Beaver Buggy Transport

Beaver Creek Transit, (the Beaver Buggy), celebrated its third anni­ver­sary on January 3, 2014. Three years of bringing free (dona­tions appreciated) transpor­tation to sen­iors and those of all ages with disa­bilities.  Thanks to all of the volun­teers and the LMPOA and BC Adult Center spon­sorship, the years have passed quickly. Now BCT is ready to move forward with phase 2, a link to the new Yavapai Apache Transit (YAT) which is linking to Cottonwood Area Transit (CAT). The new route created by the Nation connects much of the Verde Valley with a twice daily bus run. Fares are $1.25 or $3.00 for a one day pass.

Diana Bonnaha, YAT Director, hopes to start the service on April 14. When it is available, the BC Buggy will drop off and pick up riders in Camp Verde at the YAT bus stops. For these trips BCT will accept riders of all ages who are old enough not to require a car seat. The trips must be scheduled in advance by calling 592-2839 and ID is required for boarding. Passengers will be dropped at one of the Camp Verde stops in the 8:45 to 9:15 AM time slot and pick up in Camp Verde in the 3:30 to 3:50 PM time range. The YAT bus stops at Wal-Mart, Safeway, Cottonwood Library, and the VV Medical Center. Riders may transfer to CAT routes to go elsewhere.

Please extend your appreciation to Diana, Sonny Jackson, YAN Public Works Director, Robert Mills, YAN Grant Writer, and the Y-A Nation for sharing these opportunities with Beaver Creek residents. Also thank you to the BC Buggy’s current volunteer drivers who will get residents to the CV stops: Tony Testa, Nancy Rowland, Nancy Phillips, Ron Melcher, Margaret Holt, Dorcas Gerace, Rick Ayars, Janet Aniol. We could always use more drivers. Please call if you’re interested.

Flood Insurance

FLOOD INSURANCE

Are you without flood insurance and would like to get it? Do you currently have flood insurance, but your rates are very expensive? Did your homeowners’ policy insurance company cancel your flood insurance portion? Do you live in an area where run off coming from mesas and ridges and old washes are overflowing, and you are looking for insurance coverage? According to Brian Cosson, CFM, NFIP State Coordinator for the Arizona Department of Water Resources, “everyone is eligible to purchase flood insurance regardless of the age of the structure, because Yavapai County is in good standing with the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). Any structure that was permitted before August 19, 1985 is considered preFlood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) and is eligible for preFIRM rates. PreFIRM rates are approximately $400 per $100,000 in coverage. If the depth of flooding in an area is ‘only’ two (2) feet deep or so, an owner may only need $50,000 in structural coverage to cover the cost of carpet, drywall, cabinets, etc. The owner can also purchase contents insurance, which will increase the amount of the premium. Insurance can be obtained by contacting any insurance agent or by calling the National Flood Insurance Program at (800) 638-6620.”

Regarding the runoff areas Mr. Cosson states, “If the structure is located outside a Special Flood Hazard Area, the owner will most likely be eligible for the preferred risk policy, which can be as low as $250 a year.” Contact you insurance agency, then NFIP, to compare prices.

If you do not have insurance and would like to get it, contact a local agent AND the NFIP at the number above and compare prices. If you currently have insurance, contact your agent for the amount you are now paying, then call NFIP for their rate for the same coverage. You may get a better rate through NFIP. If your homeowners’ policy insurance company has dropped your flood insurance, contact another local agency, then contact NFIP and compare prices.
