The Eudora City Council normally meets on the second and fourth Monday of each month. That has not been the norm in the month of March. We have been informed that once again, there will not be a quorum to hold a meeting.  Three of the five city Council members must be present to have a quorum and have it count as an official meeting.

According to City Staff there will be no special meeting scheduled, much like there was last week to discuss the Public Safety Building.

The next City Council meeting will be held on Monday, April 9th at 7:00 PM at City Hall.

The Kansas Department of Transportation will meet tonight with representatives from the cities along the K-10 corridor to discuss the possibilities of improving roadway safety on K-10. The meeting will take place at the Eudora Recreation Center at 5:00PM and is not open to the public.

The group that formed the Facebook page supporting cable barriers in the median of K-10, will hold a candlelight vigil outside the Rec Center during the meeting.  According to the Facebook page, the group wants to make sure KDOT officials are aware of the public’s support for this issue.

People who plan on attending this vigil should plan on bringing their own candles and possibly some rain gear as isolated thunderstorms are in the forecast for this evening.

Eudorareporter.com has learned that the meeting requested by Governor Brownback in his letter to KDOT officials on April 22, has been set for May 12 at the Eudora Recreation Center.

The “local group” the Governor requested will include officials from the cities of Eudora, De Soto, Overland Park, Lawrence and Lenexa.  Also scheduled to be in attendance for the meeting are officials from KDOT,  and both Douglas and Johnson Counties.

This meeting will not be open to the public.

Eudorareporter.com contacted Eudora City Administrator John Harrenstein and he stated that “We realize this is a very emotional issue and those emotions are not bad.  We need representatives to feel they are able to speak freely so that the group can come to a productive resolution.”

Harrenstein did add that, while the meeting is closed,  “In the interest of being open and transparent to the public, we are inviting a select number of media outlets to the meeting so the public can be informed about what takes place.”

Eudorareporter.com has been selected as one of the media outlets to be in attendance at this meeting and we will have a full report on the meeting.
