APS will approach the Yuma County Board of Supervisors this week for a permit to allow a facility on a 230 acre parcel near Hyder. The plant would be located about three-quarters of a mile north of Palomas Road on Avenue 75E.
The Supervisors will consider the permit at their meeting Monday. Other items on the agenda include:
