Main Street, Quartzsite • 928-927-6310 Council seeks applicants for vacancy The Town Council of Quartzsite is soliciting applications with attached resumes and cover letters from the public for consideration for appointment to a vacant Town Council position. With the death of Council Member Carol Kelley last month, Quartzsite Town Council is seeking to fi ll the vacancy for the second time in the last year. Kelley died March 13. During their March 28th meeting, the Council approved to seek applications for the vacant position. Mayor Norm Simpson said, "Carol was the conscience of the council and will be missed by all of us." Pursuant to Arizona Revised Statutes § 9-235, the Council shall fi ll a vacancy until the next regularly scheduled Council election as the vacancy occurs more than thirty days before the nomination petition deadline. Qualifi cations for Council appointment are found in Arizona Revised Statutes, A.R.S. §9- 232(A), which states in pertinent part the following: "A. A person shall not be a member of a city or town council unless, at the time of the election [appointment], the person is eighteen years old, is a qualifi ed elector residing within the city or town at the time of the election [appointment], and has resided in the city or town for one year next preceding the election [appointment], . . ." All applications with attached resumes and cover letters shall be sub- mitted to the Quartzsite Town Clerk, Tina Abriani, for consideration by the Town Council. Acceptance of applications by the Town Clerk shall be discontinued as of 5:00 p.m. Tuesday, May 16, 2017. For more information contact Town Hall, 928-927-4333. Town Hall is located at 465 N. Plymouth Rd., Quartzsite, AZ 85346. Council Application can be downloaded at QPD plans Law Enforcement Torch Run The Quartzsite Police Department (QPD) has participated in the Law Enforcement Torch Run's in the past through La Paz County but has not truly been involved until 2014 when the Torch was carried through the town and contribu- tions were made. It is QPD's new motto of "Our Community, Our Commitment" has driven the depart- ment to be ac- tively involved in more community events of great importance such as the Law En- forcement Special Olympics Torch Run. The Department is asking the community, as a whole, to not only participate or contribute, but be aware of our special needs chil- dren locally who participate in this program. QPD will raise money in several ways to help contribute to this special and important program year-round. In the past, the depart- ment and contributing sponsors contributed over $800 within a few short weeks. Currently the police department will be taking orders and selling T-shirts for the event for only $20 to help raise some of the contributions for the Special Olympics. On May 3rd, QPD and any person willing to participate in the event will meet at the Quartzsite Fire Dept. at 70 E. Tyson parking lot at 6:30am where waivers will be signed. Participants can Walk, Run or Cycle the route. Our portion of the Run With the Torch will begin at the Fire Station at approximately 7am, heading south on Cen- tral Ave, east on Main Street and will end at ap- proximately 9am at the Chevron Gas Station at 41 Riggles Rd. Participants will be escorted by Police vehicles during the run. The Torch will then be handed off to the Maricopa County Sheriff's Offi ce so they can escort the Torch towards the City of Phoenix where the Special Olympics will be held. Breakfast will be provided after the run (location to be determined soon.) If any business or center wants to provide a location and service, please contact our coor- dinators.
