Quartzsite, AZ – During their regular meeting on Tuesday, January 22, 2019, the Quartzsite Town Council unanimously approved a Resolution adopt- ing Quartzsite as the "Rock Capital of the World" for the Offi cial Town Slogan. Over nine years ago, on December 8, 2009, then Mayor Wes Huntley is- sued a Mayoral Proclamation declaring Quartzsite, Arizona as the Rock Capital of the World. With the new Resolution, the whole council has now ap- proved the Offi cial Slogan. Quartzsite Mayor Norm Simpson read the 2019 Resolution, stating, "The Town of Quartzsite, Ari- zona has determined that marketing of the Town is best accomplished with a consistent slogan to brand the Town in its offi cial documents and corre- spondence." In 2009, then Mayor Huntley stated similarly, "The Town of Quartzsite will continue to promote the community, and support those ideas and projects that grow the distinction of our com- munity as the 'Rock Capital of the World!" The new Resolution states, "The Town of Quartzsite, Arizona is widely known for its rock, gem, and min- eral shows which bring numerous visitors and part- time residents to the Town each year." In 2009 Huntley stated, "The residents of Quartzsite, Ari- zona are proud of our rich history of gold mining, prospecting and love of rocks. Each year buyers and sellers from around the world are attracted to our region for the fi nest rocks, gems and minerals." The Council also authorized the Town Manager and the Town Attorney to take all necessary and appropriate actions to provide legal protections for the Offi cial Town Slogan, including trademark reg- istration. Also, during the same meeting, Quartzsite Town Council members approved a Resolution adopting an Offi cial Town Seal, which is very simi- lar to the older seal. Mark Goldberg redesigned the older version of the "Q" Seal, improving the quality of the colors and the text. Now the Town Seal and Town Slogan are offi cial.
