Sabetha City Commission: City discusses upcoming projects
The Sabetha City Commission met at 6 p.m. Monday, April 23. Present were Mayor Doug Clark, Commissioners Nick Aberle, Maridel Wittmer and Julie Burenheide, City Administrator Doug Allen, Assistant City Administrator Bill Shroyer and City Clerk Steve Compo. Commissioner Norm Schmitt was absent.
Commissioners discussed city projects, including the wellness center and the Sixth Street Improvements/Walking Trail. Both projects are still in the planning phase.
City Administrator Allen said he expects that it will be mid-May before the design plans for the wellness center are put to cost estimates.
It is expected that the design of Sixth Street improvements will be ready by the first part of summer. After bidding the project out, Allen said if everything goes as planned, construction could begin around August. The Walking Trail construction could begin in late fall or spring 2019.
Also discussed was the progress of the new subdivision — Prairie View Heights — on Oregon Street. Allen said it is coming along and most city parts of the project are complete.
