You may have noticed that we jumped around a little in the agenda to make sure we had time to further discuss the commissions restructuring. The Council Executive Report will be added to the agenda of the next Work Session since we ran out of time during yesterday's meeting. Tonight is the grand reopening of the Domingo Paiz Soccer Fields at 5:30. I hope to see there!

As always, please contact me at Carolyn.Umphrey@SierraVistaAZ.gov with any comments or questions. I love hearing from you!
