Lincolnville Council OKs revised application

Lincolnville City Council held a special meeting June 24 to approve the revised application to build the city’s new community building.

In an overview of three items on the agenda, Mayor Victor Burns asked council to consider approval of the revised application, the Community Development Block Grant disclosure report and resolution No. CB-01-04.

Councilor Dave Schneider told council the Core Committee previously reviewed the application. Changes were faxed to the grant administrator, and the revisions were recorded.

A motion by Core Committee members to accept the revised application was passed by council.

Following a discussion of the CDBG disclosure report, council approved accepting the report as presented.

Council members discussed Resolution No. CB-01-04 that the grant administrator will send to the State of Kansas for approval.

City Clerk Jane Pigorsch told council the correct amounts to be included on the resolution are $184,302 in CDBG funds and $118,471 in in-kind material and/or labor. Council approved accepting the revised resolution.

Council also discussed specific issues related to the application package.

Reviewing item No. 2 on the Public Facilities Narratives for the Kansas Small Town Environment Project, Burns said the building is also a polling location for the city of Lincolnville and Clear Creek and Clark townships.

The entire application package as revised for submission to the State of Kansas was passed unanimously by council members.
