Mayor Kell Palguta, Town of Prescott Valley

“Hello everyone. I hope this issue of Prescott Living finds you all in good spirits and good health. I cannot believe that 2021 is just about over, and we will be turning the page on yet another year in Prescott Valley.

“I am excited because I can, without a doubt, say that the year 2022 will be amazing for our community. We hope that you will take time to visit us in Prescott Valley during the holidays and into the new year to enjoy all of the great events our community has to offer.”
