Citizens can assist us by reporting potentially hazardous road and drainage conditions to the Roads Division (contact information), and by noting the exact location of the problem (street and cross street). Emergencies occurring during non-business hours and on weekends should be reported to the Sheriff’s Department . The County can then take appropriate action.

Yavapai County is governed by State Statues as to how public funds are spent on roadways. Arizona Revised Statues 18-207 identifies how public funds may be spent on roads other than established County highways.
A NOTE ABOUT OUR FUNDING…
The Road Division receives its funding from the highway user (gasoline) taxes, not state sales taxes or local property taxes. These highway user taxes amount to approximately $61 per resident in the unincorporated area of Yavapai County.
The Road Division maintains a total of 1,590 miles of paved and unpaved roads in the unincorporated areas of Yavapai County.
No road fund labor, equipment, or material shall be used on roads that have not been approved for maintenance. To find out if a road has been approved for and is receiving County maintenance please contact the Public Works Department.
Please have your Assessor’s tax identification number (parcel number) available when calling so that we may verify your exact location.
If you are not sure if a road is public, please contact the Yavapai County Public Works Department.
Yavapai County can only verify whether a roadway is public and whether that roadway is approved for maintenance. Yavapai County does not have the capability to research the legal status of every roadway. If you are unsure of the legal status of your roadway or legal access to your property, please contact your title company for assistance.
The Road Division is responsible for trimming brush and trees that grow within the public right-of-way. (Adjacent to roadways)
If you see an area where the trees or brush obstruct visibility of the roadway, on-coming traffic, or associated traffic control devices, please call the Roads Division.
Brush growing along right-of-way that may obstruct vision from a private driveway is the responsibility of the property owner (or driveway owner).
