The commissioner of the Arizona Department of Real Estate, his staff and other agency representatives will be visiting the Payson area.
Commissioner Sam Wercinski and his staff will conduct a Community Outreach and Education (COE) program in Payson from 1 to 4 p.m. Friday, April 6.
The COE program sprang from Commissioner Wercinski's belief that there is a need to reach out to rural communities.
Department staff will present a public seminar on proper subdividing and offer assistance to real estate agents and the public who may have real estate related questions or concerns.
The COE team will be joined by staff from the state departments of Weights and Measures, Environmental Quality and Water Resources to discuss water resources, septic transfer requirements and how to avoid moving scams.
The meeting will include presentations on subdivision law, moving company scams, water and wastewater concerns, assistance with real estate license renewal and information on license and professional education.
The meetings will be held at the Gila Community College Payson campus at 210 N. Mud Springs Road.
Commissioner Wercinski said, "I value consumer and stakeholder input as a means to strengthen Arizona's real estate industry and serve and protect Arizona's public.
"To encourage this dialogue, we developed our COE program in addition to holding stakeholder meetings every two months. The public, industry and department mutually benefit with dialogue and education.
"Our efforts are providing results and we're excited with the opportunities to do more of this."
Yavapai County has already been visited by the Commissioner and the COE team. The visit to Gila County is being hosted by the Gila County Board of Supervisors. For more information, visit www.AZRE. gov.
