Prescott Valley government to mark town's 35-year anniversary
The Daily Courier

PRESCOTT VALLEY - The town government will celebrate 35 years of incorporation by inviting all past mayors and council members to a program during the council meeting Thursday evening.

The program will include a slide presentation by the Prescott Valley Historical Society highlighting Prescott Valley's milestones since incorporating Aug. 21, 1978. Former mayors will make statements; the Song of the Pines Sweet Adelines quartet will sing "Happy Birthday"; and cake will be served.

The event will take place Aug.22, instead of the exact anniversary date, because the council meets Thursdays, said Town Manager Larry Tarkowski. The council meeting starts at 5:30 p.m. and takes place in the library auditorium, 7401 E. Civic Circle.

While town officials will mark the event in August, the Prescott Valley Chamber of Commerce honors the town's longevity as a municipality by conducting the Prescott Valley Days carnival and parade in June.

Just 35 years to screw things into the ground financially, I can't wait to see what the future brings. The blind loyalty the people in this town have towards their elected officials is astounding , never before have I seen this kind of loyalty to total incompetence since maybe congress. Many times the facts have been laid out to the populous of PV, and still they haven't run these ........ out on a rail. I guess ignorance is bliss.

They can all stand around and pat each other on the back for a job well done, but please no talk of $200 million in bond debt, the bankrupt fairgrounds, Tim's Toyota center and it's lawsuits, Also let's not talk about developer tax money agreements nor that $29 million dollar rust bucket library. By all means let's get these guys together in a room , but let's not talk facts let's, talk rose colored glasses fiction, and eat cake. It is the Prescott Valley way, right little larry. I have an Idea let's erect a statue of these guys, they are great with statues.

I hope they pay respect to the first Mayer of PV Richard Addis. I have total respect for this man and even though he is not with us anymore he deserves to be honored!

As proud residents of Prescott Valley, we want to express our sincere thanks to all responsible for taking a dusty piece of lonesome valley land 35 years ago and transforming into the great town we all know today as Prescott Valley.

We look forward to the bright future of this wonderful place to live!
