City of Kingman Adopts Fiscal Year 2021-22 Budget

-Capital Projects Highlighted-

KINGMAN, Ariz. – The Kingman City Council voted June 28, 2021, to adopt the Fiscal Year 2021-2022 Budget and Five-Year Capital Improvement Plan, which will become effective on July 1, 2021. This lengthy process began late last year, with City Council identifying their priorities.

“A year ago, we had to reduce budgets because of the forecasted reduction in revenues due to the economic downturn caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, but I am pleased that we will be able to improve and maintain the services our citizens and businesses depend on. We look forward to capital projects moving forward to help with growth, as our economy bounces back from the pandemic,” Kingman City Manager Ron Foggin said. “I do need to thank the Mayor and Councilmembers for their support, as well as my city team for all the time they put into developing the 2022 budget,” he added.

The budget process begins with each department creating their 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 2021-2022 fiscal year budgets as:

  • Improved City Services and Livability
  • Modernization
  • Economic Prosperity
  • Communication and Teamwork
  • Partnerships
  • Culture

Some highlighted capital projects:

  • Rancho Santa Fe Parkway Traffic Interchange
  • Downtown Streetscape
  • Sunbelt Sports Park
  • Pavement Preservation

 General Fund breakdown:

  • 57% – Police and Fire Departments
  • 16% – Parks and Recreation
  • 27% – All other departments
