KINGMAN, Ariz. (AP) - Security concerns are keeping the Mohave County treasurer’s remote offices closed.

County Treasurer Cindy Landa-Cox says the opening of temporary satellite offices later this month in Bullhead City and Lake Havasu City won’t occur as planned.

The Kingman Daily Miner reports (https://bit.ly/1MsNjqP) than an attorney from the county and an independent lawyer have determined that treasurers are constitutionally obligated to accept property tax payments in cash, along with checks and credit cards.

The offices were supposed to open to people paying with check or credit card and anyone wanting to pay in cash would have to drive to Kingman.

Landa-Cox determined if cash payments must be accepted, the same level of security that exists at her Kingman office must also be present at the temporary offices.
