The Linn Valley City Council met Monday and heard from City Clerk Karen Siffring concerning meeting dates. She said the Kansas League of Municipalities (KLM) said governing bodies can’t cancel meetings prior to the meeting date, as in the case of a lack of a quorum; she said the body needs to meet and cancel at that time.

With that, the council approved her future meeting schedule showing no meeting on the last Monday of November or December due to holidays.

Councilwoman Brenda Muncy mentioned reading the story in the Linn County News concerning La Cygne’s increase in insurance costs from Truly Insurance of $2,000; she questioned why Linn Valley had an $8,000 increase. Siffring said she has a meeting set up with Truly Insurance to discuss what is going on.

Police Chief Corey Murrison discussed disposing of a police car by sealed bid.

Murrison also volunteered his department to do codes enforcement until the city can hire someone for that position. Murrison said his officers will do codes enforcement while they are on duty with unanimous approval of the council.

Mayor Cindy Smith said that there is a difference of opinion with the Property Owners Association (POA) concerning camping lots and explained that the city is not an extension of the POA. She said the ordinance overseeing camping lots is not aligned with the city and they don’t want a “campground mentality.” She said the ordinance in question is a camping question and not enforceable by the POA or city.

The council approved the audit cost of $4,995; last year it cost $4,880.

The annual dog clinic is in April with the date and time to be announced.

Siffring was approved to attend a KLM Grant Research Writing clinic in Lawrence, Kan. with a cost of $115.
