YuCount Community Newsletter MAY 2018

Recently the 10th Annual Fair Housing Festival was held to assist people who have been looking for housing, but have become frustrated with the process or feel they have been discriminated against while going through the process. Local organizations from around Yuma County were on hand answering questions about housing discrimination and many other housing-related service questions. The video link above will give you a better understanding of what went on and how you, or anyone you know, can get help with fair housing.

In April, the Yuma County Public Works Department visited some local Elementary Schools to demonstrate the equipment that is used for traffic control, highway and solid waste divisions. Check out the link to see how some 1st-3rd graders got a closer look at how our roads are maintained. All of this is leading up to National Public Works Week held every year in May. Keep an eye out for an update in the next YuCount/County Line.
The Yuma County Victim Services Annual Walk a Mile in their shoes event provides support to those who have been victims of domestic and sexual violence.  Agencies spread out over a mile to set up information booths that can benefit these victims and their families.

Take a few minutes to watch the video on how you can participate and give your support to those in need.

For more information, you can contact the Yuma County Attorney's Office-Victim Services or visit their website.

Public defenders are lawyers who defend people charged with a crime and cannot pay for her/his services. Instead, public defenders are normally reimbursed by the state, usually at a lesser amount than the lawyer would make in private practice.

Thinking Money is a new traveling exhibition designed to teach tweens, teens and the adults in their lives about money. Through an adventure-themed storyline, interactive iPad content and other fun activities, Thinking Money explores themes like wants vs. needs, preparing for a rainy/sunny day, imagining your future self and avoiding financial fraud.

In conjunction with the exhibit, the library is also hosting a series of financial workshops. Please check the Calendar of Events for dates and times.

The interactive, all-ages exhibit will be at the Main Library, 2951 S 21st Drive, through May 5th. The exhibit is free and open to the public during library hours, Monday-Thursday 9AM-9PM; Friday-Saturday 9AM-5PM.

For more information, call (928) 782-1871.

Thinking Money was created by the American Library Association (ALA) in partnership with the FINRA Investor Education Foundation.

                           MAY 2018 LANDLORD2
On June 6, 1922, the Yuma County Board of Supervisors adopted a resolution ordering the modification and re-establishment of the No Fence District. Mr. C. A. Lindeman filed a petition on behalf of the residents and taxpayers owning property on the Yuma Mesa, lying outside the boundaries of the No Fence District, asking that the boundaries be changed and re-established so as to incorporate said lands within the said district.

The Clerk was ordered to publish the resolution in the local newspaper for four (4) weeks and upon completion no fences would be required around the lands in the No Fence District, making it unlawful for any animal to run at-large in the district thereafter. The Board originally created the No Fence District on December 5, 1913. Board of Supervisors members were: George Downey (Chairman),    J. C.  Power and J. P. Corey.
