KINGMAN - The City Council on Tuesday quietly adopted its budget and capital improvement plan for fiscal year 2013-2014 that begins July 1.

After a series of workshops, roundtable discussions and public hearings that have occurred since February, there apparently wasn't much to talk about as the Council with no discussion from elected officials, city staff or members of the public unanimously passed the resolution 5-0.

Councilmen Richard Anderson and Mark Wimpee were at a conference and did not attend the meeting.

The City Council approved the following items:

• The Council adopted the International Family of Building Codes. This ordinance goes into effect July 1. Builders are encouraged to obtain publications that outline the changes, particularly to the Energy Code, so they can submit plans that conform to the new rules.

• The City Council agreed to make a payment of about $49,000 to the Kingman Powerhouse Visitor Center for tourism services. The contract is per an agreement with the Tourism Development Commission.

• Mayor John Salem was given authority to sign all documents related to grant funds needed to pay for interchange projects at Rancho Santa Fe Parkway and Kingman Crossing, as well as funding to build the Route 66 pedestrian crossing project.

• The City Council and the Whistle Stop Railroad Club entered into a professional services agreement. The Tourism Development Commission provided the museum at the Train Depot with a one-time payment of $15,400 to start the museum. The agreement calls for the facility to become self-sufficient after 12 months.

• The job descriptions and titles of several city employees were changed as part of an employees' Compensation and Classification Plan.

The action was taken due to changes made during the budgeting process.
