Supervisor Clint Hickman

Maricopa County has continued to see declines in COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths over the past several weeks.  The percent of positive COVID-19 tests has also been declining steadily.  

The Board is pleased with the recent decline in cases and remain committed to ensuring community health as case levels drop.  We receive regular updates from Public Health and will take case numbers, rate of infection, and all other relevant factors into consideration when considering the future of the mask regulation.

With so much information being shared, it can be overhwhelming and confusing as to its valididty; all the more reason it is important to continue to seek out reliable sources.


As we head into the holiday weekend be safe and stay healthy.

Additional Businesses Reopening

Maricopa County is now considered 'moderate' based on the Arizona Department of Health benchmarks, meaning additional businesses will begin reopening with restrictions.  Learn more about the benchmarks and reopening restrictions as set forth by Governor Ducey here.

School Reopening Data

Maricopa County Public Health now has two consecutive weeks of countywide data that has been updated on the school metrics dashboard

The dashboard looks at three benchmarks set by Arizona Department of Health Services.  All three must be met for two consecutive weeks before Public Health would recommend a school district move from distance learning to a hybrid model of in-person and online classes.

Flood Control District

The Flood Control District has a program to help local cities solve small-scale flooding problems. The Small Projects Assistance Program (SPAP) allows cities and towns apply for up to $500,000 in funding to design and build smaller, localized solutions. The Board of Supervisors recently approved two projects in District 4.

The first project will straighten Powder House Wash and add a low water crossing directing stormwater away from local residents and structures. The area is subject to flooding and has experienced events that have flooded roadways and nine homes.

A partnership with the City of Glendale, the Royal Shadows Drainage Improvement Project will provide additional capacity for drainage from the Royal Shadows Subdivision. Five homes within the subdivision, located at 67th Avenue and Olive Avenue, have experienced flooding from several minor rain events. The project could also include the installation of a storm drain.
