****Balloon Festival Postponement Announcement
After some lengthy deliberation and discussion with Arizona Events Group, promoter of the White Mountains Hot Air Balloon Festival, we have reached the difficult decision to postpone this weekend’s event due to the high probability of heavy rains and possible thunderstorms created by Tropical Storm Bud. Weather models call for up to 2 inches of rain from Friday through Sunday, including the potential for dangerous lightning in the area. We want to provide a safe and enjoyable environment for everyone and at this time, we may not be able to achieve that if we were to proceed. While we are disappointed that the Balloon Festival will not proceed this weekend as scheduled, we are grateful for the likelihood of the much needed rain in our area. We are looking at rescheduling this event for the fall. To all of our sponsors, vendors, retailers, bands, balloon pilots and most importantly to people who have purchased tickets or planned to attend, we extend our regrets. All sponsors and vendors will be contacted by the end of the day with additional details. For additional information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. ****

Allison Hephner with Navajo County Public Health District stops by to talk about Environmental Health.
The Navajo County Department of Environmental Health maintains a delegation agreement with the Arizona Department of Health Services which grants us enforcement authority over Food Establishments, Retail Food, Bars/Lounges, School Food and Sanitation, Hotels/Motels, Trailer Coach Parks, Swimming Pools/ Spas, Summer Camps, Temporary and Mobile Food Units, and Water and Wastewater haulers. Inspections of Food Establishments are Critical Control Based whereby the focus is on handling practices which are more likely to lead directly to a Food Borne Illness. We believe that education is a recipe for prevention. We are always ready and willing to take the time to educate operators and employees on the best food safety management practices as they would apply to their operation in an effort to reduce or eliminate Food Borne Illnesses and Outbreaks.
We also inspect and enforce Public Nuisance Complaints covered under A.R.S. 36-601 Nuisances Dangerous to Public Health. Common Violations include but are not limited to: Septic/ Sewage complaints, Household Garbage complaints, Fly and Vector complaints, and Smoke Free Arizona complaints and referrals. Complaints involving Landlord/ Tenant relationships, Mold, Odors, and unsightly or junk ridden properties generally do not fall into the category of Nuisances Dangerous to Public Health and thus we have no enforcement authority over.
