On Friday, Nov. 1, Town of Oro Valley officials held a dedication ceremony, naming a wash near Lambert Lane after former Councilmember Kenneth E. (KC) Carter, who passed away April 14, 2012. The event included the unveiling of a plaque.

Carter served on the Oro Valley Town Council from June 2004 to June 2010. He was a champion of the Stormwater Utility, garnering public support and laying the groundwork for the storm-ready community we enjoy today.

Oro Valley Mayor Satish Hiremath, who spoke at the event, commented: “KC’s contributions to this community are still making a difference today, and will continue to do so well into the future. Oro Valley was the first municipality in the state of Arizona to approve dedicated financing for stormwater management, and Mr. Carter was a driving force behind that vision.”
