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.

Jalapenos could open next weekend; Sunflower Auto Plaza to open down the road

Great news for the City, not only Jalapenos, But the Used cr lot also. Thank you both for bringing the businesses to Tonganoxie, Now if something can go into the run down buildings owned by Seymour, It would really make that corner very appealing and a place the city can be proud of instead of the embarrassment we face with them empty. Thanks again to those 2 men!! Everyone stop in and thank them for making the move here! I know I plan to be on of the first to congratulate them and wish them great success!

It's over: Box's resignation ends council standoff, leaves Basehor with 2 elected officials

12345, That was my point. No City business can be conducted without a quorum and that's 3 Councilman, and with fFred resigning, nothing can be done at all, Period. You may be Correct. The Council of 3, I believe, would have to accept his resignation. Even if Mr Boxs' resignation wasn't accepted by the Majority, which would be the other 2 Councilman, Mr. Box cold jut Not show up for Council meeting. Basehor is between a rock & a Hard place. I Don't know how this can be resolved unless what I said earier, The County Commission about Councilmen.

I'm with you old vet. Fred is a war hero and all around great American. Too bad this became a fiasco. Still want to know how anything will get done without a quorum.

How will it be possible for two councilmen to choose which is going to be Mayor without having a quorum of the council. If I'm not mistaken it takes 3 councilmen to have a quorum, which they don't have. Can someone enlighten me on the subject? I would think the best way to achive fairness in this whole thing would be for the county commissioners to be given names of which to chose and pick councilmen from there. When those are chosen, then the full council can vote who's to be Mayor then the new Mayor selects a councilman to replace his position. Anyone else have any suggestions? I don't believe any business or the paying of the bills can take place without a quorum.
