Petition valid; advisory question about airport planned for November
The Leavenworth County Commission plans to put an advisory question about an airport on the November ballot.
With Leavenworth County resident Irene Tork’s protest petition being deemed valid by the county clerk’s office, the commission moved forward with its next step.
The petition requested that a decision on an airport be sent to the voters.
At Thursday’s county commission meeting, the board opted to let the charter resolution regarding the airport die. If after 30 days from when the petition is verified no action is taken, the resolution dies. The board, by a 3-0 vote directed county staff to craft a specific advisory question regarding the airport for the November election.
