The Kearny Town Council approved a resolution to adopt the 2014-15 fiscal year budget. The budget is set for $5,071,087. The budget has been printed and published in the June 4 and June 11 editions of the Copper Basin as per state law. The council will have their final approval of the budget in July.

During the council meeting the council appointed David Herrera to the council to fill the position of Brad Richards. They also approved the appointment of David Orzell as the town magistrate and appointed Bob Jordan as the voluntary code enforcer. Orzell has been the town magistrate since 2008. Dave Collier and Dave Alexander were also appointed as deputy magistrates.

Jordan will serve as a voluntary code enforcer with the town. His voluntary position will be covered under the town’s insurance. Through this position he hopes to help others learn more about the codes and help people learn how to follow the codes. His goal is to help Kearny look its best.

The council also voted to approve a street light services agreement with Arizona Public Service. APS is requiring all of their municipal customers to renew their agreements. These new agreements are now the same across their coverage area and while the costs are slightly higher than previous agreements the costs are shared equally across the state.
