An Arizona developer’s plan to build 168 homes along Sitting Bull Road, will be brought back on a future agenda after the council voted to reconsider the project that was originally denied on a 3-2 vote on March 27.

The town’s policy permits the losing side to request reconsideration, according to town staff. Mayor Barb Stanton and Councilman Rick Roelle voted not to revisit the housing issue during the April 10 meeting.

APPLE VALLEY REVIEW

Each year a warrant is put out for my arrest.

I have finally gotten Apple Valley deputies to bring it to a Rotary meeting rather than my house, which scared the snot out of me last year. The Apple Valley Police Activities League, or AVPAL, has to be one of the worthiest intervention programs ever created.
