If you have property along, or in, the creek way, please complete a Cooperative Agreement Form. We are going to be doing construction work along the creek cleaning the debris before monsoon season happens. If you have any questions please call Michelle Yerkovich at 928-961-0117.

You can download and print the form here

Forms are also available at the Front Desk at City Hall. 150 N. Pine St. Globe, AZ 85501.

In the event of a flood warning:

  • Find safe shelter right away, or higher ground
  • Do not walk, swim or drive through floodwaters.
  • Turn Around, Don’t Drown!
  • Remember: just six inches of moving water can knock you down, and one foot of moving water can sweep your vehicle away.
  • Stay off bridges over fast-moving water

Depending on the type of flooding:

  • Evacuate if told to do so
  • Move to higher ground -- or a higher floor within a building
  • Stay where you are, if you're safe - Shelter in Place
