Supervisors to discuss Wakimoto Farms lease extension today

December 4, 2018

KINGMAN — Mohave County supervisors today will discuss a one-year extension for a lease agreement with a Mohave Valley farm.

The agreement with Wakimoto Farms is for about 15 acres of farm land at $60 per acre. The extension would run from Feb. 1, 2019, to Jan. 31, 2020.

The board approved the purchase of the land in April for about $250,000. The land is within the Mohave Valley Irrigation and Drainage District.

In other action, the supervisors will select the chair and vice-chair for the board for the 2019 calendar year. District 1 Sup. Gary Watson is the current chair and District 2 Sup. Hildy Angius of Bullhead City is vice chair.

The supervisors will look to appoint Robert Cutler and John McCormick as directors of the Bullhead City Pest Abatement District for the remainder of two unexpired terms.

The board will discuss increases to the gate rates at the Mohave Valley and Cerbat landfills for the 2019 calendar year.

Also before the supervisors is a request by District 3 Sup. Buster Johnson to direct staff to bring back to the board the legal qualifications of the seven members of the Building Code Advisory Board.

The supervisors will discuss concerns about the election process and the e-poll book vendor. Johnson said there was a day-and-a-half delay in results after the November election.

The board will discuss the rezone of two parcels off Desoto Drive in Lagoon Estates east of Highway 95. The rezone of the parcels would be to highway commercial to allow for office use, outdoor display and equipment storage in the Mohave Valley area.

The supervisors will meet at 9:30 a.m. today at the county administration building, 700 W. Beale St. in Kingman.
