At least five positions have opened up in Somerton city government thanks to retirements and resignations.

Somerton City Manager Gerardo Cabrera and Somerton Cocopah Fire Chief Paul DeAnda announced their retirements recently. DeAnda told KAWC he wanted a change but wants to continue to serve South Yuma County in some capacity.

Somerton Mayor Jerry Anaya confirmed to KAWC that the directors for the Public Works and Parks and Recreation departments resigned in addition to an engineering technician.
