Hearing Dec. 13 for ‘quasi’ district
The Basehor City Council will hold a public hearing Dec. 13 to consider allocations for the final cost of a "quasi" sewer benefit district for the U.S. Highway 24/40 interceptor project.
In recent months, the council has searched for a solution to a dilemma faced by the interceptor project. City officials say a benefit district for the project was never created; and now that the project is nearing completion, they are scrambling to find a way to recoup funds spent on the interceptor line.
Basehor city administrator David Fuqua said the Council will review aspects of a proposal that's "not exactly a benefit district as everyone thinks of one" but has similar characteristics.
The interceptor line is a long-planned project that would connect areas east, west and south of the city to a sewer line feeding into the Basehor Wastewater Treatment Facility.
The public meeting is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m.
The agenda includes:
- Renewal of cereal malt beverage and liquor license for Casey's General Store, Simple Simon's Pizza, Kelley's Bar and Grille and Shorty's Liquor.
- Renewal of contract services with Leavenworth County for 2005 court services.
- Wage plan for 2005.
- Final plat for phase 1 of Wolf Creek Junction, the area formerly titled Basehor Plaza.
- Contract renewal with Deffenbaugh for waste disposal.
- Authorize public works department to provide labor and equipment to create a new driveway at Basehor Elementary School in an effort to reduce traffic on Leavenworth Road.
- Change orders for Pinehurst.
- Accept completion certificate from Kings Construction; commence maintenance bond.
- Request for contractor payment from state revolving loan for administration of work.
- Discontinuation of grinder pump at 15544 State Avenue.
- Amendment to solid waste ordinance increasing monthly service fee.
- Consider contract with Shaffer, Kline and Warren to update the comprehensive plan.
