Tonganoxie City Council votes to demolish former police station

I Have heard City workers are going to attempt to do the demolition themselves. I Do Not believe this is a wise idea at all. You have Dr. Stevens wall to save and the Council/Court chambers. This should be done if done at all by professionals who know what their doing. Just my Opinion.

KDOT says new traffic signal a go

I am So glad KDOT made the decision to place the stop light at Stone Creek & 24/40. Putting it there, I believe, will make it safer also for the Intersections to the West.by slowing the flow through those intersections. I'm glad it's finally happening.

No classes Jan. 11 in USD 464 to accommodate state debate

It is quite an honor for Tonganoxie to be hosting the State debate tournament for 4A & 3A classes. I'm so proude of our debate team who have excelled in the State as one of the best in the State. I know it's not football or Basketball, but some of these kids will grow up to be real leaders in our community, County & Yes a State level. Debate gives these kids the chance to stand above the crowd and become responsible leaders. Congratulations Tonganoxie High School!! Oh Yes, I'm Proud because I went to Tonganoxie All 12 Grades.

Tonganoxie police station renovations approved

12345 This is the building accross from the P.D. their doing the work on. They've pretty much relegated the P.D. to storage. Wanted to Claify that for you. The basement would cost so much money and from what I'm hearing there would be no guarentee the mold problems wouldn't come back.

Tonganoxie police station renovations approved

I'm commenting on the police station Renovations. This was a great plan to beef up security at the Police Station. Also, Making the decision in keeping the Station downtown, which is much more convenient for the citizens and saving taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars! I know being a Councilman or Mayor is a thankless job, But I'd Like to say a HUGE THANK YOU, for what I believe was the right decision keepimg OUR Police Department Downtown! THANK YOU!!

Minutes from May 14 city council meeting

WHEN ARE THE CITY FATHERS GOING TO REALIZE WE THE PEOPLE CAN NOT AFFORD TO SPEND THAT KIND OF MONEY. IF THEIR WILLING TO SPEND THAT KIND OF MONEY, THEN LETS GET INFASTRUCTURE OUT TO THE INDUSTRIAL PARK SOUTH OF TOWN IN ORDER TO GET NEW BIG BUISNESSES HERE TO BRING IN TAX REVENUE SO "WE THE PEOPLE" CAN AFFORD A NEW POLICE STATION. I BELIEVE WHERE THEY ARE RIGHT NOW IS SUFFICIENT. THE OLD PD CAN BE USED TO HOUSE RECORDS & EVIDENCE WHICH GIVES THE MORE ROOM ACROSS THE STREET. I'D LOVE TO HEAR OTHER IDEAS.

USD 464 bond issue talk returns

Without knowing the scope of the bond issue, I really can't say much about the Bond issue. I agree we need something done with the grade school. I would be in favor of a new school built the way in needs to be for the students, And for heaven sakes, Build it big enough to take care of students for years to come. I would love to see the old grade school made into a community center open to the public. Let the recreation commission run it and have activitys in the building. Well, I guess I did have a little to say about the situation. The last bond issue was dealing with way too much! PUT THE MONEY WHERE THE NEED IS, THE GRADE SCHOOL.

Remembering Bo

Bo will certainly be missed. Just don't make them like him anylonger. He was always wiling to lend a hand to make our city better. That guy sure could repair a screen. BO, Old Buddy, You will be Missed. My sympathy goes out to the family. A true Tonganoxie Original.
