Mayor Christian Price declared April 19 – 25, 2015 Crime Victim Rights Week in the City of Maricopa. The Mayor read the proclamation from the front steps of City Hall surrounded by leaders of the faith-based community who volunteer their time to help victims of crimes in our community.
"By working with community leaders and organizations the City of Maricopa recognizes we can leverage existing resources to understand the needs of underserved victims and the impact of victimization," said Mayor Christian Price. "Engaging the entire community will enable us to reach more victims and expand their options for service. We stand united in our commitment to develop solutions which ensure victims and survivors of crime receive the support and services they need and deserve."
The City Of Maricopa is looking for volunteer drivers to transport veterans to medical appointments. This service enhancement will potentially provide transportation Monday through Friday, depending on the availability of volunteer drivers. With this new enhancement, there is no limitation on when or how many trips the shuttle will make per week and therefore provides tremendous flexibility.
As you recall, the City recently partnered with the Veterans Administration to provide transportation from Maricopa to the Gilbert VA Clinic on Monday and Wednesday each week. The City additionally made the COMET bus available to transport veterans from their residence to the park and ride lot, the pickup point for the VA Shuttle. However, the VA Shuttle did not provide service to the Phoenix VA Hospital, a facility in which many veterans receive specialized medical treatment. Another limitation with the Gilbert VA Shuttle is that it only operates on Monday and Wednesday, which can make it hard for a veteran to use due to the difficulty often encountered in getting a medical appointment.
