More discussion on Lyon County's potential role in the Flint Hills Economic Development District is coming Wednesday.
County commissioners have been discussing the potential benefits of such a move for several months, having periodic discussions during regular meetings and also during the latest joint session with Emporia city commissioners a few weeks ago.
Economic Development District officials say joining would provide more economic opportunities on a regional scale for the county.
In other business, commissioners are set to discuss a possible purchase of an emergency restraint chair and computers for the Lyon County Jail. County Engineer Chip Woods will present a department policy handbook change for removing vehicles during snow emergencies. Project updates from BG Consultants are also scheduled.
The meeting starts at 8 am Wednesday in the County Courthouse. Because of Thanksgiving, county commissioners have adjusted their meeting schedule to have an action session Wednesday instead of the normal Thursday.
