KINGMAN – Kingman City Council will hold five public hearings, in addition to reviewing the Kingman Fire Department’s annual report and Fire Station 5 project, at its meeting set for 5 p.m. Tuesday, March 2.

Council will consider an operations agreement with Kingman Railroad Museum Inc. for the operation of the Kingman Railroad Museum.

Two changes have been made to the agreement, one being the removal of an excess insurance requirement, and the other adding flexibility for the organization to adjust days and times of operation.

Council may also approve an intergovernmental agreement with the Arizona Department of Transportation for a Highway Safety Improvement Grant Project that would see the installation of traffic calming features such as curb extensions downtown, and speed feedback signs on Beale Street from Grandview to 10th Street, among others.

The initial cost to the city for project development administration would be $1,710, matched with $28,290 in federal aid.

Council will also consider approval of a job order contract with Kincheloe Construction for an underground utility pipeline construction project that will extend a sewer line in Airway Avenue east of Prospector Street.

Kincheloe has submitted a guaranteed maximum price proposal of $230,655, which would be paid from the sewer expansion fund.

In other business, council will consider an indigent counsel contract renewal with Whitney Whitney Baldridge Atkinson in the amount of $150,000, as well as $125,000 being spent to repair a water production booster at Castle Rock Pump Station.

Also on the agenda for consideration is a school safety program cooperative agreement with Kingman Unified School District. KUSD would pay for the salary and benefits of a KPD school resource officer, who would be dedicated to Kingman Middle School and Manzanita Elementary School.

The first public hearing set for Tuesday is in regards to development fees. Development fees are one-time fees imposed on new development. Eyed areas for such fees are fire, police, streets, and parks and recreation facilities.

The city has been working with consultant TischlerBise on land-use assumptions and an infrastructure improvements plan since 2019, and on Tuesday will hear public input.

The next public hearing is on a request for the abandonment of a 1,750-square-foot parcel of land between 2702 Diamond Spur St. and property directly to the north.

The applicant seeks to obtain 5 feet of the vacated property for construction of a garage.

Public hearing number three will tackle a request for a conditional use permit that would allow a mini-storage facility for boats and RVs to be located at Southern Avenue and Railroad Street.

The request comes from applicant Travin Pennington and property owner Praise Chapel International.

The final two public hearings deal with properties at 3186 Beverly Ave. and 3180 Beverley Ave. The first will seek input on a minor amendment to the city’s general plan for 2030 in changing the projected land use of the above properties from residential to community commercial. The second hearing on the properties is a request to rezone them from residential zoning to commercial, service business zoning. If approved, the property owner intents to put a billboard on the property.

Under department reports, council will review the Kingman Fire Department’s 2020 annual report, in addition to an overview of KFD’s Fire Station 5.
