City council welcomes new administrator, thanks police chief
City Administrator Mark Loughry experienced his first Basehor City Council meeting Monday night.
Loughry's first day of work was Monday, and he was welcomed by Mayor Terry Hill in front of audience members at that night's regular meeting. Hill expressed his happiness about Loughry joining the staff, and Loughry said he was equally pleased.
"I'm really glad to be here and really happy to have this opportunity," Loughry said.
Also that evening, Hill and several members of the council thanked Basehor Police Chief Lloyd Martley for all the work he did as interim city administrator. To show their appreciation, the council members unanimously approved a $3,000 bonus for Martley.
"I can't say thank you to him enough," Hill said about Martley.
