Emporia, Lyon County commissioners to be busy Wednesday

Wednesday figures to be a long day for Emporia city and Lyon County commissioners, with separate study meetings and a joint meeting all taking place.

City commissioners will start their meeting with an hour-long executive session before jumping into hour-long discussions on the David Traylor Zoo master plan and the Far West water and sewer project. Commissioners also have discussions planned for so-called "water-break" street repairs and quarterly appropriations.

The meeting begins at 9 am at White Auditorium City Conference Room 1 AB.

Meanwhile, Lyon County commissioners will have a public hearing at 10 am, hoping to gain input on how county residents feel about pursuing an Americans with Disabilities Act grant to improve the Fairgrounds Anderson Building. They will also discuss a fiscal 2014 grant worth $50,000 for Community Corrections.

Separately, commissioners will discuss a public transportation survey relating to Emporia State students as well as a review of last month's Project Clean Sweep.

The county meeting starts at 8 am in the Lyon County Courthouse.

The agenda for the city-county joint meeting is pending, but the meeting will start at noon in the County Courthouse Jury Assembly Room.
