City to consider underground utility regulation
At its meeting next Tuesday, the Tonganoxie Planning Commission will consider a proposed regulation that would require placement of underground utilities in new subdivisions.
"The concern is aesthetics," said Linda Zacher, Tonganoxie city planner.
Zacher said that Eagle Valley subdivision in south Tonganoxie was not required to use underground utilities.
"We learned a lot on that, but we do not want to make that mistake again," she said.
Both South Park and Stone Creek subdivisions are employing underground utilities, Zacher said.
