There might not be enough time left for the City of Kingman to meet its objective of hiring a new Economic Development Director before the economic development focused Town Hall scheduled August 19.

City Manager John Dougherty informed council members on July 12 that the top applicant rejected the City’s employment offer. The man spent more than a week in contemplation before turning down the job.

Dougherty told Council members who would have the job opening advertised once again before the end of July.
