Kingman Airport Authority Cancels Meeting
The Kingman Airport Authority has canceled its involvement in the fourth and final workshop that was scheduled with the City of Kingman this Thursday. The organization said they would only participate in private meetings that didn’t involve the public, following the last workshop. Public comment was finally allowed at the third workshop, with residents concerned about how the Kingman Airport Authority plans to make improvements. Citizens say since the airport is owned by the city, they should have a say in how it gets managed and whether or not improvements are being made. The KAA, however, says they didn’t feel the public offered anything constructive. Kingman Mayor Monica Gates says she doesn’t know what residents were complaining about. Gates said the public was angry, yet she didn’t offer any solutions to the public’s concerns. Paul Gaines, a pilot and aircraft owner whom has also had an aviation-related business at the airport for nearly 10 years and has been in his profession for 38 years, says the KAA has mismanaged the property for several years. He says the only reason the organization held the meetings was because of public pressure.
