Liberal City Commission Selects Jose Lara as Mayor, Jeff Parsons Vice Mayor

Joe Denoyer - January 10, 2023 7:25 pm

The Liberal City Commission met Monday evening at 5:30 pm with Reorganization before them. The Commission chose Jose Lara as Mayor and Jeff Parsons as Vice Mayor. After a brief recess, the commission tackled the agenda before them.

Commissioners adopted Ordinance 4592 which eases regulations on Food Trucks within the City of Liberal. The Ordinance basically gives food truck owners more freedom.

The Commission used ARPA Funds to purchase an attack hose and an LDH supply hose for the Fire department from Casco Industries in the amount of $11,652 and approved the bid from Elite Concrete Coatings LLC for the hallways at the Recreation Center. The total cost of the project is $48,996.60.

BASE Grant discussions were held by the Commissioners as were work session dates for water projects. Commissioners also moved the next meeting to January 23rd due to the Commissions’s desire to participate in Local Government Day in Topeka.

In an added agenda item the Commission approved up to $100,000.00 for continued repairs to the Grier House. The funds will come from the Economic Development portion of the one cent sales tax.
