Prescott Mayor Phil Goode discussed several topics in his updates on Facebook providing important information for the residents of Prescott, Arizona.
Here is the update for July 18, 2022:
The main topic of conversation here at City Hall has been the discovery that two of the city wells at the airport tested positive for PFA levels that exceeded the Environmental Protection Age ncy’s (EPA) new Health Advisory Levels. The other airport well tested showed no trace of PFAs.
I think there’s been a lot of concern about the EPA Health Advisory Limits that have been published; what they mean, whether they’re substantiated and evidence based or how they will impact the water quality in our city to make sure that the members of the public realize we have a very, very safe water system and water quality.
We test our water regularly. I’ve been advocating that those test results be posted on our city council website, so people can freely look at what those standards are and what our levels are. We have been very proactive and monitoring our water quality standards.
The original EPA Health Advisory Level standard for these PFAs was for 70 parts per trillion combined. On June 22, 2022, the EPA abruptly changed it to .004 ppt for PFOA levels and .02 for PFOS levels. That is a greater than 99.994% reduction.
Quite frankly, this new EPA advisory really caught us off guard. I think it caught the entire nation off guard. When you look at the previous standards that had been published, we were far ahead of those minimum standards.
During the Town Hall I hosted on Wednesday, July 13th, we brought in the managers in our water quality department so that they could address your concerns, answer your questions, clarify the situation and make sure that the community understands that our water quality and our water delivery systems have not been materially compromised; we are reacting as quickly and rapidly as we are capable of. If you were not able to view the Town Hall on Wednesday, we have provided a link below so that you can watch it now.
My educational background and my professional experience is such that I am a university-trained biologist, with an academic minor concentration in chemistry with over 30 years of experience working in medical devices and supplies including a lot of clinical standards being exposed to high-level, evidence-based studies. Having the ability to critically look at the evidence to be able to justify public policy is something I have a lot of experience with, and the ability to look critically at some of these issues that are brought forward to us.
Also on Wednesday, we had an impromptu meeting with the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality earlier in the day to brief us on the latest up-to-date information.
In the meantime, here is what we are doing to address this situation:
The most important thing for the City residents to understand is that our water is very clean and safe. There is NO immediate health risk, and there is no need to use an alternative water supply. If you have specific concerns, please consult your primary care doctor.
I want to thank our Public Works Department for being proactive and responsive. Our City is in good hands.
I also want to thank our residents for their support and understanding as we respond to this situation. I promise you that the City’s water safety is always a top priority.
During our last council meeting on Tuesday, July 12th, we heard a moving presentation from the Sons of Union Veterans in recognition of the Memorial Day 2022 Observance and service at the Citizens Cemetery. I want to thank them for sharing with us.
We also set the new City Property Tax Levy for the Fiscal Year 2023. I am happy to report that the tax rate has gone down, and is one of the lowest in the areas. We are committed to using your tax dollars wisely and keeping your taxes as low as possible.
I would like to take a moment to acknowledge the resignation of Councilwoman Jessica Hall, effective July 25, after a very short time in office. Her resignation letter did not include any reason for her decision, and I will not speculate about that. I wish her well in her future endeavors.
The council must now begin the process of filling the vacancy for the term set to expire in November of 2025. At the next council meeting on July 26, we will review the two options available to us as per the City Charter for filling the vacant seat. One option is to appoint someone to the seat until the city election next year. The other option is to appoint until the end of that full council term in 2025.
Once Council has made a decision about the options, we will notify the public of qualification and begin the process of accepting applications for the position.

Who is Prescott National Forest wildfire spotter, Aundrea Romero?

PRESCOTT, Ariz. - At the tip-top of a dusty and rock-covered road, an old wooden tower stands on steel stilts at just over 8,000 feet elevation.
Built in 1933 on Mount Union, the tower looks down on the ponderosa pines from the tallest peak in the Prescott National Forest, and up there all alone is Aundrea Romero.
"It’s very relaxing if you can handle the solitude. Sometimes people think they can, and they really can’t. So it does test you. Because you’ve really got to hang out with yourself a lot," Romero says.
She's a wildfire spotter from sun up to sun down, six days a week, looking down on the forest of pines which on a clear day means 30 miles in any direction.
"I keep my head on a swivel. I’m not constantly looking for smoke, but doing a more thorough check at least every half hour," Romero explained.
Perching on her pedestal comes with a lot of perks. Fresh air, amazing views, plus plenty of peace and quiet.
It, of course, also comes with a lot of responsibility.
Romero is credited with first spotting the Crooks Fire in April. It happened on her second day on the job.
"As bad as the Crooks Fire got, if it hadn’t been caught sooner, it could’ve been way worse," she said.
There are four towers strategically placed across the forest, open from about April through October, the peak of wildfire season, because spotting a fire is the first line of defense.
"We want people to feel safe in the woods when they are recreating. I know that someone is out here in case something happens like a fire," says District Assistant Fire Management Officer, Josh Nuttall.
When Romero sees smoke, she measures the distance and degree using a spinning steel plate and then finds the same spot on a more modern map hanging from the ceiling. She radios dispatch, describing what she sees and where she sees it.
"The best way is better safe than sorry. At no point is anyone going to be upset if it turns out to be a campfire or nothing at all," she said.
Things can get a little lonely up in the tower, so Romero passes the time with books and knitting when strong winds aren’t swaying the tower. When there are lightning strikes, she rushes to a lightening proof chair.
"This is supposed to make sure I don’t get fried," she said.
This is Romero's first year on the job, and it started out with a bang. Now, she's settling in.
Someone to watch over Arizona, because where there is smoke, there is fire.

After months of review, Yield Crowd's platform is bolstered by parent Olson Capital Investments' new acquisition
LAGUNA HILLS, Calif., July 20, 2022 (Newswire.com) - Olson Capital Investments is a private real estate investment firm owned by Obin and Amariah Olson. Yield Crowd is a portal to buy real estate-backed YIELD tokens on the blockchain. After months of review, Olson Capital Investments just acquired the Prescottonian, a 121-room Best Western-flagged hotel in Prescott, Arizona.
Commenting on their new acquisition, principal co-founder Amariah Olson stated, "We are excited to finally acquire this property. The property is stabilized and in excellent condition, and we were able to secure it at an attractive cap rate basis. We intend to hold the property for cash flow and appreciation. There is also some upside in increasing occupancy, which we intend to capitalize on."
This is the Olsons' fourth acquisition within a year, and the second of two target acquisitions they are making from the sale of 105 apartments in Dallas, Texas. Canyon Bank provided the senior debt on the property. Jon Grantham at Colliers, a global real estate brokerage firm, brokered the deal, and Tyler Waller at Marcus Millichap capital markets advisory team helped close the senior debt.
"After extensive review of the market, we gravitated towards Arizona because of its attractive climate, jobs, and population growth. Prescott makes an affordable vacation getaway from Phoenix, which we believe this hotel will continue to service," stated Amariah Olson.
This acquisition will help bolster Olson Capital's subsidiary Yield Crowd, which issues tokens backed by corporate bonds on the Stellar blockchain. Investors from all over the world can diversify into U.S. real estate assets and freely buy and sell to each other on the Decentral Exchange at yieldcrowd.com.
The Olsons have completed over 22 real estate investments in Office, Residential, Multifamily, Hotel, and Retail, totaling over $80 million in transactions, which they have privately financed with their own equity and institutional debt. YIELD tokens are currently only available to non U.S. investors only.
