The Liberal City Commission took on a light agenda that included one item – the first reading of Ordinance No. 4427, which concerns the re-zoning of general commercial property located a mile and a half southwest of Liberal on Old Highway 54 to  sell them as single family residential lots.

The re-zoning will be for surface and surface rights only and will be in The Ranch addition of Seward County. Staff recommended the commission advance Ordinance No. 4427 to a second reading, as recommended by the Planning Commission.

The commission advanced the ordinance 4-0, with Commissioner Janet Willimon being absent from the meeting.

“We did this about a month ago but the legal description was not right,” Kory Krause, director of building services and code enforcement, explained. “So we ended up having to re-publish it and so all the legal stuff has been taken care of.”

After the ordinance was approved, City Manager Mark Hall  gave his report, during which he expressed his thanks for the weed control going on around the city after the most recent rain storms.

After his report, the commissioners gave their items, during which they all expressed appreciation for the work of the city staff.

The commission then voted to approve the vouchers totaling $855,773.88. After the vouchers discussion, the meeting was adjourned.
