  Regular Agenda Item     3. M.    
Regular BOS Meeting
Meeting Date: 03/10/2020  
Submitted By: Marian Sheppard, Clerk of the Board
Department: Clerk of the Board of Supervisors  

Information
Request/Subject
Verification of a petition submitted for the requested de-annexation of properties from the boundaries of the Tri-City Regional Sanitary District (TRSD).
Background Information
On February 7, 2020, a letter from William Clemmens, attorney for the TRSD, was hand-delivered to the Clerk of the Board's office. The letter was accompanied by a petition that was signed by property owners living in the Vertical Heights area in Globe, Arizona, who wish for their properties to be de-annexed from the boundaries of the TRSD. The letter also informed the Clerk of the Board that per Arizona Revised Statute § 48-262 (A) (12), the Board of Supervisors must "determine the validity of the petitions presented."
Evaluation
On February 11, 2020, the Clerk of the Board met with Steve Jenson, Chief Deputy Assessor, to deliver the signed petitions for verification. Attached to this agenda item is the Assessor's Office report regarding the petition.

The Board of Supervisors must determine the validity of the petition. Once that is done and per statute, the TRSD governing body shall set a day, at least ten but not more than thirty days after that date, for a hearing on the request.
Conclusion
The Assessor's Office has verified that all those who signed the petition are owners of property in the Vertical Heights area (as listed by parcel number on the petition) except for parcel number 205-01-013A. It was determined that parcel number 205-01-013A is not within the taxing authority boundaries of the TRSD, nor was it signed by the owner of that parcel. The petition was signed by Patricia Holder and Mitchell Holder; however, the property owner is listed as Cyprus Miami Mining Corporation NKA Phelps Dodge Miami Inc. (now owned by Freeport McMoRan Copper & Gold).
Recommendation
It is recommended that the Board of Supervisors accept the report from the Assessor's Office and take such action to validate that the signatures match the owners of property as listed on the petition except for parcel number 205-01-013A.
Suggested Motion
Information/Discussion/Action to accept a report from the Assessor's Office regarding a petition signed by owners of property in the Vertical Heights area of Globe, Arizona requesting to be de-annexed from the boundaries of the Tri-City Regional Sanitary District (TRSD); and validate that all signatures are owners of property for the respective listed parcel numbers on the petition except for parcel number 205-01-013A which is not within the taxing authority boundaries of the TRSD and not signed by owners of the subject property.
