The Liberal City Commission met Tuesday evening at 6:30pm for their regularly scheduled meeting. Among the items on the agenda, the City Commission awarded several employees with Employee Service Awards. Several individuals in varying departments throughout the City were awarded 10 year service awards with one employee, Daniel Zuniga of the Street Department, being recognized for 25 years of service to the City of Liberal. Also on the agenda was a presentation and update on the Dinosaur Exhibit, and the Robotics Program from Jim Bert, Director of the Mid-America Air Museum. Bert gave a power point presentation on both projects to the Commission, and informed them of the Robotics Team’s recent 1st place in a competition in Kansas City. Liberal’s Robotics teams, under the supervision of Nikki Whitaker, are the first in the state of Kansas. On hand for the presentation, was Anita Wendt of Pioneer and Southern Pioneer Electric, who made donations to both of the project, $10,000.00 to the Dinosaurs, and $5,000.00 to the Robotics. The donation in support of the Dinosaur Project will enable 1700 school children to view the exhibit, who might not otherwise had the opportunity. Commissioners also appointed Stanley Lehnert to the Liberal Memorial Library Board. The next regular meeting of the Liberal City Commission will be Wednesday Dec. 26th.
