Coconino County Ordinance #2017-11 prohibits parking at all times along County maintained rights-of-way between November 1 and April 1 and allows for the civil enforcement of parking restrictions either by citation (not less than $200 fine) or towing. This ordinance is intended to help reduce the detrimental effects of snow play, and keep all county roads clear of vehicles for road maintenance employees when there is snow that needs to be removed.  THANK YOU for complying.


The FLOA Board of Directors monthly meetings will be on hiatus until April 2020. 

They meet on the 3rd Satuday of the months of April through September at 2 PM at the FL Community Center, 1111 Merzville Road.

Passing of Sally Kennedy

Former resident and Fire District Volunteer Paramedic Sally Kennedy passed away Sunday, November 17th, in Payson.

Sally was in Hospice care and passed around 9 pm on 11/17/2019. She went very peacefully and pain free in her sleep, Her grandson Colt was with her the entire time.  There will not be any kind of services as she did not want any and Colt gave her his word. Sally wanted to be cremated and half of her ashes to go to her daughter and the other half to be spread at Fulton Point, where her mothers ashes were spread many years ago. She only wanted her immediate family present for spreading of the ashes so we will not be disclosing a date or time for the event.

Sally is survived by 2 children, 4 grandchildren, 5 great grandchildren and 1 unborn great grandchild.

If you would like to send a card, address them to: Colt Skinner, 911 E. Lone Pine Cir., Payson, Az 85541 

Sally was a very important part of our community and the face of the fire district, responding to many emergencies throughout the years she served.  She moved to Payson in 2013.  Her dedication to serve our community will never be forgotten.

The Kennedys operated the compactor for several years when it was out near the pond. Sally was the last owner of what is now the Forest Lakes Community Center property.

Our deepest condolences to her family.
