Here are the top stories today in Scottsdale:

  1. With significant cuts to the city’s water supply expected, Scottsdale continues to tap water under preparation. Although Scottsdale recharges approximately 10,000 acre-feet of water per year and has 246,911 acre-feet of water, the city’s water storage efforts are not necessarily ahead of other cities. With concerns over the Colorado River, Scottsdale may be wise to approach banking water for decades. (Scottsdale Progress)
  2. The Scottsdale Memorial for the Fallen was officially dedicated this past Saturday, March 18th. The ceremony, held on the newly designated Memorial Lawn on the east side of City Hall, honored 66 fallen U.S. military members who lived in Scottsdale and nearby Native American communities. ONE new page on the City of Scottsdale’s website is now dedicated to the memorial and includes links to the individual fallen heroes’ stories. (Daily Independent/paywall, City of Scottsdale).
  3. The Scottsdale Veterans Advisory Commission will honor Vietnam veterans with a special event on National Vietnam Veterans Day. Starting at. 5:30 p.m. on March 29, guests can head to the 360 ​​Stage at the Scottsdale Civic Center (3939 N. Drinkwater Blvd.) to enjoy food, live music and the opportunity to meet and thank local Vietnam veterans. (City of Scottsdale)
