The term “100-year flood” can be misleading. It is not the flood event which occurs only once in a 100-year time span. Rather, it is a flood discharge that has a 1% chance of being equaled or exceeded each year. The 100-year flood could occur more than once in a relatively short period of time
The 100-year flood zone is used by the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) as the standard for floodplain management to determine flood risk. For example, a structure located in a 100-year floodplain has a 26% chance of suffering flood damage during the term of a 30-year mortgage.

You may wish to compose your detailed answers to these questions before you begin completing the application. You may copy and paste your answers to the questions into the online application.
If you are submitting a paper application, you may either obtain a copy of the questions from our office or copy the questions off our website. Many supplemental questions require answers.
Positions which have "Continuous" listed as the closing date will be open to applications until enough qualified applicants are assembled to begin the interview process. At that point the job announcement will be pulled from the Internet. Apply as early as possible to assure you are considered for these job openings..
At each step in the selection process you must be prepared to demonstrate your qualifications. Completing a detailed application is the first step.
It is important to read the job announcement and to supply detailed information about your experience and skills as they relate to the description of the job. It is particularly important to take note of the information in the "Minimum Requirements" section.
MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS: All job announcements contain minimum requirements. These are the qualifications you MUST have in order to qualify for the job unless substitutions are listed below the section. Be sure you clearly identify on your application that you meet these minimums.
SUBSTITUTIONS: Some job openings allow substitutions for the minimum requirements. Most often the substitutions allow directly related experience to substitute for educational requirements or vice versa.
PREFERENCES: Applicants who meet the preferred qualifications or ideal candidate description (in addition to the minimum requirements) will be a closer match for a job opening and will be considered stronger candidates.
NOTES: This section provides specific information about the job (i.e. unusual schedules, call-back for emergency requirements, work performed in multiple locations, grant funding, limited appointment, etc..
If you are selected for an interview you will be contacted by the hiring department within a few weeks of the closing date. If you are not selected for an interview, you will receive a letter either by email or Postal Service, depending on the notification preference you indicated in your profile. Your email notification may go to your Junk Mail if your email security does not recognize Coconino County as a safe sender.
You may also check the status of your application(s) using the system on the Employment website. If you still need additional information regarding your status and a few weeks have passed, please call Human Resources at (928) 679-7100.
So what can you do as an applicant to maximize your opportunity for employment with Coconino County?
1. Fill out your application completely. The application may be the very first impression we have of you, your skills and abilities. A professional, descriptive application gives us an idea of your skill sets and strengths and is the first step in a successful hire. It is important that your application show all of the relevant education and experience that you possess. Applications may be disqualified if they are incomplete. Coconino County requires that a separate application be submitted for each position for which you are applying. It is important that you apply by the close of business (5:00 pm) on the close date. If the position is “Open Until Filled” applications are sent over periodically for review and the position may be closed as soon as a qualified applicant is hired.
2. Review the minimums, preferences and ideal candidate description of the open position. We first review the candidate’s skills to ensure the person meets the Minimum Qualifications necessary to perform the duties of the position. Once that is determined, we look for additional skills—specifically those mentioned as preferences or ideal candidate qualities. If you possess those skills and experience, list it clearly on the application. If you are unsure where to put the information, use the additional information box. If you don’t possess that particular experience, but have what you consider a similar skill set, write that down too.
3. Be specific on your application. If the posting lists Microsoft Word as a preference and you have experience with Microsoft Word, do not write Microsoft Office. A person with Microsoft Office experience might be strong with Excel, but not Word. Do not leave your skill description up to interpretation. It isn’t possible to list everything on a single application, so tailor your application to specifically highlight the preferences for each position. If you are applying for several positions at once, make certain the preferences are addressed for each opening.
4. Your resume is not a legal document. Because your resume is not a legal document, we require that the application be completely filled out. Do not write “see resume.” You may elect to submit a resume with your application to further highlight your experience, but it should be a supporting document only.
5. We use a Decision Matrix to determine who will move forward in the recruitment process to interviews. A Decision Matrix is an objective tool that weights preferences in order to score applications quantitatively. The skill sets listed in the preferences and ideal candidate description listed on the posting become criteria for moving forward in the process and are assigned points. Each candidate who meets the minimum qualifications will be assigned points for each criteria they identify. The highest scoring applications will move forward through interviews and/or testing.
6. Prepare for your interview. Apart from skill sets, the interview process evaluates your ability to get along with others, work in a team environment and communicate effectively. Every position is different and, therefore, the questions we ask during interviewing will reflect what the hiring manager is seeking. In general, we look for Capability (the person’s hard skills and education), Commitment (the person’s internal desire to do the job) and Chemistry (the person’s fit into our environment) and, finally, someone who shares our organizational values including honesty, respect, integrity, responsibility and community. Think about what sort of questions you would ask if you were the hiring manager and prepare honest responses to those questions. Think of past examples of work performance that demonstrated your strengths and skills as well as opportunities for growth and development.
7. If you don’t know, just ask. If you have questions regarding the application, the recruitment process or the position, don’t hesitate to call Human Resources. You may reach us at (928)679-7100.

Full Cash Value (FCV) is used to compute secondary taxes—including bonds, budget overrides and special districts such as fire, flood control and other limited purpose districts. FCV is a reflection of the property sales market and consists of land and improvements
Primary Assessed Value is calculated by applying a ratio (percentage) to the Limited Property Value. The Assessed Value of each property class is determined using percentages set by Arizona Revised Statutes, Title 42, Chapter 12 Property Classification. The ratios are applied to the Limited Property Value of a property to determine the property’s Primary Net Assessed Value. The percentage ratio for the more common properties is:
Commercial Property – 18%Vacant Land - 15%Residential Property - 10%
State Aid to Education is a deduction from the Primary Property Tax that residential property owners receive on their Primary residence per Arizona Revised Statute 15-972, State limitation on homeowner property taxes; additional State aid to school districts; definitions. The maximum deduction for tax year 2017 is $600.
The Assessor is mandated by Arizona State Statutes to value property at its Full Cash (market) Value. There are three methods of appraising value:Sales Comparison (also known as Market) – This method compares your property to other similar properties that have recently sold, and is used mostly for homes and land. The 2018 values are based on sales and market conditions that occurred 18 months ago, beginning in January 2015.Replacement Cost (less depreciation) – This method is based on how much it would cost, at today’s material and labor prices, to replace your property with a similar structure. This calculation is used primarily for commercial buildings, homes that are not typical, or homes located in a remote area.Income (commercial property) – This method is based on the income potential of a commercial property. Using operating income and expense data provided by the property owner, the value is determined by capitalizing the potential net income.
The primary net assessed value is divided by 100 and multiplied by the tax rate to determine property taxes owed. Tax Rates are set by all budget authorities and are separated into two types:Primary Rates are set by government entities such as counties, cities, towns, community colleges and school districts. They are applied to the Limited Property Value to determine taxes due to support the basic expenses of government and schools.Secondary Rates are set by special districts and fire districts, and for the repayment of voter-approved bonds. In most cases, taxpayers vote for the formation of these districts and for bond issues.
The taxes on each annual tax notice are the result of several calculations: 1) the Limited Property Value multiplied by 2) the assessment ratio multiplied by 3) the tax rates established through the budget process by each taxing jurisdiction on your tax notice.
Once taxes are levied, the only way they can be adjusted is if an error was made during the assessment process (e.g., the square footage of a home or improvement was miscalculated, exemptions were not applied to the parcel, the Legal Class is not correct). The first department to contact is the County Treasurer at 928-679-8188 or 877-500-1818; or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org If the issue is related to the assessment process or specific taxing jurisdictions, you will be directed to the correct department or agency.
Property owners are encouraged to attend the Truth in Taxation hearings conducted by each of the taxing jurisdictions during their budget process each spring. Newly passed legislation that changes tax ratios can increase the burden on residential property owners. Recent voter approved bond issues can also have the effect of increasing taxes over prior years.
We hope this information is helpful to you in understanding your property tax bills and the assessment process. Please visit the Treasurer’s website for more information and to obtain contact information for each taxing jurisdiction.
Coconino County Government property taxes are only a portion of the total tax bill. The Coconino County Treasurer collects taxes for the County, schools, cities and towns, community college, special districts and libraries; then distributes the tax dollars to each taxing jurisdiction. For more information on specific tax jurisdictions, citizens are encouraged to contact them directly.
