The council meeting was called to order in the council
meeting room by Mayor Richard Knott at 7:00 P.M. Council
members present were Randi Vanderpool, Lance DeLissa, Elaine
Post, Jim Ediger and Roger Musgrove. Also present were City
Administrator Dean Cordes and City Clerk Tiffany Neel.

First on the agenda Dale Schell asked if the council would
make a donation to the Ranch Rodeo. Musgrove made a motion
to donate $250, seconded by Vanderpool with all in favor.
Brad Ackerman asked if the council would consider donating
to the Meade Chamber Fireworks display this year. Musgrove
made a motion to donate $1,000.00, seconded by DeLissa with
all in favor.
Taylor Finke asked the council if they would sell the empty
lots between Meade County Title and the Clock Shop. Cordes
will find out the footage between the lots and contact one
other individual who is also interested in a portion of the
lots. We will discuss at the next meeting.
Post had a few questions on the police report. She asked why
there were so many public relations and vehicle fuel numbers
added into the report. She also asked if we get reimbursed
for Galla going out of town to be used for other
departments. The Mayor said we will need to talk to the
Chief when he is at the next meeting.
The Appropriation Ordinance in the amount of $294,655.65 was
approved on motion made by Musgrove, seconded by Ediger with
all in favor.
The April 25th, 2016 minutes were approved as
Ediger made a motion to approve building permit #16016,
#16017 & #16018, seconded by DeLissa with all in favor.
Cordes said he received 3 bids to replace the carpet in the
office hallway. Post asked Cordes to get a bid from
Scantlands in Liberal. Neel said she and Cordes had talked
about having the hallway painted before the carpet is
installed. Council asked Cordes to get bids for painting as
Cordes handed out changes that will need to be made to the
zoning ordinance to comply with billboard signs. The
council discussed handling the billboard signs with a
conditional use permit. The hearing for the zoning change
will be held on May 23rd, 2016 at 6:00 P.M.
Cordes addressed the house number situation at Wheatland
Estates. The apartment numbers do not match the current 911
address in the system. The county currently has them labeled
as 500 E Rainbelt. The council decided to leave the
addresses the same as the county.
Cordes received 3 bids to repaint the water tower. The
lowest bid was from Superior in the amount of $77,012. The
council asked Cordes to find out what kind of paint each
company is using before they made a decision.

motion to purchase the vacuum truck from Ditch Witch in the
amount of $56,500, seconded by Musgrove with all in favor.
Mayor asked the council to make the current appointments.

vacancies to be filled, seconded by Musgrove with all in

Vanderpool said she heard there were construction workers in
town that were going to be doing work at the airport and she
wasnít aware of any work being done. Cordes said he wasnít
either. At this time, we donít have anyone scheduled to do
any work at the airport.
Lance Kane asked if he could talk about his building. He
said he had major water leaks from the last rain. The water
is running south from the alley right into his back door. He
said Cordes has tried everything he could at this point to
try to prevent the water from running to the back of Kaneís
building. The council discussed other options. Cordes will
have Rodney Blehm get elevation levels and possibly build a
berm to divert water down the alley.
