Street Lights

The City of Kingman maintains street lights throughout Kingman but, there are many dusk to dawn lights maintained by Unisource Electric. Unisource lights are typically recognizable due to the wooden utility pole they are mounted on. Inoperable or malfunctioning dusk to dawn lights may be reported directly to Unisource Electric either by phone at (877) 837-4968 or online at www.uesaz.com/contact. The account number is not required but, a general description of the location and the pole number are needed. Below is a picture of a typical dusk to dawn light and the pole number.

Property and Weed Maintenance

The City Kingman Public Works, Kingman Police and Kingman Fire Departments would like to remind Residents to help keep our city clean and safe.  Wet winters coupled with the warm spring and summer temperatures bring rapid weed growth.  Below is an overview of the responsibilities of property owners within the City of Kingman. 

  •  Sec. 7-165 Public Nuisances.  Property maintenance, including the right of way and landscaped areas, is the responsibility of the abutting property owner.  This includes the area between the property line and back of curb or edge of unimproved roads, easements, and to the center of alleys around the perimeter of the property.
  •   (d).  All persons owning or occupying land, whether improved or unimproved, shall keep the sidewalks or public places fronting or bordering their property free of garbage, trash, refuse, rubbish, litter or junk, and weeds or grass in excess of six (6) inches high; provided, however, this section shall not prohibit the temporary storage of such materials in authorized receptacles for collection in compliance with the Kingman Municipal Utilities Regulations.
  •  (e).  No owner or occupant of land, whether improved or unimproved, shall allow trees, shrubs, or plant growth on that land to encroach upon or impede, obstruct or interfere with passage on any street, sidewalk or alley within the city or to obstruct visibility of any traffic control device or signal. Such clearance shall be a minimum of seven (7) feet over a sidewalk and fifteen (15) feet over the roadway. 
  • (f) No owner or occupant of land, whether improved or unimproved, shall allow plant growth which is dead, dormant or so dry as to be readily flammable or combustible or that may otherwise constitute a fire hazard or other threat to public health or safety. 
  • (g) No person shall deposit into, sweep upon or allow or permit to drain into any public right-of-way or place any hazardous material, garbage, trash, refuse, rubbish, litter or junk, or similar matter which is offensive to sight or smell or impedes passage or is detrimental to public health. 
  • Such maintenance shall include, but may not be limited to, pruning, mowing, weeding, trimming, raking, watering, refuse removal, fertilizing, and maintenance of the irrigation systems, and general clean-up of the area, to create an attractive appearance. 
  • Failure to comply with City ordinances regarding property and landscape maintenance shall be subject to a misdemeanor charge as amended by Ord. 1137 and Ord. 1179.

 Sincerely,

 City of Kingman Public Works, Kingman Police and Kingman Fire Departments.
