2017/8/7 BOS meeting agenda and attachments
Apparently the County is DETERMINED to make it as difficult as possible for the public to view and analyze supporting documents.

"... What this state has done with its employees’ retirement plans is poorly planned at best, criminally stupid at worst. In my opinion the only way to fix the pension debt issue for the state to enact a 1 cent sales tax to cover everyone’s shortfall. ..." -- YET, he voted NO to the Mohave County sales tax, leaving a property tax increase as the only alternative to raise taxes.
