Reimbursement Agreement — Fort Tuthill Sewer Utility Extension Project

April 25, 2023

Local residents may receive a letter notifying them of an opportunity to participate in a reimbursement agreement. This is an agreement between a governing body (City of Flagstaff) and a developer who pays for an extension of city infrastructure (water, sewer, or reclaimed piping system) for their project.

The developer is allowed to offer this benefit – connection to the new infrastructure – to potential residents within the project area and be reimbursed by additional users, to offset those initial costs, through the reimbursement agreement.

Currently, Coconino County is the developer of a sewer main extension to the Fort Tuthill area, enabling surrounding residents to participate in connecting to City sewer.

March 23, 2023

Areas in Foxglenn Park have been closed due to a sanitary sewer overflow issue. Recent rain and snow melt have infiltrated the sewer system, causing raw wastewater to seep intermittently from the manholes in the park. The rear parking area, playground, and rear playing fields are closed until further notice. Please avoid the closure area as crews work through this issue.

The Butler Street parking lot and adjacent baseball fields remain open. 

Updates will be provided as they become available. Please direct your questions or concerns to or call (928) 213-2400
