After a pair of presentations from the Liberal Police Department and the Kansas Small Business Development Center, there are several purchases and improvements that will be looking for the approval of the Liberal City Commission during its next meeting this evening starting at 5:30.

After the Kansas Small Business Development Center presentation, city staff will be requesting Ordinance No. 4493, which concerns amending Chapter 15, Article 1, Section 15-120 of the city code regarding water utility cross connections.

“This amendment will include the definition of private wells and the prohibition of private wells within the city limits,” the agenda information noted. “This amendment is necessary for the protection of the city’s source water and any potential cross contamination.”

The commission will also be discussing Resolution No. 2232, which determines the advisability of issuing taxable industrial revenue bonds for the purpose of financing the acquisition, construction, furnishing and equipping of a hotel and conference center. This resolution will be expiring Dec. 31 and city staff will be requesting the commission extend the expiration to June 30, 2018, according to the agenda packet information. 

The police department will be on hand for a pair of other items before the commission, with the first of these being discussion of a consultation estimate with Hayden Tower along with the replacement of the air conditioning unit located on the north central part of the police department building.

“Following the joint county/city commission meeting, the Liberal/Seward County Communications Board met to discuss future plans to move forward with the radio tower communications project,” the agenda information noted. “The development of this site includes the land survey, FCC ASR, geotechnical report, environmental studies, construction drawings and identification of Native American tribal grounds. The communications board voted to accept this estimated quote from Hayden Tower not to exceed $37,500 to be taken from the 911 fund.”

There will also be a couple purchase requests from the Parks, Sports Turf, Cemetery and Street departments as well as for Liberal Municipal Airport for needed maintenance equipment. The commission will also be discussing Phase 2 of the improvements to Mahuron Park including installing a new sand volleyball court and installing two new park benches around the basketball court, among other work, according to the agenda information. 

To conclude the commission’s new business, city staff will request the commission renew the contract with Pinegar, Smith, and Associates, Inc. for its lobbyist services as a member of the Southwest Kansas Coalition.
