The City of Kingman is conducting a citizen survey to help improve city operations. In October, a survey was mailed to a random selection of 1,600 resident households.  The survey is now available online to all residents.  Log in to by Monday, December 10th to give your input!  


Pursuant to the Responsible Sales and Use Tax Act (Proposition 413) approved by the City of Kingman voters on November 6, 2018, the City of Kingman’s Model City Tax Code will be amended to reflect a 1% decrease in the transaction privilege and use tax rate among most categories effective January 1, 2019.

The Kingman Parks and Recreation Department provides residents with a wide variety of life-enriching classes, special events, trips, athletic opportunities and workshops. We strive to provide our community with safe, clean, pleasing park facilities that will meet the recreational needs of the entire community.

Calls will be placed between November 26-December 21 (no choice of calling date).
Santa is looking for volunteers to assist with calls, so if you’re interested and can help Santa, please call the North Pole Hotline at 757-7919.

The 18th Annual Kingman Polar Bear Plunge 
Tuesday, January 1st, 2019
12:00 p.m. @ Centennial Pool 3333 Harrison St., Kingman AZ

The “Plunge” is now seventeen years and counting with participation increasing each year. What started out as a fun challenge has blossomed into a full scale specialty event to begin the New Year! The “Plunge” is open to anyone interested in starting off their new year in a “chilling” way by braving the near freezing waters of Centennial Pool. Several unknown prizes await brave swimmers at the bottom of the pool. The “Plunge” is FREE for everyone. Warm showers await all dippers at the events conclusion. The “Plunge” will take place at exactly Noon on New Year’s Day, not a minute before or after the hour… The plunge is usually over within minutes so don’t be late!
Note: The brisk water temperatures may not be suitable for everyone. If you have a heart condition or history of heart related problems, the Polar Bear Plunge may not be the activity for you to participate in. If unsure that the shock of cold water may be harmful to your health you should consult your physician prior to participating. All plungers do so at their own risk.
