The mayor outlined briefly, discussions and ideas brought forward at a recent city council workshop, as well as ideas gathered during a recent visit to Sabetha, noting private/public partnerships, community improvements, and industrial area offerings. She suggested, and consensus was to coordinate a future Chamber of Commerce mixer with a community town hall to seek additional public input regarding potential future projects. It was noted that the Planning and Zoning Committee plans to continue meeting each month to review the city comprehensive plan.

Approval was given to bid four new trucks, to replace one each in the police, parks, water/sewer, and administrative departments. Tim Anderson was hired part-time to fill weekend patrol as a reserve police officer, and Maria Seematter and Ricci Beikman were hired as assistant city pool managers. Fourteen lifeguard, and 8 concession applications have been received.

Kansas Department of Transportation has approved a $91,000 grant, on an 80/20 match for phase two of four projects submitted that would include replacing the Broadway crossing at 7th Street and assist with connections for the Blue River Rail Trail with downtown, and a proposed trail head to be located at the Historic Union Pacific Depot.

The mayor expressed concerns that no brick would be included in the crossing, which would match Broadway surfaces, and a raised crossing designed to slow traffic. It was noted that these were KDOT specifications, not included in the initial city submission.

Mark Hoffman, speaking on behalf of the Volunteer Trails Group earlier during the meeting indicated that the connection from the current trail head north of Jayhawk Road should be completed along the east edge of the rail yards south to North Street by July 4th. Council was asked to consider options for connecting the trail south on 7th Street to the depot property at Calhoun Street. Three other phases of the grant application were denied.

Possibility of constructing a new water shop on city owned property on the corridor at Calhoun was discussed. The building would be located just east of Bruce’s Body Shop, fronting to the north. The project would require a variance of zoning regulations but would be considered an improvement to the vacant property.
