PRESCOTT - The Yavapai County Board of Supervisors on Monday will discuss a proposal by the City of Prescott to partner in a bypass project intended to prod the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) into widening Highway 89 all the way from Chino Valley to Pioneer Parkway.
The board will consider whether to approve a letter submitted by the City of Prescott to go to ADOT that says the two governments will work together to build a realignment of Willow Creek Road, which ADOT has indicated is necessary for the state to widen Highway 89 south of Deep Well Ranch Road.
The letter refers to the project as "a 100 percent locally funded project with an estimated cost of approximately $6 million."
Chip Davis, chairman of the Board of Supervisors, said last week that the board would have to consider whether the alignment the city proposes is also in the county's best interest before it would match the city's promised $3 million.
Also on the agenda:
-Assessor Pam Pearsall makes another run at having her aerial-photography pilot project, Pictometry, approved, after the board put it off during budget negotiations last week;
-Judge Arthur Markham brings his revised proposal for home-detention monitoring bracelets before the board for approval. The bracelets monitor both location and alcohol use, and the vendor will supply them at no cost to the county-defendants will pay for them;
-The board will take a look at standardizing a policy for accepting credit cards for services provided by county departments. Departments that take them now use different vendors and some charge a convenience fee to cover the service charge while others do not.
The meeting will be held at 9 a.m., at the County Administrative Building Services, 1015 Fair St. in Prescott, and can be viewed by teleconference at the County Administrative Services Complex in Cottonwood at 10 S. 6th St.
