KINGMAN - The City Council today will hold the second and potentially final public hearing on extending the city's home rule option before November's election.
Home rule allows cities in Arizona to exempt certain funds from state-imposed spending limits. In Kingman, they are enterprise funds regarding water, sewer and sanitation, which are paid for through user fees.
The vast majority of Arizona's cities have some type of home rule option. Voters in Kingman have approved it every four years since 1988.
Also on tap for tonight's meeting is a proposed memorandum of understanding between the city and the Chamber of Commerce, which wants to sell decorative bricks for placement in the right of way along Route 66 and it wants the city to be the depository for proceeds from the sale.
The money earned from the bricks would be used for beatification projects around the city.
Tonight's meeting starts at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall, 310 N. Fourth St.
