Don’t Mess with Mother Nature

A quick and violent storm shook Lake Montezuma and Rimrock Sunday 8/23/2015, leaving uprooted trees, branches, and downed power lines behind it.  Our emergency preparedness was tested, with winners and losers.  See this writeup about emergency notifications in the Beaver Creek eNews.  Nice job and a huge thank you to everybody who worked late and early to get the lights back on while we stayed safe.

Beaver Creek 4th of July

1 Comment
A great time was had by all at the  July 4th Beaver Creek Parade. The parade left the Sycamore Park area in Lake Montezuma at 9:00 AM and traveled south on Montezuma Avenue past the Village Square. Grand Marshals Pastor Ken and Leeza Miller presided over a fun family ceebration of Independence Day. Parade entrants (walkers, animals, vehicles, floats) put on a great show. The festivities and pancake breakfast was in Rollins Park at the Lake Montezuma Village Square. The BC Kiwanis Duck Race on Wet Beaver Creek featured a flotilla of feisty rubber ducks who paddled madly for the finish line. Congratulations to Carol Keeton, Kiwanis Event Coordinator, and all who helped make this a great event.

Dropped Residential Dog Limit

Yavapai County Drops Residential Dog Limit Proposal, 4/3/15
Yavapai County Proposed Animal Ordinance H15016–WITHDRAWN   

The presentations on the proposed Yavapai County animal ordinance change to limit dogs to five per single family residence have been cancelled.  Yapavai County Development Services is not going forward with this proposal.  The scheduled meeting at the Montezuma Rimrock Fire Station for April 22nd has been cancelled.   The proposed ordinance will not be on the Lake Montezuma POA agenda for Monday, April 6.

At this time Yavapai County intends to utilize a more positive application of current codes on property management and health and sanitation for animal hoarding situations.  Commercial puppy breeders located on residential property are already required to have use permits which will be enforced.  Complaints about vicious animals will be directed to the Yavapai Sheriff’s Office.
