The warming days we experienced this week will develop into showers possibly Saturday into Sunday with a possibility of snow on Monday and Tuesday. A steady drop in temperatures each day will occur with the highs of Friday in the low 50s to upper 30s on Tuesday. The lows will start in the low 30s and plummet to the low 20s in the beginning of the week.
Qualifying tax exemption or reduction application is due by the Navajo County assessor’s office on Feb. 29. Those who may qualify include widows, widowers and disabled persons or non-profit organizations if they meet certain criteria.
“An owner signing up for the first time must appear in person to sign all the appropriate documents in front of an assessor’s office staff member,” said Navajo County Assessor Cammy Darris.
“Staff members are available Monday through Friday at the assessor’s office in Holbrook.
“We also have special locations that we visit to make the process more convenient for our citizens. On Tuesdays, members of my staff visit several of the senior citizen centers in Navajo County in an effort to make the process more accessible,” Darris said.
Eligible property owners over the age of 65 are encouraged to apply for the Senior Property Valuation Freeze during this time as well. There are several qualifying factors, one of which is based on gross income. For a single property owner, the allowable income is $33,504, and for more than one owner, the allowable income is $41,880.
Representatives from the assessor’s office will be available from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., Feb. 8 at the Heber/Overgaard Senior Center.
The old bulletin boards at the Overgaard post office were removed some time ago to allow the post office building to be painted and maintained.
Since the old bulletin boards were quite worn and shabby, the chamber of commerce arranged to have them replaced and supplied the materials to make that happen.
Dennis Lofstedt donated his time and talent to construct the four new bulletin boards.
The new bulletin boards are covered with a hinged frame and Plexiglas window to keep out the rain and wind which often removed posted information.
The new bulletin boards are sponsored by local businesses or organizations that are responsible for monitoring the information posted and keeping the boards neat and tidy.
There are now four different bulletin boards. Two are designated for community events which will accommodate bulletins related to things happening around Heber/Overgaard that are sponsored by the chamber, churches, local organizations, schools and the like. The size of items posted is limited to 8-1/2-by-11 inches. Items are to be posted with push pins or similar fasteners. Tape of any kind cannot be used. Anything posted that does not conform to the rules posted above each bulletin board will be removed and destroyed daily.
One of the new bulletin boards is for posting notices of items for sale, garage sales, services available, business cards, etc. The size of items posted is limited to 5-by-7 inches to allow as many postings as possible. Items are to be posted with push pins or similar fasteners. Tape of any kind cannot be used. Items larger than 5-by-7 inches, or anything posted that does not conform to the rules posted above each bulletin board will be removed and destroyed daily.
The fourth new bulletin board is for community information and is used by the chamber of commerce. This bulletin board will contain information of interest to the general public like address and phone numbers of for instance, the fire department, water company, trash compactor, electric company, churches, local clubs and organizations. This bulletin board will be locked and is maintained by the chamber. For more information, contact the chamber of commerce at (928) 535-5777.
