Former manager Rod Propst says running airport had ups & downs

Former manager Rod Propst says running airport had ups & downs

Rod Propst held the position of general manager and COO of Sedona-Oak Creek Airport Authority for the last two years, but on Jan. 7, he moved on to greener pastures...

The ongoing conflict between the Gold family and the Village of Oakcreek Association over a 200-square foot garden structure has reached its second year.

Harry Gold stands in front of the hoop house on the Gold family’s  property in the Village of Oak Creek on April 3. The Gold family has been fined by the Village of Oakcreek Association for apparent code  violations regarding the hoop house.The backyard structure, called a hoop house, is made from PVC pipe and screen material, and is used for a shelter to grow organic vegetables.

“It all started on May of 2011 around 1 p.m — I was in the middle of grinding some leaves and sticks for the compost bins,” Craig Gold said. “I had a sign out in front of the house saying that I had vegetable starts. Bob Powers from VOCA walks to the back of the house and points to the hoop house and asks what it is, I tell him that it is a hoop house for growing vegetables. We then received a letter from Bob Powers with a laundry list of violations. Everything from irrigation supplies laying around to not being allowed to park in a gravel driveway.”

    So how is this any different than having a garden? Just because its covered with a tarp? To protect your food! Do you have to have a permit to cover your car with a tarp?

    Seriously Bob Powers?? It's a hoop house not a meth lab! Leave the family and their fresh non-GMO, pesticide free vegetable garden alone!! There are more important things to deal with than bothering a family wanting to eat clean food! geesh!

    It's why we moved from Sedona. Too many people don't mind their own business. Get a life Bob Powers.
