Injunction Granted for “Isaiah 58” Church – Quartzsite

29 Mar

The Church of the Isaiah 58 Project of Arizona has been assessed $53,000 in property taxes due to the questionable actions of Tax Assessor George Nault. Many experts say these taxes are not allowed by the Arizona Constitution. (The annual total church budget is about equal to this tax bill.)

So, the church was forced to bring a lawsuit against La Paz County, Arizona, or lose their property to foreclosure. Today the first hearing was held. A judge granted what amounts to a pause in the case. If the judge next determines that the church has been dealt a hardship, then the case may proceed. Otherwise, Isaiah 58 will still be forced to pay the taxes.    Watch Video  Atty Erik Stanley Explains

Town Hiring Prosecutor – Apply Now

08 Mar

March 7 2011 

Quartzsite Mayor and Council;

I respectfully request that this letter be made part of the record of the regular Town Council Meeting scheduled March 8 2011, where the council will take up the issue of hiring a prosecutor. I also request that this letter be considered at such time as Matthew Newman is considered for any contract. Mr. Newman, current Quartzsite prosecutor, ought to be admonished, and disqualified when his contract is due for renewal.

Meeting Agenda

07 Mar

Regular Quartzsite Town Council Meeting, 7pm tomorrow night, Tuesday March 8 – synopsis:

  1. Authorize PBS&J to redesign wastewater plant
  2. Resolution 11-03 submit project to Arizona Highway Safety Plan
  3. Pave streets Targa Trail,Q Mountain Rd and Sun Valley Ave. (public discussion)
  4. Request qualifications for Town Prosecutor
  5. Goldwater Institute warning to town (public discussion)

Although the town has done so in the past, and although Arizona Public Meeting Law requires it, the full agenda and supporting documents are no longer being posted on the Quartzsite Town website. On February 8, the town manager estimated that it might be up by the end of that week, technical difficulties, lots of problems. Although the website is partially rebuilt, it is now a month later, and the site is largely not functional.

Yesterday the Quartzsite Town Council met to consider action against Richard Oldham. The discussion was very brief. Mayor Foster urged the council not to go forth. As often happens, Councilman Lukkasson made a response that nobody could hear. See the meeting video

UPDATE: Richard Oldham’s property, the subject of the special meeting, has been seen advertised for sale.
