KINGMAN – The Kingman City Council voted June 21, to adopt the Fiscal Year 2022-2023 Budget and Five-year Capital Improvements Plan, which will begin its implementation July 1. This lengthy process began late last year, with the Kingman City Council identifying their priorities, and reviewing feedback from a citizen survey that was mailed out to residents late last year. Links to the budget document will be posted on the city’s website at the end of the month.
“Our city is growing, and we put together a budget that reflects providing excellent customer service and city services that benefits our community now and into the future,” Kingman City Manager Ron Foggin said. “I thank the Mayor and Council members for their support, as well as my city team for all the time they put into developing the 2023 budget,” he added.
The budget process begins with each department creating their capital and operating budget and submitting them to the city Finance Department for their review. Finance then makes necessary revisions and submits to City Manager Ron Foggin. After the initial submission of the budget, the city manager meets with department heads individually, and then submits a recommended budget to the City Council. The City Council then reviews the submitted budget, and is able to offer revisions, then adopts the final budget.
The City Council continues its priorities for the 2022-2023 fiscal year budgets as:
- Improved City Services and Livability
- Economic Prosperity
- Communication and Teamwork
Some highlighted capital projects:
- Rancho Santa Fe Parkway Traffic Interchange
- Downtown Streetscape Design
- Pavement Preservation
- Electric Vehicle Experience
