In recent weeks ATB Executive Director and President Steve Melton (Hunter Contracting) held meetings with Pima County Administrator Chuck Huckelberry, Pima County Deputy Administrator Carmine DeBonis, Tucson Water and City of Tucson Department of Transportation. Since many of our members work with Tucson Water we felt it would be good to meet and share information as well as find better ways to work more closely together. Having Tucson Water participate during the Regional meeting would be a great start. We would also like to find out how we can assist them in policy changes. Tucson Water is committed to working with us and other organizations. In the meeting with Mr. Huckelberry and Mr. DeBonis, Bill Mackey (Granite) also attended regarding our recent efforts on the subdivision street standards. We felt it was important to meet with them to confirm some of the changes we wished to see while trying to give them the best solutions for longer lasting roads. We believe that the solutions are here if not very close at this point. Stay tuned for the final language to the topic. The meeting with the City of Tucson was about the continued efforts of a proper schedule for their roadway plan and Pima County’s. Making sure both schedules work together and allowing all contractors to be involved is important to them. We have met twice to discuss what the schedule looks like in the future.
