On February 5, 2020, the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors unanimously voted to approve a Resolution, which supported the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution and declared Yavapai County a Second Amendment Sanctuary County. 

Yavapai County Board of Supervisors Chairman, Craig Brown called the meeting to order, had roll call taken, and then read aloud the Resolution.  He then asked if the Board wanted to make a comment before opening the meeting up for one hour of public comment.

There were three people located in the Cottonwood Boardroom who wished to speak in favor of the Resolution.  In Prescott, there were Twenty-eight people who completed public participation forms, twenty-five of which asked to speak in favor of supporting the Resolution, including Congressman Paul Gosar, who was not able to attend but sent his representative Penny Pew.   Once everyone, that had requested permission to speak had a chance to, the Board voted in favor of the Resolution and then took a brief intermission before continuing the regular meeting.

The discussion by the board regarding protection of the Second Amendment started at a regular Board of Supervisors meeting in Cottonwood on December 18, 2019.   Preceding a presentation by Myrna Lieberman, Jon Mitchell and Drake Mitchell regarding support for the second amendment of the Constitution of the United States, Supervisor Garrison allowed for a period of public comment.  With 17 Public Participation forms completed, the public spoke for nearly 40 minutes in support of, and opposition to, supporting the Second Amendment and identifying Yavapai County as a Sanctuary County.

At the first regular Yavapai County Board of Supervisors meeting for 2020, Chairman Craig Brown opened the meeting to public comment.  Estimates placed the total number of people in attendance at nearly 500 with 388 of them completing Public Participation forms and 91 of those requesting the opportunity to speak in support of or against the Second Amendment Proclamation scheduled to be voted on by the Board. 

During the first meeting of the year, after nearly three and half hours of public comment, Supervisor Mary Mallory put forth a motion to table the proclamation, and Vice-Chairman Garrison seconded the motion, to give the board time to consider the opinions expressed and produce something that reflected the public comments regarding the Proclamation.  The resolution that was voted on during the February 5, 2020 regular Board of Supervisors meeting is the result of these effort.

Yavapai County Meets with Behavioral Health Experts to Discuss Collocated Facility at Criminal Justice Center in Prescott

Falcon’s CEO and Founder, Dr.  Elizabeth Falcon recently stated, “Yavapai County is leading the nation in its efforts to break the cycle of recidivism -- by reforming and restructuring its criminal justice system to focus on proactive treatment solutions and community safety. Yavapai County’s leaders are to be commended for taking prompt action and adopting a prudent plan for providing the best evidence-based treatment resources to the people entrusted to their care and custody.”

Chief Deputy David Rhodes, who represented the Sheriff’s Office at the meetings said, “Meeting with Falcon, and most of the Behavioral Health Professionals in Yavapai County, provided confirmation that the Sheriff's office is seeing great success in our efforts to reduce recidivism and provide behavioral health assistance to those in need.  I look forward to seeing a collocated behavioral health facility at the new Criminal Justice Center in Prescott.  This new facility will allow us to increase our efforts in a cost-effective and efficient manner.”

A few of the key objectives of the meetings included, determine proposed re-entry services to be offered at a collocated facility and to create a vision, mission and conceptual framework for the facility.

Some of the issues and objectives that were addressed during the meetings included:

  1. Before 2015 there was little in the way of formal coordinated services between the jail and community BH providers.
  2. Camp Verde Jail was known to have nearly 50% of its population diagnosed with Serious Mental Illness (SMI).
  3. The 2015 Chinn and DLR studies arrived at recommendations to reduce recidivism which have been implemented in subsequent years by the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office (YCSO).
  4. Tour and Breakout Workshop discussion of local relationship and strategic partnerships to achieve desired goals.

Sites that were visited during the meetings included the Camp Verde Detention Center, Gurley Street Jail, Pronghorn Psychiatric, West Yavapai Guidance Clinic and the proposed site for the Criminal Justice Center & Collocated Services Center.  The objective of these visits was to examine system flow, to obtain a firsthand context of operations and needs, and to understand strengths and challenges of operations.

An extensive question and answer time was held and here are some of their findings:

  1. Collaboration between YCSO, Release Coordinators and local Behavioral Health providers is seen as an area of strength in Yavapai County.
  2. Local Judges are embracing the Reach Out efforts, information and screening tools.
  3. Reach Out’s current location in the Camp Verde Jail is not ideal; Closer proximity to booking activities will create system efficiencies.
  4. The current Gurley Street Jail facility is not conducive to safe, long-term inmate detention.
  5. The process for responding to emergency calls for Emotionally Disturbed Person (EDP) is overburdening law enforcement resources, resulting in prolonged transfers of custody and ultimately delaying coordination and delivery of urgent crisis care.
  6. There is a consensus among all those present that there is a need for a collocated facility.

Falcon’s Senior Expert Dr. Robin Timme, Psychologist, stated “Falcon and Yavapai County are working together to right-size the new collocated re-entry and behavioral health facility, to make sure the spaces we build are actually needed and are designed to support the best evidenced-based treatment programs. We are conceptualizing the programming first, and then recommending what space is necessary to implement the programming.” Dr. Timme went on to explain, “By making services and treatment available immediately for individuals with serious mental illness (at the first moment the need is identified), Yavapai County’s approach is to help them stabilize and recover, and to avoid the criminal justice system altogether.  This is how we break the cycle of criminalizing mental illness”. 


Yavapai County Begins 2020/2021 Budget Process

Yavapai County Begins 2020/2021 Budget Process

 

On Wednesday January 22, 2020, the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors met at Embry Riddle Aeronautical University for a special budget retreat to discuss a few of the larger upcoming budget issues and begin the budget process.

Yavapai County Administrator Phil Bourdon began the meeting with a review of current economic data for Arizona and Yavapai County, and then covered updates from the Governor on the state budget, new County budget considerations and the budget process going forward.  Mr. Bourdon said, “We always begin the budget process by removing all of last year’s capital one-time expenditures from the general fund.  We look at Elections and Voter Registration budgets and adjust according to the upcoming election schedule, and we look at continuing our additional payments to Public Safety Personnel Retirement System (PSPRS) in order to reduce the unfunded liability and allow these additional funds time to mature and grow into the future.”

Yavapai County Human Resources and Risk Management Director Wendy Ross discussed with the board how the minimum wage has been steadily increasing each year and how this year would be no different.  Mrs. Ross stated, “On January 1, of 2020, the minimum wage went up to $12.00 an hour.  This change made it necessary to increase the wage of over 50 employees, in order to comply with state minimum wage law.  The steady and continuing increases to minimum wage have created some internal compression issues with employee wages, and Mrs. Ross had several options for the board to consider as they move forward with the budget process.

Public Works Director Dan Cherry was next to present on the County’s Regional Roads Program. Mr. Cherry noted that 2016 legislative changes to the statutes which govern the County’s authority to charge and collect roadway development impact fees are scheduled to take effect as of January 1st, 2021. “Requirements for a County to collect roadway impact fees, an important source of funding for the County’s Regional Roads Program, are becoming more stringent and restrictive to the specific roadway capacity needs created by new developments. The expenditure restrictions state; Funds must be used for capacity improvements such as new construction, widening, and adding turn lanes.” These restrictions phase out the ability of the County to collect impact fees based on its existing Roadway Development Fee program later in 2020. Mr. Cherry went on to explain that, because of this reduction in funding, should the County choose to not create a new roadway impact fee program under current statutes, the County should continue to encourage and support legislation at the State level which can help generate funding for the maintenance and construction of infrastructure in the State and region.

Mr. Cherry included the following chart to illustrate previous and current projects made possible with partnerships, which have been a hallmark of the County’s Regional Roads Program since its inception in the 1990s

Yavapai County Facilities Assistant Director Brandon Shoults wrapped up the meeting with a review of the three main capital projects; the Criminal Justice Center, Gurley St Remodel (including a Parking Structure and Interior Remodel), and Marina St.  With the construction of a new Criminal Justice Center (CJC) located in Prescott, scheduled to begin later this year, design and construction plans for the Gurley Street facility are moving ahead as scheduled.  Mr. Shoults said, “We are planning on breaking ground on the first phase of the remodel, a new parking structure for the building, in around April with completion as early as August or September of this year.” 

Mr. Shoults went on to explain that working with Kitchell Corporation, the County’s Representative for the Criminal Justice Center, has been financially beneficial and will allow the county to stay on schedule while ensuring the construction of quality facilities that will last for decades.

The final project that Mr. Shoults discussed was the Marina Street building.  The County is currently waiting for grant funding in order to complete a study on the abatement needs of the building.  Once the report is complete, Mr. Shoults said he would submit the report as part of a grant request, which will cover a majority of costs to resolve the abatement issues.  Once this is complete, the county can decide the best way to utilize this building for the benefit of Yavapai County residents.

US Census

Very important information from Supervisor Brown.....

The Census 2020 is Coming!

Yavapai County is partnering with local jurisdictions and the US Census Bureau to get an accurate count of every person residing in Yavapai County as of April 1, 2020.  The County has received general trainings from the Census Bureau to get our Complete Count Committee formed, and will begin meeting to brainstorm with the committee in November.  The big kick off and advertisements from the Census will begin after the new year in January 2020.  Currently, the Census Bureau is hiring many citizens from around every community to help with the collection of data and verify homes and addresses.  The Census workers are out in the neighborhoods right now and should be clearly identified with a badge.  Please be kind to them as they are trying to help locate homes and other buildings that people may be living in.  The benefit will be for our communities to be given our portion of the funds from the federal government to help support our community needs.  The actual census will be conducted in April 2020.  Residents will be able to respond via phone, mail, or via the internet based on the preferred method of the resident. Federal Census takers will be personally visiting difficult or nonresponsive properties during the summer of 2020.

Will Your License Fly?

Supervisor Brown wanted to share this very important information with you.....

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) will not accept the standard AZ Driver’s License if you plan to travel by plane after October 1, 2020.  It is critical that you trade in your old license for a new federally approved one before TSA turns you away from your flight or attempt to enter a federal building or military base.

Three years ago, Arizona issued drivers licenses that stated, this ID is not valid for federal identification.  The Homeland Security website (https://www.dhs.gov/real-id-public-faqs) states that the REAL ID Act, enacted the 9/11 Commission's recommendation that the Federal Government set standards for the issuance of sources of identification, such as driver's licenses.  The site goes on to explain, “The Act established minimum security standards for state-issued driver's licenses and identification cards and prohibits Federal agencies from accepting for official purposes licenses and identification cards from states that do not meet these standards.” 

Customers who want to convert their Non-Travel Arizona Driver License or Identification Card to a Travel Driver License or Identification Card can avoid the wait by making an appointment at a participating MVD office.  The new ID will cost you a minimum of $25 and there are several documents you must bring with you in order to prove your identity, social security number and residency.  The list of allowed forms of ID include Birth Certificate, U.S. Passport, or Passport Card.  There is also a required proof of Social Security Number, which includes your Social Security Card or W-2 form.  Finally, you will need to bring in proof of residence such as a utility bill, Credit Card Statement, bank statement or insurance policy.

There are some subtle changes you will notice to the new cards design including a gold star in the corner, indicating the ID is federally approved, and you will need to renew your Voluntary Travel ID every eight years.  It makes sense to take action now before the deadline approaches.  For more information, visit AZTravelID.com. To make an appointment with MVD go to https://servicearizona.com/ and click on MVD Office Appointments, or call 800-251-5866.


Fire Area Closure Important For Firefighter and Public Safety

The fire area closure order that is in effect over the Sheridan Fire area is extremely important for firefighter and public safety. Firefighters and forest officials have been working closely with area permittees for access as needed, but we continue to see non-authorized individuals in the closure area. County Road 68, also known as the Camp Wood Road, acts as the northern boundary to the closure and remains open to local traffic at this time. Areas south of the Camp Wood Road within the Forest boundary is closed, while areas to the north of Camp Wood Road remain open. County roads on the perimeter of the closure remain open. A map and detailed description of the closure area is available on Inciweb and on the Prescott National Forest website.  

Sheridan Fire Overview

Location: 23 miles Northwest of Prescott, AZ on the Chino Valley District (T16N, R6W, S16)

Start Date: August 5, 2019

Size:  2,380 acres [more accurate mapping from drones and infrared aircraft]

Percent Contained: 0%

Cause: Lightning

Vegetation: Pinyon-Juniper, Grass and Brush

Resources: Approx. 80 personnel including: 3-Engines, 1-Water Tender, 1-Handcrew, 1-Helicopter, 1 – Hotshot crew

Current Situation:

The fire continues to move steadily across the landscape in a remote and rural area south of the Camp Wood Road, and northwest of Willow Spring in the Sheridan Mountain area. There are no homes or structures threatened.

We are asking everyone to use caution as they continue to use the Camp Wood Road, as firefighters and multiple fire resources are working in the area. Area roads, trails, and natural barriers will be used as control features. Masticators will begin working along the Camp Wood Road and in select areas to clear vegetation to enhance the effectiveness of control features. Firefighters are continuing to use a helicopter and agency operated drones to monitor fire activity as access to the immediate fire area is limited mostly due to rough and rugged terrain.

The Sheridan Fire is a lightning caused fire being monitored as it burns naturally across the landscape. This fire is being allowed to play its natural role within the fire-adapted ecosystem. There is a wide variety of vegetation densities on the fire which, along with terrain and weather, will influence fire behavior and effects. Under the right conditions, fire helps break down nutrients and minerals in plants and other debris such as old logs and dense undergrowth and restores them to the soil.  The process also effectively reduces fire intensity in the case of future ignitions in the area as well.

Smoke:

Smoke from the Sheridan Fire will continued to be visible from Prescott and the Tri-City area during mid-afternoon and into the evening hours, extending as far north of the general fire area relative to the predominant wind direction.

With smoke impacts continuing to be expected, we recommend that the public plan activities during the earlier part of the day. For those more sensitive to smoke, we also recommend staying indoors with windows and doors closed and bringing pets inside.
