the fire.  Free dumping starts on 3/19.
