MOHAVE COUNTY, AZ (July 19, 2022) — The Mohave County Board of Supervisors approved the fiscal year 2022-2023 final budget at Monday’s (July 18) meeting. After some discussion, the supervisors approved the measure, passing a budget of approximately $561 million. The supervisors also voted for a 1.7547% tax rate, to bring about a levy of $40,331,294 to support the budget. Secondary property taxes for the Mohave County Flood Control and Library districts will receive increases of 4.28% and 4%, respectively.

It’s well known that expenses are going up globally. Future county project costs may have to be adjusted accordingly. Among the upcoming plans are a new animal shelter, currently scheduled for opening in summer, 2023; a new county morgue facility; a new sheriff’s substation; a mandated county legal services center; and continued remodeling of the courthouse in Kingman. To rein in costs, the board made the decision yesterday to cut $2.5 million planned for a new fairgrounds. It also lowered the amount of the property taxes that had been scheduled in the budget. ($1.5 million.)
