Is it a new Avant Garde art project? Do they like the way it is piled? Is this some weird hobby? Nape. Not a weird hobby, not an art project, it's evidence. In a bid to clean up the streets of Superior, Public Works has been working with the police department by documenting any piles of trash being left on the streets of Superior instead of being removed to its proper place, in a trash bin or taken to the dump. In realm the Superior PoliceDepartment uses these pictures as evidence when citing the owner of that location with illegal dumping. Did you know that the minimum fine for dumping illegally in Arizona is $1,000 per violation and can be up to $15,000 per violation? So the violation would depend on if you have a nice cop or a mean one; one violation could be a bag of garbage OR one violation could be one piece of garbage within that bag.., so say that bag has 37 pieces of individual garbage in it, this could be quite the hefty fine. This could entirely depend on how many citations for illegal dumping the officer had to write that day or maybe how often this occurs. There is not a soul on this planet that would rather pay, at the very least, $1,000 to get rid of some junk than just taking it to a dump and paying the fairly nominal dump fees. Even including time and fuel, this trip would still not come close to. the minimum fine, if one were caught. So just in case you have that old mattress that you were thinking of kicking to the curb, this might be unwise... just take it to the dump, because if you don't, you risk basically paying for a new Tempurpedic in the process.

Over the nine years he's been mayor, you always know where Michael stands. While I don't agree with Mayor Hing on everything, he always puts our community first. Everyone knows that I disagree with the Mayor on the Resolution Copper land exchange, but our community is about so much more than just one project. I know that Michael will listen to you as he has to me when I have concerns, and he is responsive to those concerns. This election is important, and your vote matters. Join me in supporting Michael Hing for Mayor. Thank you. Sincerely, Manuel "Mongo" Ortega, Sr. J ayme Valenzuela ran an ad that raised more questions than it answered. He sounds like a politician who won't tell the voters where he really stands on important issues. You know where I stand. I have always been honest with Superior residents. ama 3rd generation Supriorite and my decisions are based on what is good for community and our families. Mining has been a part of the this community for generations. I remember Main Street lined with successful businesses, and together we can make that happen again. I support the passage of the current version ' of the Resolution Copper land exchange and the thousands of jobs it will create for our community. I support the Mutual Benefits agreement as negotiated between the Superior community and Resolution Copper because it provides much needed financial assistance now. After the land exchange, this assistance increases to $400,000 per year. I oppose the annexation of Resolution Copper land because it would result in the termination of the mutual benefits agreement and financial assistance to the town. efore you cast your vote, make sure you know where the candidates stand on the ingle most important project that has come to our community in decades. Ask Jayme Valenzuela where he stands o'n the following issues: Hing Valenzuela Support HR 1904 as written (land exchange) Yes ??? Yes ???
