Superior Town Council makes plans for 4th of July

Superior Sun

It has been years since the town of Superior has not had fireworks, we would like to have a wonderful old fashioned Fourth of July in Superior with free food, activities and fireworks. The Town of Superior is soliciting donations to help fund a Fourth of July celebration on the fifth of July for the families and children in Superior. The Town of Superior’s pool will be open on the fourth and fifth of July with free swimming. The minimum cost for a fireworks display is $5,000. If there is something you could help provide for the Fourth of July celebration, volunteering, providing food, water and any donations please contact the town hall at 520-689-5752. Mayor Valenzuela said, “Please help us provide a truly fun Fourth of July for Superior.”

The Resolution Copper tour to view the site and meet with dignitaries from Senator McCain’s and Senator Flake’s office was very informative for Mayor Valenzuela and Councilmember Tameron. After the tour Councilmember Aguilar joined the Mayor and Councilmember Tameron to meet with John Godec who handles a Community Working Group with Resolution Copper. Godec explained about the group and how they hope to help get answers to the public’s questions and concerns. Mayor Valenzuela said, “We will add to the next agenda to have a liaison to attend the Communtiy Working Group and the Town Council.”

There are two different companies, Native America and TetroTech, that are looking at properties in the Town of Superior and a proposal from both companies shall be forthcoming to the town council. Superior will be the home offices for both companies. This is exciting to have companies interested in the Town of Superior.

The consent agenda was approved consisting of the regular meeting minutes for May 15 and the blanket permit for Ginny Baltierra request of her daughter to attend FCCLA.

There was a discussion of APS and the updating of agreements. The Town of Superior owns 477 poles in the town and there are a lot of old wires hanging and could be a danger. This is something the town manager is going to look into, but the town would probably need to remove the old wires. The motion was made and approved to have APS streetlight pole use license agreement, streetlight maintenance and energy agreement.

A presentation was made regarding the Waste Water Treatment Plant Rehabilitation by Steve Wedwick and Ramesh Narasimham of NCS Engineering. The plant needs repairs structurally due to corrosion and there needs to be a back up with the plant so when certain components need repair. There needs to be a long-term waste water solution. The Preliminary Engineering Report (PER) will open the door for additional funding. There have been tours of the plant to evaluate what work needs to be done. Some of the improvements consist of inspection, repairs, recoat, service, influent screening and headwork. The work and construction would take about a year, so the Waste Water Treatment Plant should be up and running efficiently within two years. After the presentation and discussion it was approved and submit to PER and move forward.

The next regularly scheduled town council meeting is scheduled for June 19 at 7 p.m. There will be a planning and zoning meeting on June 12 at 6 p.m. Please take the time to attend, ask questions and listen to the town council.
