Meeting Schedule Board of Supervisors Hearing Room Administrative Complex 135 North Pinal Street Florence, AZ 85132
What does the Board of Supervisors Do?
Every year, the Pinal County Board of Supervisors, as required by law, crafts a budget providing revenue for individual departments and elected offices. One of the primary jobs of the Board is to establish the county property tax rate and the budget for the coming year.
This budget provides the necessary finances to meet estimated expenditures. By state law, once the budget is approved, the county is bound to remain within its budget for that year. The Board of Supervisors also has the authority to fill vacancies in the county and legislative offices, other boards and commissions, pass resolutions, and enact ordinances and regulations as authorized by state law.
Because only the Board has the authority to decide certain issues, such as zoning changes, resolutions, and ordinances, these subjects constitute the remainder of the Board's responsibilities during the year.
There are two ways to observe the Board in session. The first option is to watch the Board live or view the recording on the BOS Videos page. The second option is to watch in person at the Pinal County Administrative Complex (“The Historical Courthouse”) in Florence. The address is 135 N. Pinal Street.
The best way to address your concerns to the board is by either addressing the board during the Call to Public time offered at the beginning of Supervisor meetings or contacting your district's Supervisor.
Call to Public
There is no statutory requirement for a "call to the public"; it is a privilege, not a right, and given at the discretion of the Board of Supervisors. A "call to the public" is the time period for members of the public to address the Board of Supervisors on any item of concern or to provide public input relating to subject matter within the Board of Supervisors authority or jurisdiction. Two things you should know:
Debate or dialogue with the Board is not allowed during Call to the Public. Pursuant to A.R.S. 38431.01, if it's not an agenda item, the Board response is limited to:
Asking staff to study the matter
Request placement on a future agenda
Respond to criticism
These three responses must take place at the conclusion of the call to the public.
Second, you have up to 3 minutes to address the Board. A warning system (card or light) may be used to time presentations. If you have several issues to address, it may be best to address one issue per meeting. If you attempt to discuss too much, you risk running out of time. As a general rule, it is best to write down and read your message to the Board on a single 8.5-inch by 11-inch page. This will help your message remain clear, on target, and within the given time.
Contacting Your District's Supervisor
An effective way to have your concern addressed by the Board is to get one of its members to advocate a cause on your behalf. Developing a relationship with your district's Supervisor is easy and important. Supervisors rely on public input to make informed decisions on behalf of their constituents.
