City of San Luis Annual Review

San Luis, Arizona – 2018 saw the arrival of new businesses and an economic rebound in San Luis, fueled by a thriving housing market and demand by residents for consumer goods and services, the city's mayor said.

Looking back on the year just completed, Mayor Gerardo Sanchez said he believes San Luis was able to strike a positive balance between business growth and City Hall spending on public infrastructure needs of residents.

Sanchez believes his and the city council's agenda for San Luis was validated by the results of the 2018 election season, which saw a crowded field of candidates compete for mayor and four council seats.

Town of Wellton Annual Review

The town of Wellton’s 2018 was spent shoring up the Coyote Wash Golf Course while signs of a new growth spurt began to sprout in the east Yuma County community. 

Town Manager Larry Killman said taking over management of the town-owned golf course from previous leaseholder John Bass on May 1 was the biggest project Wellton had to take on, due to the condition its 18 holes were in. 

“We’ve put $400,000 into it in the first six months, just basically sprinkler systems, and trying to fix things that haven’t been replaced. It was run-down, really bad,” he said.
