KINGMAN, Ariz. (AP) - An effort to create a code enforcement fee of $3 per ton for trash taken to the landfill failed in a 2-2 vote by the Mohave County Board of Supervisors.

The Kingman Daily Miner reports (https://bit.ly/2vnkjyv ) the proposed fee was brought before the board Monday by Development Services to fund a code enforcement program that included an attorney, two more code enforcement officers and a senior office assistant.

Two positions would have been transferred from Public Health to Development Service.

County Administrator Mike Hendrix said the hope is to make the code enforcement program self-sustaining through landfill fees.

Funding of the program would be reviewed annually along with landfill rates, evaluations and adjustments.

The county has to give people a 30-day notice to clean up their trash.
