Mayor Phil Goode: “First, I would like to wish all our readers a Happy New Year. With the return of our traditional holiday events and gatherings, Prescott shined as Arizona’s Christmas City once again. As we look ahead to the new year, and my first full year in office, there are many priorities for City Council.
Goode says he’s forming three new ad hoc committees. They are:
• A Water Policy Advisory Committee to provide input for the Water Issues Subcommittee and for Council on the critical issues of water policy.
• A Charter Amendments Review Advisory Commission to review possible proposed changes to the City Charter. Any recommended changes to the charter would be put to a vote of the people.
• A General Plan Advisory Committee to help update the General Plan in 2025. This committee will help advise Council on proposed updates.
“As I have stated since my campaign, I ran on several critical issues for our city, including managing our water resources, transparency in government and maintaining responsible growth.
“The Water Policy Advisory Committee is separate from the Water Issues Subcommittee, which is made up only of Council members. This Advisory Committee will consist of citizens who will provide input for Council to monitor our water policy and its impact on our community.”
