5 things to know: County Board of Supervisors


Mohave Valley Community Park

Mohave Valley Community Park is back on the regular agenda for Mohave County Board of Supervisors to look at clarifying an agreement with park developers.

The meeting is 9:30 a.m. Monday at the County Administration Building, 700 W. Beale St. Anyone wishing to speak during call to the public must fill out a request form prior to the meeting.

Mohave Valley Park was continued from the board’s Nov. 20 meeting, and from the Oct. 2 meeting prior to that, as the board directed county staff to meet with the nonprofit group behind the park and come back with an amendment to the agreement.

The board also wants an update on the intergovernmental agreement with Colorado River Union High School District, which uses the park for sporting events.

Mohave County dedicated $250,000 toward park improvements, and Supervisor Buster Johnson has asked to see receipts on where that money was being spent.

Mohave Valley Park (MVP), a nonprofit organization, was formed with the purpose of assisting the county in acquiring and improving the park.

The group was responsible for acquiring equipment and constructing certain improvements to the park, including sidewalks, basketball courts and picnic areas.

Upon completion of those improvements, MVP agrees to lease the property from Mohave County for 25 years for park and recreation purposes.

Golden Valley Improvement District

Adoption of Golden Valley Improvement District resolution to ratify the board’s previous decision to levy and collect taxes on the fifth-phase improvement project, including collecting delinquent taxes and the sale of properties for nonpayment of taxes through lien sales in February.

BMX lease agreement

Approve four-year lease agreement between Mohave County and Custom Opts BMX for developing, operating and maintaining recreational bicycle facilities on 2 acres of county land leased from the BLM in Bullhead City.

Organizational redesign

Approve organizational redesign with Public Works road and traffic control division through placement of positions at $19.49 an hour for road division office specialist; $17.26 an hour for road division office assistant; and $19.49 an hour for traffic control division office specialist.

Authorize working on personal time

On the consent agenda, authorize Public Works Director Steve Latoski to work during personal time through his former employer, Dunn Engineering Associates of Westhampton Beach, New York, to provide traffic engineering work and onsite traffic supervision for the 2018 U.S. Golf Open at Shinnecock Hills in Southampton, New York.
