The Yavapai County Board of Supervisors is pleased to announce the continuation of the annual free slash drop-off program

Monday, June 6, 2016

The Yavapai County Board of Supervisors is pleased to announce the continuation of the annual free slash drop-off program at county transfer stations for two months beginning April 11, 2016 and continuing until June 11, 2016

County transfer stations are located in Black Canyon City, Camp Verde, Congress, Mayer, Paulden, Seligman, and Skull Valley. Free slash drop off will be held during normal operating hours. For locations and hours please visit: http://www.yavapai.us/Portals/30/TransferStationList.pdf 

This free slash drop-off program will assist residents in developing necessary defensible space around their homes and other structures. Cutting away vegetation 5 to 30 feet from all structures and removing all debris and dead vegetation from roofs, decks, and the ground can reduce the potential of a wildfire spreading to your home and community.

The following items only will be accepted: brush, branches, grass, leaves and yard trimmings. All slash must be removed from plastic bags.

Items not accepted are: lumber, stumps, roots, cactus, metal and garbage.

Please take advantage of this free slash drop-off program as you create defensible space around your properties.  

This program is for residential use only. Commercial loads will not be accepted.

For additional information, please contact the Yavapai County Public Works Department at (928) 771-3183.

Stepping Up Initiative

Friday, June 3, 2016

As Chairman of the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors I was honored to sign the proclamation joining the Stepping Up Initiative, a National Initiative to reduce the number of people with mental illnesses in jail. 

The Stepping Up initiative is about creating a long-term, national movement—not a moment in time—to raise awareness of the factors contributing to the over-representation of people with mental illnesses in jails, and then using practices and strategies that work to drive those numbers down.

Roadway Improvements in District 5

Tuesday, May 17, 2016

I am pleased to announce many ongoing roadway improvements in District 5.

In the Groom Creek area the following roads will be paved Adeline Drive, Stagecoach Road, Elk Trail and Walton Drive. Starting in late July, crews will begin preparing these roadways for the paving project. School House Gulch Road will begin to see some maintenance and possible widening in some areas. 

Another roadway being evaluated is Old Black Canyon Hwy. This roadway will be considered for a chip seal or overlay project in the future. 

I have been extremely involved in working with our Yavapai County Public Works Department to maintain and improve the roadways in District 5. 

Groom Creek Dumpster Program 2016

Tuesday, May 17, 2016 

Thanks to the support from the Prescott Area Wildland Urban Interface Commission Groom Creek will be able to start the 2016 dumpster program May 23, 2016 and have been given the funding for 6 weeks with 1 dumpster each week. They are still waiting to hear on a different funding source to enhance the number and frequency of the dumpsters being provided. 

As in years past, please put only un-bagged leaf litter and needles in the dumpster. Small diameter branches are acceptable, but if you have a large amount of branches, please contact the fuels mitigation crew who can chip that material so that it takes up less space in the dumpster or can be used elsewhere.
