Council declines to annex 2 areas
The Basehor City Council voted against annexing the Cedar Lakes and Briarwood development Monday, but that does not mean the issue will not come up again.
With Council President Julian Espinoza acting as mayor in Joseph Scherer's place, the Council voted 5-0 against the annexation.
In order to proceed with annexation, a city needs a service delivery plan. But an agreement with the county pertaining to Sewer District No. 7 meant that changes would need to be made to the service plan before the city could proceed with annexation and the matter was voted down.
Members of the City Council also voted 4-1 to create and ordinance allocating the final costs for the U.S. Highway 24/40 quasi sewer district. Council member Iris Dysart voted against creating the ordinance.
In other action, members of the Council:
- Voted 5-0 to approve a contract $42,000 with Shafer, Kline and Warren to update the comprehensive plan for an amount not to exceed $42,000.
- Voted 5-0 to amend Article 7 of the zoning ordinance pertaining to zoning classifications. In the process, three new mixed-use classifications were created.
- Tabled action pertaining to a payment of $4,458 to Leavenworth Area Development for 2005 funding.
- And held an executive session for the purpose of discussing personnel matters and attorney-client privileged matters for 45 minutes out of the two hour meeting.
Members of the Council also scheduled a special meeting for 6 p.m. Jan. 31 to discuss information pertaining to the protest of benefit districts. Members are also expected to discuss the action they tabled Monday pertaining to the LAD payment.
