Board Of Supervisors - Ordinances: 

A.R.S. 11-251.05 Authorizes the Board of Supervisors in the conduct of county business to adopt, amend and repeal all ordinances necessary or proper to carry out the duties, responsibilities and functions of the county which are not otherwise specifically limited by section 11-251 or any other law or in conflict with any rule or law of this state.

It also requires the posting of notice for a public hearing to adopt, amend, or repeal an ordinance with at least 15 days’ notice given by one publication in a newspaper of general circulation in the county seat prior to the hearing. After adopted or amended, requires the ordinance to be published at least once in a newspaper circulated in the county seat.

A.R.S. 11-1607 Requires the county to publish or place on its website an annual directory summarizing the subject matter of all currently applicable ordinances, regulations, rules, and substantive policy statements.

The table below provides a listing of currently applicable ordinances.  Unofficial copies for those with a "Document Number" are available through the County Recorder's website.  Copies may also be obtained by submitting a "Public Records Request" at the Board of Supervisor's office.

Regulations, rules and substantive policy statements may be adopted by ordinances or resolutions.  Resolutions are listed on the Resolutions & Proclamations pages.
