HUACHUCA CITY — Drivers were warned Thursday to watch their speed when driving in Huachuca City.
Police Chief Dennis Grey said during the Town Council meeting that the Police Department has received complaints about speeding recently and the police officers will be ticketing drivers going at least eight miles per hour over the speed limit.
Also during the meeting, Mayor George Nerhan congratulated the police for their contribution to the town having the lowest crime rate in the county last year. Nerhan also pronounced March 16-22 as “Safe Place Week.” Huachuca City safe places include the police station, library and Cochise County Children’s Center.
“This community collaboration program makes it possible for any youth to access help,” he said. “Safe Place connects youth to immediate health and safety and offers supportive services to both youth and their families.”
In other business, the council approved the first reading of two proposed ordinances.
One would add a pick-up fee for animals impounded by the town. The fee would be $25 for the first offense, $50 for a second offense and $75 for additional offenses.
The other ordinance would establish a Volunteer Animal Control Reserve, similar to the police department’s volunteer reserve officers, to assist animal control.
