KINGMAN - The City Council this week accepted a bid from Lantis Productions to put on the Fourth of July fireworks display for $26,505, the total of donations the Kingman Boomers nonprofit group collected from the community and local businesses.
The show will take place at the Mohave County Fairgrounds.
In other City Council news:
The Council approved an intergovernmental agreement between the city and the Mohave County Flood Control District, which provides roughly $800,000 to fund flood control projects in the city.
The funding will help pay for projects on Airway Avenue, Western Avenue, North Glen Road, the Kingman Crossing interchange design, Prospector Road construction, land acquisition for the railroad diversion project, Bull Mountain drainage channels and various drainage and maintenance erosion protection work.
The Council approved a resolution allowing the city to apply for a $250,000 planning assistance grant from the Arizona Department of Transportation.
The grant does not require matching funds from the city.
The Hualapai Indian Reservation joined the city in the application due to the entities' common interest in providing public transportation.
The project consists of consulting and a feasibility study serving Kingman and the communities of Golden Valley, Peach Springs, Chloride and Yucca. The project does not involve the Kingman Area Rapid Transit system.
