In 2018 the Queen Creek Independent covered the ins and outs of the community, offering reporting of local issues.
Issues like what was new with Johnson Utilities, preparing for what’s next after a 21-year drought, preventing suicides, planning for the 70-square-mile San Tan Valley, the latest on annexations and the boundaries of new schools.
The Queen Creek Independent in print and online at queencreekindependent.com also offered a salute to the accomplishments of local students, the outcome of local elections, business news and your scenic photo submissions. And there was watchdog reporting too, such as how often the council meets in closed-door executive sessions, town and school district budgets increasing funding set aside for pensions, and sheriff’s office and fire department response times.
