A Sedona area couple fighting a private development near their home — one that needed Planning & Zoning approval for a zone change to move forward — were rewarded with a seat on that same P&Z commission by a county supervisor to whom they made a major campaign donation.
Attempt to Fire Commissioners
Newly seated Yavapai County District 3 Supervisor Donna Michaels asked for the resignation of both of the Yavapai County Planning and Zoning Commissioners who represent her district, Mark Mumaw and Curt Lindner, via a letter on Jan. 1.
The letter erroneously claims that due to Arizona Revised Statute §11-802, Section D, Michaels could appoint “two new members to the commission effective January 1, 2021” and effectively fire Mumaw and Lindner.
