COTTONWOOD -- It looks like the Yavapai County Adult Probation office, now located at Aspen and Main Street in Cottonwood, may move to Camp Verde.

Yavapai County Facilities Manager Kenny VanKeuren told the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors Tuesday that the current lease is expiring June 30 for the 3,200-square-foot building that originally housed Southern Union Gas. The offices have been located in Cottonwood for 12 years and the monthly rental is $3,200.

VanKeuren showed a plan of the county property where the county jail and court facilities are located in Camp Verde. He said there is adequate space for two 5,000-square-foot buildings near the southeast corner of the two-story court building, with space for parking separate from the jail parking.

"Parking is a critical issue," Probation Department Director Billy Grobe told the Supervisors. She said that sometimes, cars are parked 3-deep at the Cottonwood office and visitors have to move one car to access another. Grobe said she has 23 staff members now using the building.

Supervisor Rowle Simmons suggested that Facilities also look at building a single two-story building on the county site with the second floor constructed as a shell to be finished when needed. The balance of the space could be used for parking, he said. Supervisor Craig Brown suggested that Facilities prepare several options both with one two story and two separate buildings.

Grobe said that being near the Interstate exit would also make it convenient for Black Canyon City staffers.

Grobe told the Verde Independent that the Cottonwood location was originally intended to be "temporary" when first leased. The adjacency to the jail and court would be convenient for her office in terms of transportation. She said it would even save Cottonwood transportation dollars to take probationers to the jail. She said it is certainly more centrally located.
