The Emergency Proclamation is in effect until April 6, 2021


At the regular Board of Supervisors meeting held on December 16, 2020, the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors voted to extend the Emergency Proclamation until April 6, 2021. 

The authority granted in an Emergency Proclamation comes from Arizona Revised Statute 26-311 which states:
If an emergency is declared pursuant to subsection A, the mayor, or the chairman of the board of supervisors shall, during such emergency, govern by proclamation and shall have the authority to impose all necessary regulations to preserve the peace and order of the city, town, or unincorporated areas of the county, including but not limited to: 

  1. Imposition of curfews in all or portions of the political subdivision. 
  2. Ordering the closing of any business. 
  3. Closing to public access any public building, street, or other public place. 
  4. Calling upon regular or auxiliary law enforcement agencies and organizations within or without the political subdivision for assistance. 
  5. Notifying the constitutional officers that the county office for which they are responsible may remain open or may close for the emergency. https://www.azleg.gov/ars/26/00311.htm 

    To protect the health and safety of the citizens of Yavapai County, Chairman Brown has determined that the Board of Supervisors meetings will not be available to in-person citizen participation until further notice.  Each meeting is available to view online at Yavapai.us/meetings. At least 24 hours prior to each meeting citizens may send comments regarding current agenda items to This email address is being protected from spambots.

    All Yavapai County buildings remain closed to walk-in traffic but many of the services can be provided online or via telephone.  A list of departments and phone numbers can be found on most of the exterior doors or by going to Yavapai.us/contact-us.
