Supervisors to appoint board chair, vice-chair

Yavapai County Supervisors are expected to appoint a new chair and vice chair for 2014 during Monday's Board of Supervisors meeting, according to the agenda.

Supervisor Chip Davis is the current board chairman, with Supervisor Rowle Simmons acting as vice-chairman.

Chair and vice-chair appointees serve for one year, county administrator Phil Bourdon said. The new chairman and vice chairman appointees will take over the beginning of January 2014.

Supervisors will also be discussing the Affordable Care Act and how it may affect Yavapai County.

"The reason we are doing that is to start the discussion with the board of supervisors on how that will impact the county as well as how it will impact the Yavapai County Combined Trust," Bourdon said.

The trust is a self-funded health trust that not only includes the county, but Yavapai College, the City of Prescott and the town of Chino Valley.

"I think you are going to see many agencies begin to discuss this over the next year. It's complex; you have to have experts advising you," Bourdon said.

According to Bourdon, the ACA could affect how the county hires temporary and contract employees.

Also on the agenda:

•Approval of a property tax appeal and refund of overpayment of taxes to the Prescott Valley Center LLC.

• Approval to change a part-time Assessor Clerk II position to a full-time position.

• Approve Pioneer Park Recreational Facilities Agreement with the City of Prescott.

• Presentation regarding services of the Facilities Department.

The meeting is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. in the Hearing Room, 10 South 6th St., Cottonwood. The meeting can also be viewed via teleconference at the Yavapai County Administration Building, 1015 Fair St., Prescott.
