The Taylor Town Council met in special session June 19 to discuss potential litigation with Hancock Cattle Co., LLC. Though Eddie Hancock was not present to represent Hancock Cattle, the council went into executive session for nearly an hour. Upon returning to regular session, the council unanimously agreed to table the item.
The council also approved participation in a Northern Arizona Council of Governments sign inventory project.
Acting Public Works Director Jeremy Peters explained that the state has mandated a sign inventory by all cities and towns due to the legal changes regarding height, color and type of signs. NACOG will do an inventory of all signs, giving the town a list of signs that need to be replaced.
The council then held a budget work session, with presentations made on behalf of the Silver Creek Senior Center, the Taylor-Shumway Heritage Foundation, the Beautification Committee, the Snowflake-Taylor Chamber of Commerce and the Snowflake-Taylor Tourism Committee.
