The Superior Town Council continues to work on making Superior a town that people will be proud to live in. The council tries to make the right decisions for the Town of Superior. Prior to the regularly scheduled meeting the town council met to have a study session regarding the budget.

Russell Johnson, from the People’s Health Care Connection LLC, gave a presentation and asked for the support of the town to add more services to the community. The People’s Health Care Connection provides case management, evaluation, assessment, diagnosis and mental health counseling for adults and children who have mental illnesses, substance abuse and HIV intervention. The purpose of these services is to help develop and maintain their capacity to achieve their goals and live as independently as possible in the community. Individual support planning is available for each person to provide the opportunity to identify their goals with supportive assistance and develop a plan to achieve them. Cenpatico of Arizona holds the contract to manage the behavioral health care services for Pinal and several other counties in Arizona. The People’s Health Care Connection will be working with Cenpatico. The Superior Town Council was pleased to have the interest of this business.

A public hearing was held and a discussion about the approval of a catering business and culinary class in an R1-6 (Urban Residential) Zone District for Albert Archer. The town council approved the new catering and culinary class business.

The town council approved Superior Fire Chief Todd Pryor for the re-enrollment of the standard contract working with AHCCCS.

Prior to the regularly scheduled town council meeting the council met about the town budget. The tentative approval of the Fiscal Year 2014-2015 budget setting the expenditures limit of $6,425,539 was approved. Town Manager Gaston said, “Even though we are in debt we are making our payroll and keeping up to date on all our bills, we are moving ahead in the right direction.”

Dave Richins representing Resolution Copper generously donated a $10,000 check for the Superior Fire Works Display that will be held on July 5. The show should last between 35 and 45 minutes. Mayor Valenzuela said, “This will be the largest fireworks show that Superior has ever had.” The Sundt Corporation will be donating food and there have been other generous donors. The town council is very grateful for all the help!

The next regularly scheduled town council meeting is scheduled for July 2 at 6 p.m. The July 17 meeting has been cancelled. The mayor encourages everyone to attend, ask questions and listen to what is going on with the Town of Superior.
