Emporia City Commission considering new housing development and maintenance contract

The Emporia City Commission has an action session on Wednesday night.



Commissioners will consider a resolution for a proposed housing development by Rite Development, Incorporated. This development will include 36 units of two and three-bedroom apartments at 1002 Whittier Street; the estimated cost is $5.5 million.


The other approvals include a maintenance contract with the Emporia Public Library for 2017 and updates to the election ordinance.


They'll consider purchasing an ambulance by contract. According to sales manager Ned Clifton from American Response Vehicles, the discounted invoice for the 2017 AEV TraumaHawk Type 1 is listed at $254,462.


There will be two main public hearings during the meeting. These pertain to wastewater treatment plant improvements and amending the 2016 budget. The 2016 budget saw many increases to four different funds, including the wastewater fund.


Finally, there will be public comment in regards to city employees completing the Collaborate Organize and Engage program. This relates to internal training courses to provide better understandings of city of Emporia operations.


The meeting begins at 7 PM at 518 Mechanic Street.
