Basehor City Council meeting postponed; rescheduled for next week

August 21, 2002

The monthly Basehor City Council meeting was postponed Monday, Aug. 19, because council members Joe Odle and Joseph Scherer were out of town on business.

With just three council members available, there wasn't enough to form a quorum four voting members must be present to conduct a meeting.

The meeting has been rescheduled for 7 p.m. Monday, Aug. 26, at City Hall.

Two main issues facing the council are whether to adopt the 1997 Uniform Fire Code and whether to grant a change in structure status for a temporary building.

The fire codes would be enforced and inspections would be handled by the Fairmount Township Fire Department. An agreement between the fire department and city is expected to be approved at the next meeting.

Also up for approval is whether to allow the temporary building housing Community National Bank to remain as a permanent structure after the bank moves to its new building.

The bank is operating under an 18-month temporary-use permit.

However, the building's owners, Dennis and Debbie Breuer, requested that the building remain as a permanent structure because extra work had been done to the facility.

Earlier this month, the Basehor Planning Commission approved a recommendation that the status of the building be changed from temporary to permanent.

Other items up for council approval are:

approve or deny contractor payments for the Falcon Lakes project.

approve or deny payments to Ponzer-Youngquist engineers for sewer design work.

approve or deny annual contractual appointments.

approve or deny all employee participation in Social Security program.

approve or deny new welcome signs to Basehor.

approve or deny allocation for funds to fill north and south lagoons.

approve or deny bid for cleaning service.

approve or deny final plat for construction plans for phase two of Prairie Gardens subdivision.

approve or deny final plat for construction of phase two of Prairie Lakes subdivision.

approve or deny final plat for construction of phase two of the Falcon Lakes subdivision.
