The Board of Supervisors is the governing body of Mohave County. Its duties, by state law, are both legislative and executive. The Board, as a body, is responsible for the overall management of the County government operations. The Board appoints a County Administrator, responsible for the day to day operation of the County. The County Administrator supervises the work of appointed department directors and is responsible for the appointment of non-elected department directors, with concurrence of the Board. In addition, the Board appoints all members of the many boards and commissions that assist these programs.
The requirement for a Planning and Zoning Commission is contained in state statute (Arizona Revised Statute 11-802) as are the commission's duties. The commission's primary duty is to advise the Board of Supervisors in managing the orderly growth and physical development of Mohave County and to protect the health, safety, morals and general welfare of its citizens. The Commission will make changes to further the public interest but will not alter plans or review regulations solely for any individual, group or organization for their personal caprice, convenience or profit
There is a health, wellness and prevention movement happening across the United States. America's new health tagline is health starts where we live, learn, work and play. For decades, our primary focus on health began at the doctor's office. Today the focus is shifting to personal and community health practices in all our daily living environments. We must all work together to create a healthier America by accepting personal health responsibility, providing accessible health services and promoting community health engagement.
