Supervisors add 1.6 miles of Kingman Airport & Industrial Park roads to Mohave County maintenance program


MOHAVE COUNTY – The Mohave County Board of Supervisors on Monday agreed in a 4-1 vote to accept 1.6 miles of roads at the Kingman Airport and Industrial Park for inclusion in the county’s maintenance network.


Public Works Director Steve Latoski advised that the roads are constructed to county standards and will require about $72,000 worth of maintenance effort in the near future.

“You only get one chance to make a first impression,” Watson said. “I know when you're selling properties for investment for companies looking to relocate here, it’s very important for the first impression to be one that's inviting.” Supervisor Buster Johnson voted against the measure.

Watson, Angius Retain Leadership Roles

Supervisors Gary Watson and Hildy Angius will continue serving as board chairman and vice chairwoman for the next calendar year.

The traditional annual rotation would have promoted Angius to chairwoman and Supervisor Buster Johnson to vice chairman.

Angius, however, suggested that they should remain in their leadership positions to maintain continuity as the county continues battling water issues and other important matters into the new year.

Johnson abstained from the 4-0 vote keeping leadership as is during Monday’s board meeting.

Other matters addressed during the meeting include:

16 arrested in illegal dumping operation

Sheriff Doug Schuster recapped a six week-litter detail held earlier this year. Schuster told supervisors personnel from his department documented 233 illegal dump sites and made 16 arrests.

Angius hopes to raise funds for Bullhead treatment facility

Angius said buildings along the Bullhead Parkway near Fox Creek are being donated for future use as a treatment facility for patients with substance abuse issues. Angius said she is spearheading a campaign to raise $620,000 to convert the facility into a detox center.
