State attorney general’s office declares Kingman Council’s interchange tax increase in violation

By Hubble Ray Smith | Daily Miner

The Arizona Attorney General’s Office has found the City Council to be in violation of the state’s open meeting law when it voted for the 0.5 percent sales on Aug. 15.

The AG had received a complaint on Nov 7 that adequate notice was not provided for the discussion and vote that took place regarding potential increases to the city’s Transaction Privilege Tax, or sales tax.

The complaint specifically alleged that the tax increase was for “pavement preservation,” yet the discussion and vote led to a rate increase not only for pavement preservation, but also for “capital improvement projects.”
