Administrator, council to discuss city projects

March 2, 2006

Members of the Basehor City Council and incoming City Administrator Carl Slaugh will meet in April to discuss long-term projects and goals.

At next week's council meeting, Basehor Mayor Chris Garcia will ask council members to identify dates they are available for the planning session. Governing bodies commonly schedule annual retreats as a way to discuss long-range plans and other important issues.

This will mark the third time since Garcia has been in office that the city council has participated in a retreat.

The mayor said he anticipates the retreat will cover these issues that are most pressing to Basehor: next year's budget, roads, sewers and growth management.

"And anything new that pops up between now and then," the mayor said.

The council also will review a list of items they want the new administrator to complete. Two weeks ago, the mayor asked council members to begin forming a top 10 list of items for Slaugh to tackle after he begins work March 27.

Garcia said the council members will submit their lists and a composite will be built in time for the April retreat.
