A short agenda for the Shawnee County Commission’s meeting Monday includes two contracts and the review of a financial audit.

 

County Commissioners Bob Archer, Kevin Cook and Shelly Buhler plan to consider acknowledging those planned moves when they meet at 9 a.m. Monday in their chambers at Room B-11 of the County Courthouse, 200 S.E. 7th.

The Topeka City Council isn’t scheduled to meet this week.

The county’s finances are audited annually and Monday’s presentation by Kansas City, Missouri-based RSM will cover funds as of the end of 2016. That audit shows county’s general fund balance has increased for the sixth consecutive year.

The commission will also consider:

Increasing the cost of bridge replacement over Stinson Creek on S.E. Tecumseh Road by about $9,000. The final cost will be just under $260,000, paid using revenue from the countywide half-cent sales tax.

A $52,000 contract with Aspen Fence for the removal and construction of a fence at the Ward-Meade Botanical Garden.

Requesting applicants to fill the vacant position of Auburn Township Clerk.
