Supervisors to move Williamson Valley Road paving forward

The Yavapai County Board of Supervisors is scheduled to meet at 9 a.m. Monday at the Yavapai County Administrative Services Verde Valley Complex, 10 S. 6th St. in Cottonwood.

Supervisors are expected to award a contract to Sunland Asphalt and Sealcoating in the amount of $1,327,300 for the Williamson Valley Road Pavement Rehabilitation. The project covers the area from Outer Loop Road to Talking Rock Ranch along Williamson Valley Road.

The project consists of improvements to shoulder work and pullout areas as well as adding an asphalt concrete pavement overlay to the road, according to county Public Works Assistant Director Mike Willett.

With more than 2,000 vehicles traveling the road per day, the project will "improve the longevity of the roadway pavement by adding structure to the existing roadway and reducing maintenance costs," Willets said. "The finished roadway will provide a smoother finished surface."

Construction along the roadway is estimated to begin around Sept. 30. According to the staff report, the project is estimated to take 16 days to complete. Road crews will be working 10-hour days to complete the project on time.

Motorists driving along Williamson Valley Road may experience delays as long as 15 minutes, Willet said. A pilot vehicle will be guiding cars through the construction area.

The project will be paid for out of the Regional Roads Capital Improvement Fund, Willett said.

Supervisors also will consider approving the donation of two wood chippers to the Prescott Fire Department and the Central Yavapai Fire District at Monday's meeting.

The departments have been using chippers in their wildland urban interface hazardous fuels mitigation program. The chippers are serviceable, but are approaching the end of their county service life. The county does not plan to replace the chippers.

The donation of the chippers will save the county approximately $22,000 in general fund money that is spent annually on maintenance.

During the meeting, Emergency Management Coordinator Denny Foulk will be presenting citations and plaques to people who helped with the Doce and Yarnell Hill wildfires.

Community members can also view the meeting through teleconference at the Yavapai County Administration Services Building at 1015 Fair St. in Prescott.

Also on the agenda, supervisors are expected to:

• Approve the acceptance of a 2011 motor home seized by Prescott Area Narcotics Task (PANT) for use by the Sheriff's Office as a mobile command post.

• Consider a street name change from South Vista Drive to Vista Drive in the Camp Verde area.

• Proclaim October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month in Yavapai County.

• Approve the appointment of Dave Grondin to the Planning and Zoning Commission representing District 3 beginning Sept. 16, 2013, and ending Sept. 16, 2015.
