KINGMAN – The contract renewal for the Mohave County Medical Examiner’s Office and a Golden Valley animal sanctuary will go before the Mohave County Board of Supervisors on Monday.

The Medical Examiner’s Office is seeking an extension of the contract for County Medical Examiner Archiaus Mosley, M.D. It calls for an additional two-year extension–beginning in July through June 2020–with an annual cost increase of $30,780. Current terms and conditions will remain the same.

If approved, the $1.3 million extension fee for medical examiner services will go toward staff salaries, supplies, vehicles, a building lease, refrigeration and databases. The Mohave County Medical Examiner’s Office is currently located in Lake Havasu City.

According to County Manager Mike Hendrix, the county medical examiner office is responsible for providing medical services to determine causes of death within the county and Mosley himself will testify in court if necessary.

“We believe the increase is reasonable,” he said.

Also, on the consent agenda is consideration for the renewal of For the Luv of Paws II, Inc. Domestic Animal Rescue and Sanctuary special use permit in Golden Valley.

Founder Cherie DaLynn established the domestic animal rescue and sanctuary in 2005 to fill the need for a no-kill sanctuary for neglected, abused and abandoned domestic animals in the county.

The meeting begins at 9:30 a.m. at the Mohave County Administration building at 700 W. Beale St. in Kingman and is open to the public.
