Rance –
– Will be assisting the township as needed because they helped the City out so much.
– Chip n’seal update: Jones street is completed, and it looks great. There were some issues with the sealant oil from another tanker that did not pass KDOT inspections, we were anticipating a wait on continuing the chip n’ seal project. Nolan with Douglas County informed us later today that the project will be continuing Tuesday around noon and should finish by Wednesday evening.
– Had Kevin relief cut the entrance to Clark street so it can be ripped out and repaired.

Lynley –

The auditor stated: I appreciated the recent opportunity to visit with you regarding the management and operation of the City Water Utility. It is evident that you are dedicated to the successful operation of the City.
