Prescott Valley council to consider four grants for police department

PRESCOTT VALLEY - The Town Council will consider four grants for the police department that total $61,455 and other matters at its meeting Thursday.

Three of the grant authorizations come from the Governor's Office of Highway Safety and the fourth comes from the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance program.

The Governor's Office approved applications from the police department for three Highway Safety Plan Grant awards.

The first award is for $4,348 for accident investigation equipment.

The second is for $27,000 for drunken driving enforcement and education, and the third is for $18,536 and focuses on preventing and enforcing DUIs and "errant driving behaviors."

The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant amounts to $11,571 for buying emergency tactical trauma kits for police officers. It also will pay for designing and carrying out a records archive module.

Acceptance of the grant money requires approval from the council.

The council meeting begins at 5:30 p.m. in the Library Auditorium, 7401 E. Civic Circle.

Also on the agenda, in order, are:

• Certificates of appreciation to Julia Bowers and Kenneth Bowman for 10 years of employment.

• Certificate of appreciation to Allison Messerly for five years of employment.

• A plaque of appreciation to Sonya Liadis for serving on the Arts and Culture Commission.

• The second reading of an ordinance to grant the town clerk the power to revoke, cancel or not renew business licenses for businesses that are delinquent in remitting sales tax proceeds.

• An intergovernmental agreement with the Yavapai County Flood Control District to cover 100 percent of the costs of floodplain revision and storm-water mitigation studies. The agreement also would pay for the third phase of the Western Boulevard storm-water management improvement project. The agreement awards the town a total of $500,000.

• A request from the Utilities Department to spend about $361,224 to buy a combination sewer-cleaner.
