Sabetha City Commission: Walking trail discussion tabled until November
A large crowd of citizens were in attendance at the Sabetha City Commission meeting Monday, Oct. 23, in hopes that the commission would make a decision on the proposed walking trail. Due to Commissioner Norm Schmitt’s absence, Mayor Doug Clark tabled the discussion until the Nov. 13 meeting.
Present at the meeting were Mayor Clark, Commissioners Nick Aberle, Julie Burenheide and Maridel Wittmer, City Administrator Doug Allen, Assistant City Administrator Bill Shroyer and City Clerk Steve Compo.
Police Chief Robert Wahwasuck also was present at the meeting. Commissioner Wittmer inquired about the status of the recent vehicle break-ins. Wahwasuck said the police department has suspects “in mind,” but no one has been charged.
In other business, commissioners were agreeable to an email request from Sabetha High School government teacher Maggie Suther. Suther requested that her government students present a civic project at a commission meeting in April.
Mayor Clark reminded commissioners of the Firemen Family Appreciation dinner at The Main Event, and the SEDC Semi-Annual luncheon at Glacial Hills, both on Tuesday, Nov. 7.
Also at the meeting:
Commissioners approved Oct. 9 minutes and Wage Resolution No. 2017-16 for Paul Streeter.
The next regular meeting will be held at 6 p.m. Monday, Nov. 13, at City Hall.
