Local Government Updates

Dear Friends,


On behalf of myself, Mayor Garino and Nogales City Council we would like to wish you and your families the very best this Year ~~ 2020!


The City is looking forward in completing many projects this year.  We are getting things done! Street projects, improvements in water and sewer infrastructure are certainly hi-lighted this year. 


The city is well on its way in updating the General Plan.  We are undoubtedly very excited and looking forward to economic growth in future annexation.  With the help of our council and staff, we are working to make life in Nogales great!  I encourage everyone to give us a call or send us an email, I look forward to hearing from you.


Events and Happenings:    


1. The City and volunteers from the 0S3 Movement Bicycle Group celebrated the completion of “phase one” (of 3) of the Monte Carlo biking & multi-use trail system.  Although, it was not an official inauguration it sure was great to see so many in supportive of these efforts!  


“The Fun Side of Nogales” as referenced by 0s3 group is the place to enjoy the natural desert scape while checking out the majestic 33ft metal art bicycle structure created by local artist Karla Osete and her father. 


Volunteers of the 0S3 Group worked diligently on the paths, greenery and rock mosaics of the (1) kilometer long trail.   We encourage everyone to visit the trails and to volunteer in ‘phase 2’ of this 2-year project.  


2. Mayor and council members welcomed newly appointed City Manager, Edward B. Johnson.  Mr. Johnson was sworn to office on January 13.   He served our country in the U.S. Army, for 21 years, retired Army lieutenant colonel.  “Eddie” a former chief administrator with the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office has extensive executive level experience.  “Welcome Eddie!”  “You're Among Friends!”
