Camp Verde council regular session Wednesday

CAMP VERDE - At Wednesday's regular session, Camp Verde Town Council is expected to approve an ordinance that would officially repeal the 3 percent food tax approved by council in September.

Ordinance 2014-A400 would officially repeal Ordinance 2014-A398, which would have eliminated the exemption of food from the Town's general sales tax effective Dec. 1.

Also Wednesday, council could also approve both a resolution and an ordinance connected to a 21.87 acre parcel on N. Homestead Parkway. Resolution 2014-941 is a minor amendment to the General Plan that would re-zone Parcel 403-23-104F from residential to commercial. Ordinance 2014-A394 would amend the zoning map for the parcel to C-2.

The parcel, owned by Simonton Ranch, is located at the east end of North Homestead Parkway. Simonton Ranch owner Scott Simonton recently announced plans to donate a 9.28-acre portion of the parcel and sell an additional 6-acre portion of the parcel to the Verde Valley Archaeology Center.

Council will also consider the Sesquicentennial Committee's request to move forward with a plan to declare the area surrounding the downtown gazebo to be the Town's official Sesquicentennial Park. In 2015, Camp Verde will celebrate 150 years as an Anglo-American settlement.

The Nov. 19 regular session will be held at 6:30 p.m. in council chambers, 473 S. Main St. #106. A copy of the agenda is available at:
