Johnathan Petty and Renee Oyer were present to discuss starting a Narcon anonymous group and asked if they could hold meetings at the Community Building. The council discussed and the general consensus was to allow the group to hold meetings on a trial basis for 90 days. The group agrees to pay $60/month for building use. The group hopes to have their first meeting in about 3 weeks.
The council discussed the last use of the Community Building. Sharron Roberts who cleans the building noticed a scratch on the floor from the kitchen to the West door. In addition to the scratch there was an additional white mark believed to be from a table being drug across the floor. To avoid this in the future it was agreed that the City employees will set up the tables once a month for Goldenrods.
Additionally it was reported that the furnace in the Community Building has not been keeping up with temperature on the thermostat. The furnace shuts off and then won’t turn back on. Rance will look at it, and if we can’t get it functioning properly, then we will call Lower heating & air.
Paul Bahnmaier spoke to the City Council regarding the tombstones on the old quarry. They met with the Gustin’s who own the property and were able to locate the stones. They are accessible; 1 tombstone is large and will need moved in 2 pieces, the other tombstone is a smaller single stone. Probably move them with the skid-loader and packing blankets when it warms up and the ground dries out a bit.
Paul Bahnmaier also mentioned the turnpike meeting on 4/15, in Lecompton. Possible options for the K10/I-70 access include: – Do nothing – Put in an expressway – put in a tollway. Discussion about access from farmers to K10 but not I-70. I-70 would be relocated to either Queen’s road or 600 Rd. with some possible Hwy 40 improvement.
