A users association and other critics for months have been calling for major reform in the manner that the Kingman Airport and Industrial Park are managed. They’ve encouraged the City Council to join the crusade to revamp the Kingman Airport Authority (KAA).
The Council, however, doesn’t appear much interested in the “blow it up and start over” movement.
After previously asking staff to review the lease that spells out governance of the airport and industrial park asset, the Council spent 50 minutes in executive session during its May 17 meeting. The Council emerged from that private discussion offering a statement read by member Jen Miles.
“The City Council will work the with the Airport Authority governing board to advance our common goal of creating improved economic conditions for our region,” Miles said. There was no further discussion of the matter.
