Action Requested
Public Works - Approve acceptance of a Quitclaim Deed for three parcels in the Palo Verde Estates Subdivision, Black Canyon City, and authorize the payment of back taxes owed on the three parcels. (District 2 - Supervisor Thurman)
Brief Explanation of Need

Yavapai County has maintained Ironwood Road as a paved roadway for almost two decades. The original subdivision plat for Palo Verde Estates did not include Ironwood Road or a dedication to the public for it; however, the developer, Transamerica Title Insurance Company, later decided to create Ironwood Road by retaining title to the four 50-foot wide parcels that the roadway traverses: APN 502-19-010A/011B/012/015. Unfortunately, the developer never followed through, by dedicating the property as a public roadway or transferring title to the County, and taxes continued to accrue on the property.


When the taxes became delinquent on APN 502-19-012, the Public Works Department acquired the parcel by Supervisors' Deed in 2005 for the sum of $1,085.71. The owner of the three remaining parcels that Ironwood Road traverses has quitclaim his interest in the parcels, which allows the County to acquire title to the property and perfect the right-of-way for Ironwood Road by accepting the Quitclaim Deed and paying the $1,176.09 in back taxes owing.


The Public Works Department respectfully requests that the Board approve acceptance of the Quitclaim Deed and authorize the payment of the back taxes owing.

Roger McCormick, Public Works Assistant Director
