Work moves forward on law enforcement training track

PRESCOTT - The Yavapai County Board of Supervisors Monday transferred $136,949 from the county General Fund to the Northern Arizona Regional Training Academy track fund.

Capital Improvements Coordinator Jim Holst said the money would pay for leveling a seven-acre portion of the 20-acre parcel not part of the NARTA track.

County officials plan to relocate the county's impound yard to the site adjacent to the Yavapai County Fairgrounds on Highway 89A north of Prescott Valley.

Holst said other expenses include paving the three-acre impound yard and additional fencing.

Holst said improvements to the access road from Highway 89A to the property is a separate item that requires further discussion.

The supervisors also approved a $417,480 contract with Asphalt Paving and Supply, Inc. to pave the NARTA track.

Holst said the county received five bids for the project, two of them less than the engineer's estimate.

"Staff is recommending the low bid," Holst said.
