The Northwest Fire and Rescue District will offer free inspections of vehicle car seats.

The inspections, which usually last 20 to 30 minutes, will make sure a seat is in good working order, not a recalled model, compatible with a vehicle and appropriate for a child’s size. The fire district’s technicians also will teach parents how to correctly install car seats as well as answer any questions about the use of child safety and booster seats.

Once children outgrow safety seats — usually when they reach 40 pounds — they should use booster seats until they reach 80 pounds.

The Northwest Fire inspections are available by appointment only. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call 887-1010, ext. 5006.

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
