Kingman council figuring out how to fill vacancy

KINGMAN - The City Council at tonight's meeting will discuss how to fill a vacancy in the wake of former Mayor John Salem's mid-term resignation.

State law mandates that cities such as Kingman fill vacancies by appointment, but no direction is given regarding the process.

City Attorney Carl Cooper has recommended the City Council direct staff to accept resumes and letters of interest from qualified persons.

To be qualified, a person must live within the city limits and be eligible to vote.

Janet Watson has replaced Salem and will serve until his term expires on the last day of 2014. Whoever replaces Watson will also serve until Dec. 31, 2014.

The City Council also must elect a vice mayor from within its ranks to replace Watson.

In a related matter, the City Council is expected to approve a modification to city codes regarding consolidated elections. They will be held in the fall rather than the spring, and the City Council could remove a council member from the position of vice mayor for any reason.

The modification was added to a new code that automatically names the vice mayor as mayor in the event of a mid-term resignation.

In another important topic, the City Council is expected to approve an easement agreement with Walgreens and the owners of the land the company leases at Stockton Hill Road and Airway Avenue.

The city will pay about $120,000 for nearly 6,000 square feet, plus escrow fees, for the easement.

It was the last piece of land the city needed to obtain in order to finish a widening project on Airway Avenue.

Tonight's meeting begins at 5:30 p.m. in Council Chambers, 310 N. Fourth Street.
