Smoke in neighborhoods The city of Phoenix is testing their sewer connections in Paradise Valley by blowing non-toxic smoke into their sewer lines between September 17th and October 30th. Most of these tests will occur between 8 am and 3 pm. Currently they are testing on McDonald Dr. between Tatum and 57th St. but they will be testing in other areas of Town throughout the end of next month. During tests you will see large amounts of smoke rising from sewer manhole covers, and you may see some smoke inside your home if you have loose sewer connections. Information about this project can be found at This is not a Town of Paradise Valley project and we do not have additional details about the testing. For more information please contact the City of Phoenix Project Management Line at 480-382-1550.

Where did the summer go? With children heading back to school, we at the Paradise Valley Police Department wanted to share these safety reminders with you. 1. Watch your speed in school zones! Be aware that school zone speed limits may vary in hours and speeds. Be sure to follow the posted limits. 2. Slow down in residential areas. Watch for children crossing the street and congregating near bus stops. 3. Do not pass a school bus that is stopped to load or unload children. Traffic in both directions on undivided highways must stop when students are entering or exiting a school bus (the red flashing lights and extended stop sign arms are your cue to stop). On a divided roadway, all traffic behind the school bus must stop. 4. Be alert! The area 10 feet around a school bus is where children are in the most danger of being hit. Children walking to and from their bus are usually very comfortable with their surroundings and more likely to take risks, ignore hazards, or fail to look both ways when crossing the street. 5. Always stop when directed to do so by a school patrol sign, school patrol officer, or designated crossing guard. For more tips on school safety, check out the National Safety Council's Back to School Safety Checklist: If you have other tips not included on this list, feel free to share them with your neighbors by replying to this post.
