CAMP VERDE - A few items up for discussion on Wednesday's Camp Verde Town Council meeting agenda are updates on the new Camp Verde Community Library, the guinea fowl of Jordan Meadows, and an update on the flooding project in Verde Lakes.

Camp Verde residents Sharon Massey and Dee Jenkins are scheduled to give a presentation to council on the guinea fowl in their neighborhood.

The intention of this presentation is to educate council on the birds and to get an amendment to the ordinance that restricts the guineas from running wild within town limits.

Mayor Charlie German said he and a few council members are unaware of what has been going on in Jordan Meadows due to the League of Arizona Cities and Towns meeting that they attended two weeks ago, and the 10-day cleanup operation in Verde Lakes taking up most of their time.

German said there will be no voting on the guinea situation on Wednesday, but the meeting will be a chance to educate everyone on the issue.

Possible solutions will be brought up at a later meeting by Town Manager Russ Martin, and then council will vote what to do. There will be a possible authorization to approve Townsite Phase III Road Construction Project in the amount of $309,128.

The library might be closed Oct. 12 for an all-staff training day if approved and open on Saturday Oct. 10 for Fort Verde Days. CVCL Director Kathy Hellman will update council on the construction of the new library. The grant that funded the cleanup from the flood in Verde Lakes will be discussed and council will be updated on what happened during the construction of the wash. Council member Jackie Baker will update council on the 2015 Election Ballot to the Board of Trustees and the Annual Members' Meeting.

Camp Verde Town Council is meeting Wednesday, Sept. 2 at 6:30 p.m. The meeting will be held in council chambers, located at 473 S. Main St., room 106.
