Flagstaff City Council And County Board Of Supervisors Discuss Museum Fire Mitigation And More

The Flagstaff City Council held a joint work session with the Coconino County Board of Supervisors on Wednesday. One major topic was a look at flood risk from the Museum Fire in 2019. Researchers said that there was still high risk of flooding for the Sunnyside neighborhood and surrounding areas downhill from where the Museum Fire burned. The County discussed their mitigation plan, which will involve transporting sandbags into the area in the first few weeks of May and providing dumpsters to dispose of worn-out sandbags provided for mitigation last year. There will be community outreach on flood mitigation using social and traditional media, delivered in both English and Spanish. In addition, the city and county heard an update on the COVID-19 situation, which noted the new availability of walk-in appointments for COVID vaccines, as well as Flagstaff’s planned response to legalization of recreational marijuana.
