Mechanic sues Prescott for city water to serve Overland Trail development

Proceeds from development would go to charity, he says

Local businessman Howard Mechanic points out the land along Overland Trail in the Government Canyon area where he hopes to develop a residential project. Because of the steep terrain, Mechanic says he plans to cluster the homes to preserve more of the parcel. In early December, Mechanic filed a complaint against the City of Prescott to acquire the water service to which he says the land is legally entitled. (Cindy Barks/Courier)
