[ARCHIVED] Mayor Proclaims State of Emergency

Inclement Weather Prompts State of Emergency Proclaimation

On July 23, 2021, the Navajo County Board of Supervisors declared a state of emergency on account of localized flooding. On Thursday, July 22, the City recorded 4.33 inches of rain with 2.49 inches in the first hour exceeding a 100-year flood event for peak hour. The 12-hour event exceeded a 250-year flood event. In support of this declaration, the City of Show Low’s Mayor, John Leech Jr., has proclaimed a state of emergency for the City.  Citizens are encouraged to seek shelter and avoid travel during heavy storms.  Any changes to this proclamation will be announced to our citizens promptly via our website   

In partnership with Dirty Deeds, the City of Show Low will offer free flood debris disposal to citizens who have been greatly affected by the recent thunderstorms and flooding.   The free waste disposal opportunity will allow citizens to dump green waste, tree branches, and logs from the recent flood free of charge.  Anyone interested in participating will need to call City Hall at 928-532-4000 and provide their name, phone number, and address.  Please do not include trash to be disposed of; Dirty Deeds will not accept it.  


 Drop off is for free at Dirty Deeds Green Waste, located at 890 Cinder Pit Road off US 60 (behind Perkins Cinders).  Dirty Deeds is located east on US 60, approximately two miles past SR 77 (Penrod Road) to North First Knoll Drive. Make a turn and head south about 0.3 miles, and take a right on Cinder Pit Road. The road ends at 890 Cinder Pit Road.
