Claflin eyes city building repairs

POSTED: November 25, 2011 7:00 a.m.

 Members of the Claflin City Council will seek bids on repairs to the northwest corner of the city building, which is settling to the point that doors in the back will no longer close.
The issue will be discussed further at the council’s December meeting.
Council members met Nov. 14 at the city building.
In other business:
• James Wright with Midwest Energy gave a Power-point presentation and talked about issues being faced by the Hays-based power cooperative.
• Christina Hayes explained Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, a new program being made available from the United Way of Central Kansas. Once a month, the program will provide hardbound books for children, ages birth to 5, at no charge to the family.
• Council members approved a resolution extending a previous resolution by giving an additional 180 days for construction of a proposed project to place a Verizon wireless communication tower.
• Changes in the proposed lease agreement with USD 112 were discussed. City attorney Bob Suelter will take additional terms to the district for consideration.
• Richard Hayes will talk with Pete Krier about repairs needed on his properties to bring them into compliance with city ordinances. By consensus, the council decided repairs on demolition will need to be completed by Jan. 12.
• Council members approved: $535 to Protint to spray a bed liner; $485.34 for a deep tool box or $408.36 for a standard tool box and $350 for a headache rack to Bob’s Service Center.
• No action was taken following a 20-minute executive session to discuss non-elected personnel.
