The Staff at Yuma County are “Spreading the Warmth,” this new year and running a coat drive to continue to share the warmth of the holiday season. Yuma County is collecting new or gently used, clean winter coats of all sizes, hats, gloves, scarves, and other wooly, winter apparel for folks in need of assistance staying warm this winter season. Large collection boxes will be located at the Yuma County Courthouse and Yuma City Hall. Coats and winter apparel will be collected from January 4th to January 14th. Anyone in need of a winter coat and apparel can pick one up at the Election Center in Wray or the Concessions Building at the YC Fairgrounds in Yuma, on Sunday January 17th between 1:00 and 4:00 pm. For more information, please call the Yuma County Clerk and Recorder’s Office at 332-5897.

You will quickly recognize that the primary focus of this year’s budget presentation is personnel, as it has been in the last several budget proposals. Competitive compensation for current staff that make this agency operate in a professional and efficient way, as well as increased staffing levels to share the heavy load of responsibility is of utmost importance in comparison to every other funding request.
