Know Yuma focuses on water
The next session of Know Yuma: Inside & Out will focus on Yuma's water rights and water issues in the Legislature. The event will be held at 7 a.m. Thursday in the council chambers at Yuma City Hall. It is free and includes a continental breakfast.
The issue came to the forefront recently with the introduction by House Speaker Andy Tobin of HB 2338, which would authorize the establishment of water augmentation authorities that could buy and sell water. The bill is opposed by Yuma County officials and agriculture interests statewide.
The Know Yuma series provides business people with information about the Yuma area. The meetings are hosted by the Yuma Sun in partnership with Greater Yuma Economic Development Corp., Yuma Visitors Bureau, Yuma County Chamber of Commerce and city of Yuma.
