Meeting Date: 10/03/2018  
Submitted For: Kim Kapin
Department: Clerk of the Board  

Action Requested
Board of Supervisors - Final hearing for adoption of Ordinance 2018-1, an ordinance of the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors regulating portable communication devices and texting while operating a motor vehicle.  Ordinance Number altered to 2018-2; approved by unanimous roll call vote
Brief Explanation of Need

The State Legislature has considered, but failed to adopt, legislation that would prohibit texting while driving throughout the State of Arizona. Therefore, local jurisdictions must determine individually whether or not to adopt an Ordinance to prohibit texting while driving. If approved by the Board of Supervisors, this Ordinance would be effective throughout the unincorporated areas of Yavapai County, and within the jurisdictional boundaries of any City or Town that chooses to adopt the Ordinance.   

The Ordinance and Notice to the Public were published in The Verde Independent and The Daily Courier on September 5, 2018.
