The public is invited to a reception at 6pm Monday evening, July 25, for newly appointed city administrator Bill Pfeilsticker. The reception will be held in the council chambers until 6:30pm at which time, the council work session will begin. Lisa Nolder, PCDI executive director, will brief the council on the latest business issues from the Prowers County Development Incorporated office. Her presentation will be followed by a brief meeting at 6:50pm of the Lamar Redevelopment Authority Board. The Authority Board will consider approving a resolution executing an intergovernmental agreement between the Board and the Prowers County Hospital District. If approved, the Board agrees to pay the District a portion of the Tax Incremental Funding revenue equal to 100% of the net increase in property tax revenues received by the Board from the Hospital’s levy on taxable property in the Urban Renewal Area.
Two public hearings are scheduled by the city council for Monday night. The Buzzard’s Roost in Lamar is applying for a temporary modification of the Roost at 101 North Main Street. The application will allow an annual music festival be held on September 17 and 18. The ‘Road Jam’ performance is held outdoors, and the application allows the music festival to be performed in a special area, adjacent to the Buzzard’s Roost. The second public hearing will consider a special events permit from the Fraternal Order of Eagles #3898 in Lamar. A fish fry has been planned at the Eagles for August 6 from 9am to midnight and will be open to the pubic.
The council will consider an annual agreement between the city and Lamar High School for law enforcement and security patrols for after hours events through the year. The council is expected to approve a lease agreement for a copy machine from the Xerox Company. The agenda includes an annual intergovernmental agreement with the town of Holly for the services of the Chief Building Official to perform tasks for the town. The city administrator will discuss the best time to schedule a joint meeting between the council and the Prowers County Commissioners regarding various issues in common, as well as an update on the Multi-Modal Transportation System slated to be built on city property at the Lamar Chamber offices on East Beech Street and incorporating a portion of the Enchanted Forest, also owned by the city.
