Flagstaff Looking To Reduce Snowplay Traffic And Trash

Flagstaff City leaders are looking at how they can reduce traffic and litter caused by winter visitors who come to play in the snow.

At a recent council meeting, Heidi Hansen, the city's economic vitality director, said city staff have talked about having a greater police presence, as well as more trash receptacles, volunteers from the city's master recyclers and more education literature for winter visitors.

Hansen said the city's tourism fund has $40,000 in one-time money available, as well as another $50,000 in contingency funding to aid in the effort.

Hansen said other entities will be involved in the process, including Coconino County, the Arizona Department of Transportation and the Forest Service.
