County Commission approves zoning change for Evergy's local consolidation Evergy logo

Evergy's plans to consolidate its local operations has found favor with the Lyon County Commission.

The Board of Commissioners formally approved a minor plat application as well as a rezoning application for 20 acres of property at 1771 Road G. The land was originally zoned as agriculture but is now light industrial.

This step will let Evergy move all its equipment and gear from several locations in town to one spot.

Separately, commissioners approved a $19,000 payment to Lyon-Coffey Rural Electric so the company can install electricity at the Lang Substation in the 1700 block of Road 200, or about three miles northeast of Emporia. Lyon County will use the substation as part of its emergency radio network, and this is one of the early projects as the city and county invest over $4 million to renovate the system.

In other business, commissioners approved purchases of nearly $40,000 in welding equipment for the County Highway Department.
