first MCSO Addresses Burglary Concerns HELPFUL HINTS The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office would like to inform residents that several vehicle burglaries

and thefts have occurred over the past few months. Most of these crimes have occurred in the late evening or early morning hours, however several took place during the late morning hours when it is believed that people are at work.

Nearly all of these incidents involved vehicles that were unlocked. Many of these vehicles had valu-

able personal property inside, including electronics, money, firearms, etc. Some of the vehicles had keys left inside, which resulted in the vehicles being stolen.

MCSO is asking that residents take simple measures to help avoid falling victim to these crimes: lock your vehicles, remove valuable personal property from vehicles, and do not leave keys inside vehicles. These steps will help substantially reduce your risk of being a victim. In many cases unlocked vehicles were targeted, and it is believed the suspects walk neighborhoods checking for unlocked cars. They then rummage through the vehicles looking valuables. Simply locking your car doors and removing any items of value is often enough to help avoid being a victim.

• Lock Your Vehicle • Do Not Leave Keys Inside of Vehicle • Remove Valuables from Vehicle or Out of Plain Sight • Close Garage Doors When Not Home

MCSO is asking for the public’s help in reporting any suspicious activity. If you observe something you believe is suspicious, please call MCSO’s non-emergency dispatch line at (602) 876-1011. MCSO will dispatch a deputy to investigate the matter. If the matter is an emergency, please call 9-1-1.


CAUTION

FOUNTAIN HILLS RESIDENTS More than 182 people died from heat-related causes in the Phoenix area last year. That is the highest number of heat related deaths in the last 13 years. According to the Centers for Disease Control, extreme heat kills more Americans each year than hurricanes, lightning, tornadoes and floods combined. Every heat-related illness and death is preventable. Yet, the deadly heat doesn’t seem to grip the country’s attention and its victims often die anonymously. One explanation may be that it’s an indirect killer – it often makes a current health issue worse and then leads to death. Also, heat has a tendency to kill the people we seem to notice the very least, elderly residents who live in isolation, who lack transportation and are faced with significant health and financial limitations. It may be a neighbor on your street whom you rarely see or someone who works nearby, or even someone you are acquainted with but do not know well. It could even be a neighbor that you do know well. The majority of heat victims are older, sicker and naturally vulnerable. However, it can be easy for any of us to over-exert ourselves before recognizing heat exhaustion or eventually heat stroke. SIGNS OF HEAT EXHAUSTION & HEAT STROKE

• • • • •

Feeling dizzy or faint Feeling nauseous or dehydrated Experiencing cramps in the arms or legs Having a fast and weak pulse An above normal body temperature

EXTREME HEAT BRINGS POTENTIAL HEALTH CONCERNS

Promoting independence and enhancing the quality of life of our elderly residents is key to being a healthy community. DO YOU NEED ASSISTANCE WITH AIR CONDITIONING OR UTILITY BILLS?

Maybe you have only an old-style evaporative cooler, a standing fan, or no cool air at all. Many residents in Fountain Hills are unaware of utility assistance programs that can help with utility payments. If you would like to find out about available assistance, call these programs/organizations: • Start with SRP, your utility company, call 602-236-8888 as soon as possible. Ask to speak with a Customer Resource Counselor asthey help over 20,000 customers every year. Let them know your situation. They have an “Economy Price Plan” and a variety of other assistance options and programs for limited income households. They are aware of the effects that insufficient cooling and heat have on the lives of individuals and families, especially those who are most vulnerable. • Fountain Hills Fire Department 480-945-6311; or Maricopa County Sheriff Department 602-252-7840 both serve Fountain Hills residents and will make a well-check visit. • St. Vincent DePaul in Fountain Hills also has a Help Line, 480-837-7287. Food, clothing and some emergency financial assistance with rent or utilities can be provided. Callers can leave a message with their name and phone number and it will be returned within 24-hours. • Extended Hands Food Bank, 480-837-0303, located at 16548 E. Laser Drive, #6, in Fountain Hills. They work closely with utility companies, like SRP, to provide financial assistance for utility bills as well as food boxes. Hours: Mon-Fri-Sat: 9 a.m. – 11 a.m.; Tues: 3 p.m. – 6 p.m.; Closed Weds + Thurs. • Dial 2-1-1 for the Community Information and Referral Service, a free service that links residents to community services throughout the state of Arizona.

WHEN YOUR ELDERLY NEIGHBOR NEEDS HELP

As our population grows older, this is becoming a more common scene: neighbors trying to find help for another neighbor whose driving may pose a danger to others, whose home might be in disrepair, or whose utilities may have been cut off for nonpayment. If you’re in this situation, you may feel both worried for your neighbor and frustrated by unsuccessful efforts to find assistance. It’s critically important to check on older neighbors and family members, especially those who live alone. Not only do some older people lose their ability to adapt to heat, certain medications interfere with the body’s ability to handle heat. . More seniors are living along and there are more “elder orphans” Aging in place and living alone works fine for many seniors, as long as they are socially connected and can live safely on their own. Problems arise, though, when solo-living seniors have no one to check in on them and no family to help out. These so-called “elder orphans” can suffer from social isolation, and health problems can spill into poor self-care, a neglected home, and problems running errands and caring for pets. Signs that your older neighbor may need help You may notice behavior changes like increased irritability or confusion that can indicate health problems. Other signs your neighbor may be in need are: • Mental confusion and wandering around the neighborhood • Erratic driving or new damage to their vehicle • A suddenly unkempt appearance • Pets left out all night to bark or no longer taken for walks • No lights on at night, whether can be a sign that the power has been cut off • Failing to put trash out for weekly pick up • An overflowing mailbox WHO SHOULD YOU TALK TO WHEN A NEIGHBOR NEEDS HELP?

Talk to your neighbor first, in a tactful way. You might start by asking how they’re doing and then mention something you’ve noticed, such as an overgrown yard or mail spilling out of the mailbox. Offer to help, if you’re willing and able to do so. Some people will gladly accept help, others may not. Find out if your neighbor has family members you can contact to see if they can help, and keep numbers in case of emergency. If your neighbor is a member of a faith community, ask the church office if they have resources to help their senior members. If your neighbor is truly isolated, or if they need more services than neighbors and family can provide, get in touch with the local Area Agency on Aging is 24-hour Senior Help Line, 602-264-HELP. Describe the situation to them. This agency has the experts on what’s available in terms of: • State, local, and federal benefits • Assistance programs to help seniors live safely at home • Health and wellness programs • In-home care coordination • Adult day care and Senior housing options • Transportation AARP offers an excellent online toolkit for preventing heat-related illnesses and deaths by checking on neighbors during periods of extreme heat. It can be accessed at http://createthegood.org/toolkit/help-someone-stay-coolduring-extreme-heat. It allows you to make a list of neighbors who are most vulnerable to extreme heat and offers an action list for heat emergencies. Finally, remember that if you are ever worried about your neighbor’s immediate safety – you haven’t seen them in an unusually long time, they failed to return from an errand, or it is unusually hot outside and you want to make sure that they are staying cool- you can request a “Wellbeing Check” from our local Sheriff Department at 602-876-1011, or Fire Department at 480-945-6311.

For the Love of Our Four-Legged Friends With great parks and trails, our hometown offers a multitude of options for walking your pets. While our parks and trails stay open this time of year, we encourage pet owners to only walk their pets in the early morning or dusk hours to avoid excessive heat. If your pet needs exercise and socialization, we encourage our residents to use our Dog Park at Desert Vista Park. This popular, 3-acre facility allows dogs to run off-leash in a protected, fenced area. This space is designed with two social areas, one intended for larger, more active dogs, and one for smaller, more passive dogs. The Desert Vista Dog Park is open from 6:00 a.m. – 9:00 pm. Please visit the Town website for more details about any of our parks and trails at www.fh.az.gov.

“Just a Minute Is Too Long”

While enjoying our Town’s parks and amenities, please abide by the Town’s ordinance requiring all pets to be on a leash at all times. This rule is for the safety of you, your pet and other park users. Please do not allow pets to run off-leash at ballfields or open spaces, as this can create unsafe situations for animals, wildlife, and residents. Our first priority is keeping all of our residents, two or four-legged, safe and healthy. Tips for keeping dogs cool this summer: • Offer an ice pack or wet towel to lay on. • Add ice cubes to the water bowl. •  Offer access to a wading pool with shallow, cool water. • Offer access to cool shade. •  Bring a collapsible water dish on your walks or to the park. •  Avoid walking on hot pavement, and consider booties to insulate their feet.

•  Early morning or evening playtimes, exercise, and walks are best. Heatstroke in dogs: know the signs • Raised temperature (101.5° is normal) • Rapid breathing and panting • Excess salivation and thickened saliva • Fatigue or depression • Muscle tremors • Staggering If you spot these signs, get your dog indoors and contact your vet immediately. Dehydration in dogs: know the signs • Sunken eyes • Lethargy • Dry mouth • Depression •  Gently pinch a fold of skin at the top of the neck. Is it slow to snap back?

COUNCIL ROUND-UP Here are actions taken by our Town Council in June. For a complete listing of all actions and meeting minutes, please visit: www.fh.az.gov/ AgendaCenter Town Council will adjourn for a summer break after the June 18, 2019 meeting and will reconvene for regular session meetings beginning August 13, 2019.

JUNE: Consideration of Resolution No. 2019-24 approving the Final Budget for the Town of Fountain Hills for fiscal year beginning July 1, 2020. and ending June 30, 2019.

MOTION TO APPROVE RESOLUTION, PASSED UNANIMOUSLY PUBLIC HEARING AND CONSIDERATION OF Ordinance 19-04, an amendment to the Town of Fountain Hills Zoning Ordinance and Zoning Map to revert the zoning of approximately 5.74 acres generally located at the northwest corner of N. Saguaro Boulevard and E. Trevino Drive (AKA APN#176-10-811) from Hemingway Planned Area Development zoning district to C-1 Neighborhood Commercial and Professional zoning district. MOTION TO APPROVE ORDINANCE, PASSED UNANIMOUSLY PUBLIC HEARING AND CONSIDERATION OF Ordinance 19-08, amending the official Zoning District Maps of the Town of Fountain Hills, by changing the zoning designation of approximately 5.74 acres generally located at the northwest corner of N. Saguaro Boulevard and E. Trevino Drive (APN#176-10-811) from C-1 Neighborhood Commercial and Professional zoning district to C-2 Intermediate Commercial zoning district.

NO ACTION TAKEN

fountain hills snake removals Each year, Fountain Hills’ Rural/Metro Fire Department receives hundreds of calls for snake removals and, as the weather warms up, snakes will become more prevalent. “We recognize that a rattlesnake, or other poisonous reptile, that is seeking shelter in your home poses a serious risk to you and your pets,” Fountain Hills Rural Metro Assistant Fire Chief Jason Payne said “Snakes have been here longer than we have, and we need to respect the role they have in the environment.” Snakes will seek out warm areas like driveways, pool decks and sidewalks when they are cold and cool places like garages when they are hot. “Snakes are just as afraid of us as we are of them,” Payne said, “and they do not know they are entering our homes, yards, or brush.” “We expect a high volume of snake removal calls when outside temperatures reach 80 degrees consistently,” Payne said. “Across Arizona snakes emerged from their den in search of warm rays of sun, and they can be grumpy”. Here is what residents of Fountain Hills should consider before calling the Fire Department for a snake removal: • Snakes are not bad. In fact, snakes have an important role in the eco-system. It is important to remember that a snake that is seen in the desert does not warrant a call for removal. In fact, many people allow non-venomous snakes to stay around their home to keep away rodents and make the site less inviting to rattlesnakes. • You should call the Fire Department immediately if a rattlesnake is in your garage, inside your home, or on your patio, or if you or your family members or pets are in immediate danger, at 911. Here are important things to remember in the unlikely case of a snake bite: • Remain calm; an increase in heart rate increases the spread of toxic venom throughout the body. Call 911 immediately and seek emergency treatment. Do not attempt to cut out the venom with a knife and do not try to suck the venom from a snake bite. These things do not work, and can increase anxiety and create additional problems. Do not do what they do in the movies. Do not worry about capturing or killing the snake; call 911 and let the Fire Department handle the rest. For more information please visit: www.fh.az.gov or call (480) 816-5100.

FOUNTAIN HILLS: nEED TO KNOW street maintenance The Fountain Hills Boulevard shoulder paving project will continue until mid-August, with the northbound and southbound shoulder access closed. The sidewalk infill will commence and is tentatively scheduled to be completed by the end of June. The right lane and bike lanes of Palisades Boulevard from Golden Eagle to Hampstead will be closed. The Street Department will also be implementing intersection improvements along with the installation of LED stop signs throughout Town. The Town thanks our residents for their patience and cooperation as we make these necessary improvements.

Adero Canyon Trailhead Access Closed Access to the Adero Canyon Trailhead access via Eagle Ridge Drive was closed to the public beginning Monday, April 29, 2019. This closure will allow Toll Brothers to construct Eagle Ridge Drive north to the trailhead entrance. The closure is expected to continue until late September 2019. The public is encouraged to use the Golden Eagle Trailhead as an alternate access point to reach the Sonoran Preserve and connecting trails.

Town Parks by the Numbers Fountain Hills is robust with amenities. It is well known that we are home to many parks, trail systems, sports facilities, and recreation amenities, but just how many do we have? Here is a look at our Town by the numbers: • 119 acres of park land

• 7 playgrounds

• A 3-acre dog park

• 822 acres of natural preserve lands

• 6 ballfields

• 7.7 miles of preserve trails

• 6 tennis courts

• 2 trailheads

• 2 basketball courts

• 4 soccer/multi-use fields

• 2 sand volleyball courts

• 1 splash pad

With all of this space it is easy to see why Fountain Hills is the recreation choice for locals and visitors alike and why it hosts my special events and sports tournaments. Not to mention that all of our space is open and maintained 365 days a year.

Golden Eagle Park Rededication On May 16, 2019, Mayor Ginny Dickey and Council rededicated Golden Eagle Park near ballfields 2, 3, and 4. Dignitaries discussed the 100-year storm that damaged the park, the tremendous efforts taken by staff to rebuild and renovate the ballfields, as well as the park’s importance to the community. The celebration included a ribbon cutting and staff recognition for their hard work and dedication restoring our treasured park for citizens and visitors to enjoy.

layout changes at the Community Center and Activity Center Over the next few weeks, our Community Center and Activity Center will undergo some layout changes. These changes will allow us to expand our offerings and increase our programs. The John O’Flynn Activity Center has been home to our administrative staff, lending library, program flyer wall, and served as storage for the many supplies necessary for our various activities. These amenities are being relocated to other areas within our Community Center. The lending library will be moved to the lobby where many patrons currently enjoy reading time. Additionally,

kiosks will be added in the lobby area to display flyers for our programs and administrative staff will be moved to unused office space adjacent to the front reception desk. This will allow staff to be more accessible to customers and create a “one-stop shop” where patrons can gather information for all their needs and interests. We are excited about these changes, which are designed to better serve our community. We hope to see you soon!

DON’T MISS IN THE LOOP Classes, programs, presentations, events and more can be found in the latest edition of our “In the Loop” Activity Guide! Guides can be picked up in Town Hall, the Community Center and can also be found online at www.fh.az.gov. For more information visit: www.fh.az.gov or call (480) 816-5100.

Town Implements Code RED Emergency Notification System The Town of Fountain Hills is making efforts to prepare residents for emergency situations by implementing the CodeRED emergency notification system. While everyone knows it’s important to be prepared, the Town wants to ensure that everyone knows exactly what to do in the event of an emergency. CodeRED enhances communications between residents and Town public safety personnel by sending telephone calls, text messages, emails, and social media alerts directly to enrolled residents. The Town urges all residents to enroll to receive emergency alerts through CodeRED. Enrollment is free and easy! Visit the Town website at www.fh.az.gov/codered and click on the CodeRED logo at the bottom to enter or update your contact information. The Town asks residents to encourage their family members, friends, colleagues, and other groups to access the CodeRED system and make sure their information is in the emergency database. We rely on the CodeRED system to keep our community informed during an emergency. For more information please visit: www.fh.az.gov or call (480) 816-5100.
