The Legislative Summit was held on October 4, 2018.  Yuma County welcomed all fifteen counties in Arizona to discuss state and federal policy issues impacting county operations and residents. The Supervisors had three days to prioritize issues and go over 13 legislative proposals for consideration of all counties.   

Take some time to listen to our video to check out who made a special visit to our county summit.
Clerks from all Arizona Counties received their certificates for completing the Certified Professional County Clerk's Program.  The program establishes a knowledge base to help new clerks with succession planning. The program is supported by the County Supervisors Association and it is accredited through the International Institute of Municipal Clerks.

Take some time to watch who was the County's first Clerk to be awarded.

It doesn't happen often in Yuma County, but when a large amount of rain comes to the area a lot of pooling water starts showing up. The recent rain from Hurricane Rosa is an example. Pooling water means mosquitos have a place to breed. Check out this video for some helpful information to help keep the mosquito population low near your home.

On November 26, 1981, the Yuma County Board of Supervisors adopted a resolution regarding a public recreational park situated adjacent to the incorporated Town of Wellton. The Town of Wellton had expressed interest in acquiring the park and assuming the operation and maintenance. The park was constructed by the Arizona Outdoor Recreation Commission funds (AORC) and maintained per a mutual agreement between the county and the AORC. The land on which said the park was situated was acquired from the United States through the Department of Interior Bureau of Reclamation. Subject to the approval of the AORC and the Bureau of Reclamation and assumption of the Town of Wellton of all county obligations, the county transferred all right, title, and interest in and unto the park commonly known as Butterfield Park to the Town of Wellton. Board members were: Robert W. Kennerly (Chairman), Ray Moore, R. Pete Woodard, and J. R. Sanders, and Caryl L. Stanley.
