Road improvements in PV

The Prescott Valley Town Council meets at 5:30 tonight to consider a change to a road improvement project. According to Public Works Director Norm Davis, the initial project scope for the Long Look Drive expansion at Glassford Hill Road stops at Lone Cactus Drive. However, it has been revealed an existing home driveway access matching the future Long Look widening would be problematic. Dava and Associates has explored options for roadway design solutions and determined that adding to the work scope of the current Glassford Hill Intersection Improvement Project would save money by eliminating removal of temporary construction improvements. The Earth Resources company has agreed to construct the needed additional roadway work at the prices received for the original bid contract. The change to the construction contract totals 113 thousand dollars. The Town Council meeting will be held in the Library Auditorium on Civic Circle.

Madeline Connolly found alive and safe.

A 23 year old woman who recently lived in Prescott has been found after being lost a week in the Montana wilderness. Madeline Connelly, a native of the Chicago area and her dog were hiking in the Great Bear Wilderness 1 week ago when they got lost. Family members went looking for her and found her car at a trailhead near Glacier National Park 2 days later. After an extensive search, Connelly was found yesterday in a heavily wooded area. Connelly calls her experience quite the ordeal, especially with the bad weather that hit the area. Connelly was reunited with her parents at Glacier National Park Headquarters. She had stopped in Montana to visit before traveling to Alaska, where she has a job managing a bakery.
