How is Bisbee dealing with the aftermath of the City Hall fire and what is the future of the plastic bag ban? These were the main areas of focus during our interview with David Smith, Mayor of Bisbee. Mayor Smith talked about the challenges facing this small community, but also about some positive things going on related to tourism and the city’s relationship with neighboring Mexico.
In our community news hour with Eric Petermann of the Herald/Review, we discussed the City of Sierra Vista decision to no longer provide police escorts for funeral processions. We also discussed the city’s new agreement to provide ambulance services to Fort Huachuca, the debate over the trees at the San Pedro River, and the Bisbee bag ban.
