Yuma County Commissioner meetings, at which the adoption of any proposed policy, position, resolution, rule, regulation, or formal action occurs, shall be held only after full and timely notice to the public. The Bulletin Board outside of the Yuma Commissioner’s meeting room is the official posting location for all Commissioner and Planning Commission agendas, hearings, and public notices. Work-sessions and meetings scheduled by the Board of County Commissioners are subject to change and are posted 24 hours in advance of the meeting.
The Yuma County Commissioners hold two regular meetings a month. One is scheduled near the 15th of each month, depending on other meetings or Commissioner obligations. The second monthly meeting is generally the last working day of the month. The Commissioners may schedule special meetings.
Regular Commissioner meetings start at 8:00 a.m. and continue through the day until all business has been addressed. Regular meetings and special meeting agendas will be posted 24 hours in advance of the meeting time as required by CRS 24-6-402. A time can be reserved for individuals to speak at the Commissioners meetings, to request scheduling on the agenda; interested citizens should contact the Commissioners administration prior to the scheduled meeting at 970-332-5796.
Times noted on the agenda are an approximate time of when the board will be meeting with the party scheduled. The Commissioners reserve the right to hear agenda items in any order.
Meetings and work-sessions scheduled by the Board of County Commissioners are open to the public. Executive Sessions can be called during any meeting posted as a public meeting but not work-sessions. Executive Sessions will be closed to the public as outlined in the Colorado Revised Statutes 24-6-402.
Administrator Andrea Calhoon can be heard at open periods of time throughout the day. The Administrative report can include but is not limited to: discussion of calls, correspondence, personnel issues, and presentation of documents for approval; i.e., resolutions, intergovernmental agreements, well permits, grants, and similar documents for approval and signature.
The Yuma County Commissioners are invited and often attend the same meetings, and in order to save county mileage expenses, the Commissioners may travel together to these meetings. Meetings to which the Commissioners are invited are not posted at the Commissioners’ bulletin board.
