The Mound City Council met on their new meeting night of the first Tuesday of the month on Feb. 7 and began their meeting with a request from Sue Vicory to help with sign placement that she is willing to purchase for the northern entry into town on K-7 Highway. Council agreed to add it to the agenda for discussion.

Council then approved the minutes of the January meeting followed by approval of warrant checking in the amount of $77,271.50.

Josh Baldwin spoke for absent City Clerk Shelby Murray noting she is working on grant possibilities for the city.

Police Chief Paul McKee reported he and Officer Chip More attended a meeting recently that should provide their department with some grant money for equipment in the future.

McKee added that with no city attorney and no judge it’s hard to move forward on current issues and arrests.

Jacob Bush, City Codes Officer, reported all is going well and he hopes to meet with the new city attorney soon and is still working on building codes.

Newly hired city attorney Burton Harding expressed his appreciation for the opportunity provided to him with the position.

The council set the agenda for the meeting adding the discussion on Vicory’s sign.

The council discussed the counter offer from WIHA  for access to the east side of the lake, maintaining a 100-yard distance from the shoreline and paying the city $36,360. 

The council then approved ordinance #589 officially changing the meeting times to the first Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m.

Discussion then turned to applications for city judge with the council opting to table the matter until next month before making a decision.

Council agreed to set May 26-27 for citywide garage sales. And finalized dates for other city events as follows:

Easter Egg Hunt – April 15

Fishing Derby – May 6

Jayhawk Blast – June 24

Christmas Tree Lighting – Dec. 15

Council discussed scouting possible locations for Vicory’s sign, with two suggestions made.

Council discussed pay rates for council but tabled the matter at Harding’s request so he could look into it.
