I wanted to post some great news. Tonight the Finance Committee and City Council voted and passed for approval the entire 42nd street project, $198,043.35. Bids are approved, and we are ready to talk and get buy in with surrounding property and business …owners. We will be breaking ground soon, and hope the weather cooperates until it is completed. I will advise as new details come to light.
I would like to take this time to also thank some folks behind the scenes who were instrumental in bringing this project to this point for us. First, I would like to thank Mayor Danny Jones and City Manager David Molgaard for their continued support of us in KC. I would also like to thank Chris Knox, City Engineer who put out the bids and followed up to get ready for this and who will supervise the project. Dave Gilmore with GAI Consultants for design and cost estimates for this project. Finally a great big thank you to our City Council folks for voting to support this project for KC.
Can’t wait to see it happen. Thanks to all.
Richard A. Burka
Councilman, Ward 18
