The Paradise Valley Town Council may have been on break in recent weeks, but the elected officials are more than eager to return to work.
One council member says they even experimented with making a TikTok this summer to promote town safety, and reelection announcements for the August 2022 election are beginning to sprout.
The Town Council took July and most of August off — an annual opportunity to not only rest and recharge, but to dig deeper into issues and projects.
“After almost a decade of volunteering, I still look forward to returning from our summer break and seeing many of the working professionals and volunteers that are focused every day on keeping Paradise Valley the unique town that it is,” Councilman Scott Moore said.
Last spring, officials had hoped to have in-person meetings for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic, but Town Hall recently announced it was returning to former safety protocols.
Despite the pandemic, council members say they haven’t stopped seeking the best version of Paradise Valley.
“I continued my passion to work on initiatives and projects to preserve our iconic mountains and our unique quality of life,” said Councilwoman Julie Pace.
“I have been working with residents on two projects that are in process and will be rolled out soon that will have long-last, positive, visible impacts in the town.”
