The tentative budget for Yuma County next year is more than 50 percent higher than last year's. What does it include? And where did the money come from? On this episode of Arizona Edition Yuma County Administrator Susan Thorpe speaks with KAWC’s Lou Gum on this year's budget.  

Yuma International Airport

The Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) says over 1.4 million people passed through airport security Thursday. That's up from a little over 230,000 people on the same day last year. Airports across the country are seeing improving passenger numbers, but people flying is not the only measure of an Airport's health in a community. 

On this episode of Arizona Edition, Gladys Brown the Director of the Yuma International Airport speaks with KAWC's Lou Gum on why Yuma International is receiving statewide recognition following a global pandemic.

Behind the Yuma Multiversity is a push to expand access to higher education in Yuma County by a coalition of local individuals and businesses.
