City attorney recommends denying all well site bids

KINGMAN - The several month-long controversy over the sale of four well sites in Golden Valley is back on City Council's agenda, and the city will decide Monday whether or not to accept any of the bids offered.

City Attorney Carl Cooper is recommending that Council deny all bids, as the city violated state law by not advertising the sale of the sites long enough.

The meeting Monday begins at 6 p.m. and will be held downtown in the Council Chambers, 310 N. Fourth St.

• Also on Monday, Council will hold a public hearing before ruling on a proposal to impose a secondary property tax to pay for bond debt from the 1994 Airway Avenue construction project. The cost to be distributed to homeowners in 2008 is $436,575. Voters have already approved the bonds for this project.

• The billboard sign issue for which Council created a committee at its last meeting will continue this week as Council will hear a request for a tri-vision billboard at Airway and Andy Devine avenues. The 12-by-24 square-foot sign requires a conditional use permit approved by Council.

• Council will hear the results of a survey from residents in the east Golden Gate Addition subdivision over a possible improvement district, and Mohave County Economic Development Deputy Director Jonas Peterson will present to Council the "Building Bridges to Business" program.
