KINGMAN – City Council members are set to learn of the marketing efforts made by Ignite Brand Marketing and KingmanCircle.com when they meet at 5:30 p.m. today.

The meeting will be held at Council Chambers, 310 N. Fourth St. City Council will also be taking comments from the public. Those wishing to address the council will need to fill out a request form in advance.

The discussion of marketing efforts comes as a request from Mayor Monica Gates on the status of KingmanCircle.com. Liza Noland of Ignite Brand Marketing, the team behind the website, will update the council on the team’s progress and marketing efforts.

KingmanCircle.com is a site dedicated to promoting tourism within Kingman. The site offers visitors a place to view city attractions, local businesses, upcoming events, news stories, and more. The site was created in an effort to increase longevity of local businesses, as well as be a hub for local news and events. Noland said on the website, “We want our local community to be in the loop about what is going on and we want everyone driving through or looking for a quick Arizona day trip to realize the hidden gem that is Kingman.”

Along with an update to Ignite Brand Marketing’s third quarter progress, the council is also set to discuss the firm’s request for fourth quarter payment. This request comes in response to the third quarter approval by the Tourism Development Commission at the May 4 meeting. The quarterly payment request is for $11,250, which is set to be the final payment.

Other items to be discussed at Tuesday’s meeting include:

• A request for approval of Mohave County Fire Officers Mutual Aid Agreement.

• Mohave County Historical Society for funding of a digital LED message board. A request of $17,000 will be discussed for the purchase and installation of the board. The board has been proposed to be installed at the Mohave Museum of History and Art.

• Discussion of plans for annual Fourth of July celebrations. City staff are seeking direction as to whether or not to plan for Kingman’s firework display.
