Kingman City Manager John Dougherty is unhappy with the performance of Levi Pitts as Manager of the Kingman Cerbat Cliffs golf course. Dougherty told city council members during their April 18th meeting that Pitts has failed to improve operations.

“He was directed to increase the revenues and bring more professional management to the golf course,” Dougherty said. In the year and a half (since then), the revenues continue to decrease and there has been no discernible benefit of better management of the golf course.”

Dougherty said legal counsel has indicated that the city can exercise an “out-clause” to exit the contractual arrangement. He said the 180 days notice that is required would provide time to scout for a new operator.

“It’s time to find somebody new to run it,” Dougherty said.

Council members tabled Dougherty’s recommendation, saying they wanted more information before considering the matter. Pitts did not attend the meeting and did not respond to requests for comment.
