The Liberal City Commission met on Tuesday evening at 6:30 pm in the Blue Bonnet Community Building. After the approval of the Consent Agenda, the Commission went into a Ten (10) Minute Executive Session Per K.S.A. 75-4319 (b)(2) for Consultation with an Attorney for the Public Body or Agency Which Would be Deemed Privileged in the Attorney-Client Relationship.
The Commission moved to the next meeting Ordinance 4585 which would grant a special use permit for the erection of a 150′ cellular tower located in the NW corner of the Liberal Country Club. This was tabled and moved to the next meeting due to a problem with some of the notification letters. Currently, the property is zoned R-3 Residential, but the tower is now being considered if the special use permit is allowed by the Commission. The Special Use permit was previously approved by the Liberal Metropolitan Area Board of Zoning Appeals.
The Commission approved Resolution No. 2386 which is the submittal of a Heritage Trust Fund Grant for up to $100,000 for renovation, preservation, and rehabilitation of historical properties. The grant requires at least a 20% match and assurance was given that the City has matching funds and that the funds were set aside at the time of the application.
Also approved was a Title VI (nondiscrimination) Policy which is required by both State and Federal governments to assure nondiscrimination policies are followed and that complainants have guidelines to file complaints of discrimination. Liberal City Bus has also updated Title VI as per KDOT regulations and was given approval by the Liberal City Commission.
City Commissioners also approved the bid for the sprinkler system at the Liberal Recreation Center with the bid going to Pryor in the amount of $195,910.00. The work should begin after the first of the year.
