Kingman tax hike rejected by voters
KINGMAN – Kingman voters have soundly rejected a city proposed tax hike. Proposition 415, a small sales tax increase to generate revenue for a street maintenance program, was losing by a near 2-1 voting margin following Tuesday’s general election.
Election results are unofficial with additional votes to be processed and tallied, but as of early Wednesday morning, Proposition 415 was being rejected by 3,210 votes (6,747 – 3,537). The city’s considerable public information campaign failed at the ballot box, rejected by nearly 66% of the electorate.
Conversely, nearly 70% of voters approved a 25-year franchise agreement allowing UNS Gas, Inc. to continue providing service in the city.
