The Hayden Town Council has hired Planet Consulting to conduct the planning and coordination to create the Hayden General Plan. The General Plan will address key community issues such as housing, land use and economic development.

Planet Consulting along with the Town Council and Staff will be conducting surveys and outreach activities to help gather input from Hayden residents. The consulting group will also invite other community partners such as Central Arizona College, Southern Gila County Economic Development Council, ASARCO, the proposed Apache Sky Casino and the Towns of Winkelman and Kearny to participate in the planning process. The update to the general plan is required by the State of Arizona; the plan will help the town to plan for future development and set development goals for the community.

The council also approved town staff to purchase a backhoe in the amount of $98,610, and authorized the Town Manager to sign a contract with the lowest responsible bidder to replace the town hall roof. The council also approved a resolution to endorse the Gila County half cent sales tax for transportation ballot initiative.

Mayor Charles “Chale” Vega introduced the proposed Code of Ethics for the Town of Hayden. The Code will create a policy for the Town of Hayden, Staff Council and Advisory Board Members to uphold, promote and demand the highest standards of ethics from all of its officials. Approval of the Code of Ethics was tabled.
