Condensed landowner "bill of rights" in Arizona

Arizona Revised Statutes ("ARS") 11-1601 through 1610 give landowners certain rights in dealing with the County.  You can see all these statutes via

Notably, "The board of supervisors shall receive complaints concerning ordinances, regulations [etc., and] may recommend actions to alleviate [items] alleged to violate this article."  See ARS 11-1608.

Here's a condensation of ARS 11-1602:  "To ensure fair and open regulation by counties, a person:
.  "1. Is eligible for reimbursement of ... expenses if [he] prevails by adjudication on the merits against a county in a [lawsuit] regarding a county decision ....
.  "2. Is entitled to receive information and notice regarding inspections ....
.  "3. Is entitled to have a county not base a licensing decision [on] requirements ... not specifically authorized ... in section 11-1604.
.  "4. May have a county approve or deny [a] license application within a predetermined period of time ....
.  "5. Is entitled to receive written or electronic notice from a county on denial of a license application:
.  "6. Is entitled to receive information regarding the ... application process ....
.  "7. May inspect all [laws and policies] of a county, including a directory of documents, at the office of the county or [its] website ....
.  "8.... may expect counties to avoid duplication of other laws that do not enhance regulatory clarity and to avoid dual permitting ....
.  "9. May file a complaint with the board of supervisors ...."

ARS 11-1603(A) says "A county inspector who enters any premises [to conduct] an inspection shall:
.  "1.  Present photo identification ....
.  "2.  ... state the purpose of the inspection and the legal authority for conducting [it].
.  "3.  Disclose any ... inspection fees.
.  "4.  Except for a food and swimming pool inspection, afford an opportunity to have [a] representative ... accompany the ... inspector ... except during confidential interviews...."

1603(B) requires an inspector to give various notices; then comes
.  "C.  A county inspector shall obtain the signature of the regulated person or on-site representative ... indicating that the [person or representative] has read the writing prescribed in subsection B ... and is notified of [his] rights....
.  "D.  A county ... shall give a copy of, or provide electronic access to, the inspection report to the [person or representative] ....
.  "E.  The ... report shall contain deficiencies identified during an inspection.  Unless otherwise provided by law, the county may provide the [person] an opportunity to correct
the deficiencies unless the county determines that [they] are:
.      "1.  Committed intentionally.
.      "2.  Not correctable within a reasonable period of time as determined by the county.
.      "3.  Evidence of a pattern of noncompliance.
.      "4.  A risk to any person, the public health, safety or welfare or the environment.
.  "F.  If the county allows the [person] an opportunity to correct the deficiencies [he] shall notify the county when [they] have been corrected.  Within thirty working days of receipt ... the county shall ... notify [him] whether or not [he] is in substantial compliance, unless the determination is not possible due to ... normal operations at the premises.  If [he] fails to correct the deficiencies or the county determines [they] have not been corrected within a reasonable period of time, the county may take any enforcement action authorized by law ....
.  "G.  A county decision pursuant to subsection E or F ... is not an appealable county action.
.  "H.  At least once every month ... a county shall provide the [person] with an update ... on ... any county action resulting from an inspection ....
.  "J.  This section... does not apply:
.      "1.  To criminal [or] undercover investigations ....
.      "2.  If the county inspector or regulator has reasonable suspicion [of] criminal activity.
.      "3.  Inspections by a county board of health or a local health department pursuant to [ARS] 36-603.
.  "K.  If a county inspector ... gathers evidence in violation of this section, the violation shall ... be a basis to exclude the evidence in a civil or administrative proceeding [unless] the penalty sought is the denial, suspension or revocation of [a] license or a civil penalty of more than one thousand dollars.
.  "L.  Failure of a county employee to comply with this section:
.      "1.  [Is] cause for disciplinary action or dismissal ....
.      "2.  Shall be considered by the judge ... as grounds for reduction of any fine or civil penalty....
.  "N.  This section:
.      "1.  Shall not be used to exclude evidence in a criminal proceeding.
.      "2.  Does not apply to a county inspection that is requested by the [person]."

ARS 11-1604(A) says "A county shall not base a licensing decision ... on a licensing requirement ... that is not specifically authorized by statute, rule, ordinance or delegation agreement."  This matters when, for instance, a county tries to get a person to give up part of his property in exchange for getting a permit.

11-1605 governs time limits for handling applications.

11-1606 says "A county ... shall provide the following information ... at the time the applicant obtains an application for a license:
.  "1.  A list of all of the steps the applicant is required to take ....
.  "2.  The applicable licensing time frames.
.  "3.  The name and telephone number of a county contact person who can ... provide assistance ....
.  "4.  The website address and any other information, if applicable, to allow the regulated person to use electronic communication with the county.
.  "5.  Notice that an applicant may receive a clarification from the county of its interpretation ... as provided in [ARS] 11-1609."

11-1607 requires the county to "publish, or prominently place on the county website, at least annually a directory summarizing ... all currently applicable ordinances, regulations and substantive policy statements....  The [items] shall be open to public inspection at the office of the county or the county website."

11-1608 says "The board of supervisors shall receive complaints concerning ordinances, regulations, substantive policy statements or county practices alleged to violate this article.  The [BOS] may review any [such item] and may hold hearings [and] recommend actions to alleviate the [items] alleged to violate this article."

11-1609 says
.  "A.  An applicant for a license ... may request a county to clarify its interpretation or application of a [law or policy] affecting the procurement of that license by [making] a written request that states:
.     "1.  The name and address of the applicant ....
.     "2.  The [law or policy] that requires clarification.
.     "3.  Any facts relevant to the requested ruling.
.     "4.  The applicant's proposed interpretation ....
.     "5.  Whether ... the issues or related issues are being considered by the county in connection with an existing license or license application.
.  "B.  On receipt of a request ... the county may meet with the applicant ... and shall respond within thirty days ... with a written explanation [and] provide the applicant with an opportunity to meet and discuss the county's written explanation.
.  "C.  The county may modify [the] written explanation ... if required by a change in the law ...."

11-1610 lists exceptions to coverage, most of which don't apply to the general run of cases.
