Condemnation proceeds

November 4, 2004

The Basehor City Council will decide Monday night whether to proceed with plans to condemn a house and outbuildings the city claims is dilapidated and presents a safety hazard.

In August, the City Council approved condemning buildings located at 3036 N. 156th St., owned by area man Bob Eberth. However, the city reserved the right to rescind the approved condemnation if Eberth has made progress to restore the buildings within 90 days.

During the August hearing, Eberth said he would make some repairs to the buildings on his property, most notably fixing the windows and painting the house.

Also on the city's meeting agenda Monday night is an action item deciding on an incentive package for a technology company considering Basehor as a destination. The company, Able, Inc., employees approximately 20 people.

In other action, the City Council is scheduled to vote on:

  • Proceeding with the allocation of final construction costs for the U.S. Highway 24/40 sewer interceptor phases 1 and 2.
  • Appointment of a representative for a countywide one-cent sales tax committee.

According to the agenda published at left, the meeting is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. After the meeting, the Council plans a work session where the governing body will discuss traffic lights on Kansas Highway 7.
