KINGMAN - Kingman Police will soon have the computer software needed that will allow officers to better communicate with dispatchers.

The City Council on Tuesday approved an agreement with New World Systems at an already-approved fiscal impact of about $262,000.

Mayor Janet Watson and the City Council approved a total expenditure of nearly $440,000 for the Mobile Data Project.

The units provide officers with real-time information and feature a screen.

In other City Council news:

• Kingman High School student Lane Pelham took advantage of the Council's public comment portion of the meeting to plug the school's Spring Showcase from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. March 31.

Pelham spoke passionately about the school's numerous programs, telling Council members he has "come out of my shell."

Members of the community are invited to attend the showcase to learn about the school's academic programs, the high number of clubs and athletes.

The students want to get involved in Kingman, and promise business owners they have something to offer them and to the community, said Pelham.

• Watson was granted authority to sign documents regarding federal grants that could help fund the long-discussed Kingman Crossing and Rancho Santa Fe traffic interchange projects.

The Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act President Barack Obama signed into law in January set aside $600 million in awards. While not identical to Obama's now-expired Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery grant program the acronym TIGER remains in place.

Kingman wants to compete for a share of that funding, something it has attempted through five rounds in the past without success.
