October, 2014 Newsletter

OctoberNLetterimageLabette County is seeking renewal of the 1% countywide sales tax in the November election. This is a renewal of the existing sales tax, not an increase. In order for the voters to make an informed decision, the City provides the following information. With this sales tax, everyone who makes purchases in the county shares in the tax burden, including people from outside the county who make purchases while passing through. The county, as well as the cities within the county, receive this tax revenue. Read More

June, 2014 - Newsletter

june 2014-1Superintendent Jurgensen plans to have some streets resurfaced and some streets will have the microsurfacing done on them. The Micro-surfacing technique only adds up to ½” whereas the regular asphalt overly adds at least 1 ½”.
Some streets will still need the asphalt overlay in order to establish a more substantial base. The street projects will be paid for with the city’s 1 cent sales tax funds. Sales tax monies for streets have been allowed to build up in order to wait until after the Water Distribution System project was completed as too many streets were going to be torn up during the project. Supt. Jurgensen said that there will be two separate street projects this year and the earliest the work will begin is in August.

They are also going to start crack sealing the streets. Where the work is done it will remain tacky for several days so to be careful walking or driving across these areas. Read more in this newsletter.


April, 2014 - Newsletter

meet the ratio. It may take several quarters for our ratio to average out when a violation occurs. The City Superintendent states that this is the case. Read more in this newsletter.
