Chino Valley Review

The highlight of the evening at the Chino Valley Town Council on Sept. 24 was the barking and tail wagging of the town's newest employee, Gus. A two-year-old trained police dog, Gus made his first public appearance with Officer Mike Pereda, Police Chief Chuck Wynn, and Vice Mayor Daryl Croft, as they accepted a $10,000 donation from Sturm, Ruger and Company, Inc. Prescott's Gun Division, which made the purchase of the new police K-9 possible.

"They usually start training them at two years old," said Pereda, who was handling the playful new Gus in the council chambers. "Our old dog Gage is probably eight or nine, it was time to get a younger dog."

Other topics covered at the council meeting included the rampant weeds sprouting after the summer monsoons.

"Weeds, weeds, and more weeds, they're a terrible eyesore," said resident Marti Klein. "This comes up every year. We've spent thousands and thousands of dollars for consultants. We spent $126,000 for a general plan. Having served on the committee, I can say we need to return to basics. We cannot attract people to Chino Valley.

The Council also spoke about the vacancies on many community advisory boards, including Parks and Recreation, Roads and Streets, Senior Center, Planning and Zoning, and the Board of Adjustment. Mayor Chris Marley invited the public to help Chino Valley by volunteering to serve, noting that applications can be picked up at the town council or downloaded from their website,
