Lansing Adds New Trash Hotline 364-6869 By Ken Miller, Public Information Officer Itâ€™s no secret that trash and recycling collection is an important part of the City service menu. When this service doesnâ€™t function as scheduled, Lansing residents let us know about it. Most, if not all residents know that Lansing uses a contractor, Waste Management, for trash and recycling disposal services. Folks also know Lansingâ€™s collection day is usually Thursdayâ€Ś USUALLY. But sometimes holidays, equipment failure, and other unforeseen circumstances wreak havoc on the schedule. While the City uses social media, email and news releases to get that information out (when WE know about it in advance), sometimes we donâ€™t get word until trash service is already delayed. In response, several staff members came up with
PRESORTED STANDARD US POSTAGE PAID Permit No. 28 Leavenworth, KS 66048
By Mayor Mike Smith As we slog through the dog days of summer, I want to point out the hard
the idea of a â€œtrash service hotline.â€? The local phone number is 364-6869 and features a pre-recorded message with the latest information about upcoming holiday impacts to trash collection, or if equipment
work our staff and contractors are doing in Lansing this year. The work on Desoto Rd. comes to mind first, as we see asphalt being put down after the roadway expansion between Ida St. and Holiday Dr. Linaweaver Construction, their subcontractors and Lansingâ€™s interim Public Works Director, Yomi Alli, deserve special recognition.
There are other projects as well â€“ at the time of this writing, we are just about ready to start the 4H Rd. milling and resurfacing. We wanted to get this done before school starts â€“ I can only imagine how disruptive this project would be if we also had school buses and student drivers navigating the area. I would be remiss if I didnâ€™t mention our sanitary sewer work as well â€“
failure delays pick-up, or (as is the case right now) hot summer weather means crews start their routes earlier. â€œItâ€™s another way we can keep our residents informed about changes to the trash collection schedule,â€? says City Administrator Tim Vandall. â€œOn days when there is a change, particularly if it isnâ€™t announced in advance, staff members find themselves on the phone a lot. This added information source will hopefully continue to get word out faster and more efficiently.â€? On occasion, trash and/or recycling trucks will miss a home or two. It is important in those cases, says Vandall, to call City Hall at 727-2487 and let staff know so we can track it and let the contractor know. â€œWe all want this to work as seamlessly as possible,â€? says Vandall.
improvements that must be made so Lansing can expand in the future, both residentially and commercially. These are some of the projects undertaken in 2019 â€“ and it is important to note that all these projects are part of your Cityâ€™s

Mayor Mike Smith improvement program which required NO INCREASE in the City mill levy (property tax) rate. Our staff and City Council should be proud of this accomplishment. In other, somewhat related news, late summer usually means itâ€™s the start of election season. While 2019 might be considered an â€œoffâ€? year because there are no significant Federal elections, there are some very important local elections. I urge all Lansing residents who are eligible to do so to REGISTER if you havenâ€™t already and VOTE when the time comes. And before doing that, please do your research. You will be electing people who have a large say in how our City, and our school dis
trict, face the future. For those of you who have questions about voter registration, you can contact the Leavenworth County Clerkâ€™s office at 913-684-0421. You can also email me anytime you have a question or comment. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.

Tim Vandall I must admit, I am a bit of a nerd (my wife will attest). I enjoy paying my bills and balancing my checkbook at home. It is like a puzzle, paying bills, putting certain funds in one place, while planning for home improvements, vacations, and retirement, all within the confines of your budget and trying to retain financial responsibility (I am a big Dave Ramsey fan!). The City is also working on our budget this summer. Like our residents, we are forecasting how we can pay our day to day bills, long
term debt, while making improvements to the City we love in a fiscally responsible way. The City Council has held three budget work sessions, with the most recent being July 11th. I am pleased to say the City Council will again keep our property tax rate flat for the upcoming year. The governing body in Lansing understands that our funds come from our citizens, and they all work incredibly hard to maintain fiscal responsibility to our residents. One of the largest expenses we face every year is debt service. Much of our debt comes from our recent wastewater projects. When Lansing was a smaller community, many of the sewer lines installed were undersized. Fast forward to today; Lansing is now 12,000 people and has grown 126% in the last forty years, which means we’ve been playing catch-up on our wastewater
infrastructure the last several years. We have another wastewater project in western Lansing that is slated to begin in early August. In addition to servicing 105 new homes, this project will also divert flow from the Maples and Willows subdivisions away from the undersized sewer lines on Woodland and Highland and into a newer line, essentially freeing up capacity in our established neighborhoods and reducing the likelihood of sewer backups. This project was able to be funded without any utility rate increases. DeSoto Road is also at the forefront of everyone’s mind. The contractor has started the base layer of asphalt, which is a sign of the great progress the contractor has made. We know how challenging the detours have been for our citizens, and we appreciate everyone’s patience. Believe me, when the
road is completed, it will be a vast improvement from a safety and traffic flow perspective. On a positive note, the County did a terrific job improving 155th Street. This could be an option for folks looking for a north/south alternative to K7. However, if you utilize 155th Street, please be respectful of the citizens who live in that area and abide by the speed limit. We appreciate everyone’s patience this summer as we deal with the delays caused by road construction. Another big picture project we are working on is our Parks Master Plan. We regularly receive feedback from residents about how we can improve Lansing’s park system. It is important to the City to continue improving Bernard Park and the other parks throughout Lansing; however, we also wanted to ensure our improvements are targeted and feasible. Our master plan will serve
as a road map for the upgrades we will make to our parks and recreation facilities over the next several years. The City just conducted a survey to hear from our citizens on how we can best improve our parks and recreation facilities. I love working in municipal government because the things we work on have a real-life impact on our friends and neighbors. We strive to be open, accessible, and transparent, so if you see me around and are curious about DeSoto Road, the latest economic development rumor, or improvements to our park system, let me know! I’d love to hear from you. Tim Vandall City Administrator email@example.com
Lansing Wastewater Projects Update By Anthony Zell, Wastewater Utility Director
Turn Around, Don’t Play, Don’t Drown Heavy rains and wet soils have resulted in flash flooding in the city of Lansing in years past. When you encounter a flooded area, the general rule is Turn Around, Don’t Drown. As a result of the sheer number of lives lost to flooding, the National Weather Service developed a nationwide campaign to improve driver education on the hazards of attempting to cross flooded roadways and bridges. The city of Lansing is asking all residents, and especially parents, to extend that education initiative to the safety of children and teens in regard to floodwater. It only takes six (6) inches of fast-moving water to sweep away
an adult . . . less for a child. Two feet of water will carry away most vehicles - including SUVs and trucks. The novelty of floods and flash floods sometimes attracts young people (and adults) and sometimes results in risky behaviors. During and after flood events, we often see images in the media of children playing in floodwater - swimming, riding boogie boards, riding through and jumping into floodwater. These activities are extremely dangerous and children have died due to playing in floodwater. More lives are lost each year due to flooding than any other weather-related hazard.
In some areas, such as storm water basins, large volumes of fast flowing water can come and go very quickly, sucking in or trapping anyone who gets close to drains, pipes, or grates. These places are dangerous to play near when flooding. They can be slippery, have strong suction and currents, and can be very hard or impossible to get out of. It is important to educate young and old alike about these dangers. Floodwater can also contain things like rubbish, dead animals, sewage, and other contaminants, such as poisons. It is definitely not a place to play during or after a flood.
August is here and so is the heat and humidity. Along with the summer heat, August marks the start of the Northwest Relief Sewer Project and the Golf Course Sewer Extension Project. The $2.1 million project will be constructed by Linaweaver Construction, Inc., of Lansing. Funding for the projects came from a bond issue, to be repaid by the utility’s user fees. Construction will begin at the east end of Emile St. and work west towards Main St. near The Groggery. The pipe will then be bored under Main St. and will continue along the southern property line of the golf course. At the southwest corner of the golf course the project splits to the north and south and additional lines will be placed. The southern line will extend south to Holiday Dr. As the project nears the clubhouse at GreatLife Golf, it will extend west through Twin Oaks and Fairway Estates, ultimately ending at the cul-de-sac on Merion St. These projects will be extremely beneficial to current customers and position Lansing for future growth. The projects will reroute some existing flows from overloaded pipes, which we feel will reduce the chances of backups into homes and businesses throughout the City. I want to thank all the property owners and residents for their patience and understanding during these projects. If you haven’t been directly notified by the City, your property will not be directly affected. All necessary temporary and permanent easements have been acquired. More information can be found at www.lansingks.org or by contacting Anthony Zell, Wastewater Utility Director, at 913-727-2206 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
WARD NEWS - CHECK OUT WHAT YOUR COUNCILMEMBERS HAVE TO SAY...
I am wondering: where did the rain go? It certainly brought to the surface a lot of problems lurking just
below for many of us. I am sitting here also wondering about my daughter’s new adventure. Recently, she left town for an internship. The weather is going to be hot at her destination and so we are reminding her: drink lots of water, take your sunscreen, wear a hat, don’t let the gas tank get below one quarter of a tank, etc. I have been assured that the dad in me is showing. Guilty as charged. Then I remember she has successfully completed her first year away at college. She was academically prepared (thank you USD 469.) She received academic honors, worked part time, and found time to participate in a Community Choir as well as several plays. In other
words, she gained valuable lifetime experiences. She learned how to manage her time, take advantage of the resources available to her, prioritize the things she wanted and needed to accomplish. Maybe most importantly, she continued to ask for help and advice when needed. Compromise also came into the picture. Trading work schedules, getting along with roommates (who gets the bathroom when, is the room too dark or not dark enough,) etc. She is learning that you don’t always get what you want, but there is room in the middle somewhere. She is learning more about life and how it should operate. These are valuable lessons which will take her as
far as she wishes to go. She has also learned that you can’t always believe everything she hears. She is now better equipped to seek the truth for herself, research, investigate and go the extra mile. These are lessons that will serve us all well. We should take advantage of those with experience, learn from those who have “been there, done that.” Compromise is essential, needed at times to meet the needs of others. We can’t always get what we want but there is room in the middle somewhere. Often when preparing for a meeting, I read the material available to me and if I have questions, I go where I need to get the best answers. Then we debate the issues
and sometimes after hearing other opinions, ideas, options, I may change my mind. That is how I operate when making decisions for you, my neighbors, my friends. I am always aware of the fact that my obligation is to you, the citizens of Lansing. Although a final vote has not taken place as of this writing, I do not anticipate an increase to the mill levy. There seems to be a consensus on the City Council to leave it as is. Yes, Burger King has finally reopened. The Leavenworth County Co-Op is making progress on their new facility with Quik Trip to follow. Desoto Road is moving along and I know it continues to be a pain. The
It appears summer is finally here. Heat and humidity are a mainstay of Kansas summers. So are government budget discussions. It’s a tossup which one is more painful, though the heat will unfortunately last longer. I thought I’d try to explain our property tax and budget system. Here goes: In Kansas, the county appraisers are responsible for establishing the value of real property. Every March, property owners get a Valuation Notice for their property. Owners have 30 days to file an appeal with the county if they feel the valuation is unfair. (FYI, I have
done this in the past several times with varying levels of success.) This document is important as it is the one you will receive later in the year: 2019 Real Estate Tax Statement. Most people don’t take the time to look at either, but I believe it is important to understand these two statements and the differences. As consumers of public services, we should know where our money is going! On the valuation document, it will have the estimate of market value and the assessed value for the current year and the prior year. Let’s say you have a property valued at
$100,000. The assessed value, the amount your tax bill will be based on, is $11,500. In Kansas, we are taxed on 11.5% of the market value of a property for residential real estate. Commercial is taxed at 25% of the market value, so a commercial property worth $100,000 would have an assessed valuation of $25,000. Again, that value is determined by the County Appraiser. Later this fall, you will get the tax statement or bill. It will have the assessed value from earlier in the year at the top followed by how much you owe. It will also include your property information
such as your legal description and other identifying numbers. Farther down on the page, it lists the mill levies for current and prior years and the tax amounts for each taxing district. The final block lists what each “district” or taxing entity, stands to collect in the current year compared to the prior year. In Lansing, we have three school taxing categories or “districts,” then there’s the state, the county, the city and the fire district. So that is seven total tax levies, with three under the schools. In some parts of the county, there were huge jumps in valuation. While we had an
increase this year, it was minimal compared to other areas. The good thing is that it was an increase which will allow for us to budget for increases in salaries, insurance, asphalt, etc., without having to adjust the mill levy upward. I am still hoping for a small decrease in the City’s property tax rate, but that hasn’t come to a vote as of this writing. School is just around the corner; can you believe it? Stay safe! As always, if you have any questions, comments or concerns, call me at 913-683-0662 or send me an email at email@example.com.
Happy Summer! Seems like just yesterday we were
in the dead of winter wishing for warmer weather. It looks like we got our wish. The heat is here and it looks like we are going to have a really steamy summer. I just hope the weather doesn’t stop you from getting out and enjoying the many parks we have here in Lansing. Bernard Park is a great place for a walk/hike and don’t forget you can also go fishing at the onsite pond. We recently renovated Highland Park, which is located at the Highland and Valley Drive intersection with some new equipment for the kids. Please take some time to stop by and check it out. Despite the rainy spring
we had, several local construction projects are on schedule. A representative from Lineaweaver Construction came to a recent meeting and gave the Council an update on Desoto Road. During the rains, they were able to work on culverts and dirt movement to keep the project moving forward. You may have also noticed the construction on Bittersweet bridge between Ida and West Mary Streets. This will be completed by the time school starts so it will not create any problems for the school traffic. The Council is also working with local developers on some new housing projects.
Fairway Estates will be expanding and adding several new homes on the south end, tying it in with Woodland Hills. You may also be wondering what is going on at the old Lost 80 Park on E. Mary Street. Lineaweaver Construction is putting in a subdivision named Saddle Ridge Estates which will offer some midrange-priced homes. The Council continues to work on bringing new homes to our community. We recently approved plans for Co-Op to move to the Lansing Industrial Park on E. Gilman Road. This is a very important step in the move to bring Quik Trip to Lansing. Once the Co-Op is
moved, the construction project should move quickly. A Quik Trip representative was at a recent Council meeting and they are very excited to be adding a location in Lansing. If you haven’t had a chance to check out the Lansing, KS app on your smart phone, it is a great tool to have. It has a City Directory, a Business Directory, a calendar which lets you know when meetings are scheduled and lots of other helpful information about the city of Lansing. The Kansas Open Meetings Act requires that all meetings and agendas be posted to allow citizens to see what is
We sincerely hope that everyone is having a safe and enjoyable summer so far. Hope you had the chance to make it to Lansing DAZE and the fireworks at Bernard Park – both were great events, even though the rain caused the location change for Lansing DAZE. If you couldn’t make it this year, hopefully you’ll be able to attend one or both of next year’s events. Be on the lookout for announcements for the City’s Fall Festival on October 12. For the Council, summer is one of our busiest times of the year…as it is” annual budget” time. We are aware
of the increases levied by other taxing entities over the past few years, so we are continuing to hold the line on your property taxes. Feel free to contact us with any questions or input you may have concerning the budget – your input is always helpful and welcome. We all may have different views when it comes to priorities for our City, but we are your representatives and would certainly like to hear what your priorities are as residents of Ward 4. Before we know it, summer will draw to an end and our schools will begin ramping up, so please be aware of
the children walking to school or waiting at the bus stops. The City continues to put an emphasis on getting our curbs and sidewalks repaired to help ensure the safety of those children walking to school, and we have included in our plans the construction of sidewalks in neighborhoods that currently do not have them. So if you see a needed repair posing a safety issue, please let one of us know so we can bring that up with the Public Works Director. As a reminder, our regular City Council meetings are held the first and third Thursday of every month and those
meetings along with any scheduled working sessions are open to the public. Any resident can attend the Council meetings, so if you are interested in sharing your opinion in person, please consider attending one. If you are too busy to attend in person, then please just send one of us an email or give us a call and voice your opinion on the budget or whatever else is on your mind. Also, if there is something on the upcoming agenda that you feel strongly about or if you are bringing something up for a decision at a Council meeting, please let us know prior to that meeting so we are aware of it. We cer-
tainly welcome any input you have either way, but we would much rather you call before an issue is voted on, so we can make a more informed decision on your behalf. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact myself or Gregg Buehler at: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. As a reminder, the City’s Public Information Officer sends out a weekly “eBlast” via email, and the City also has a Twitter feed, Facebook pages and NextDoor app. These are all great ways to stay informed. If you are interested, you can email PIO Ken Miller at kmiller@lans-

work on 4H road will hopefully be done by the time you read this. Bittersweet Bridge work is complete. There are lots of things happening at the Parks and Recreation Department and at the Lansing Community Library. Check it all out. Those City departments might have something going on which interests you or a family member. Remember - just because you saw it on social media does not make it true. Does it sound too good to be true? Does it sound wrong? Well, that just may be the case. Do some digging; get the facts from a reliable source. I end with this quote: “Dwell on the beauty of life.

Political Sign Regulations Political yard signs will soon be all over Lansing and the surrounding area as election season nears. Some signs are placed contrary to local regulations, however, and with elections coming up soon, city staff asks candidates to watch carefully where they place their outdoor signage. Most candidates are usually cooperative in relocating their signs. However, there are times when compliance is difficult to achieve. The following is a guideline for candidates and supporters: 1. Political Signs: Political campaign signs, not exceeding eight (8) square feet in area in residential districts and sixteen (16)
square feet in commercial districts, may be displayed no more than 45 days (Sept. 20, 2019) prior to, and seven (7) days following, an election. 2. Oversized Signs: Signs larger than the permissible size must obtain a sign permit (no fee charged) in order for City staff to track locations of larger signs. 3. Private Property: No sign shall be placed on any private property without the consent of the owner of the property. 4. Prohibitions: While signs are now temporarily allowed in the Road RightOf-Way, they are not allowed in areas where they block motoristsâ€™ line of sight â€“
near intersections, for example. Signs found in these areas will be picked up and retained for a period of five (5) working days, then disposed of. According to the sign ordinance, political signs are banned from being attached to traffic signs or devices, trees, stones, fence posts and utility poles. Staff is contacted constantly by representatives of all parties involved in the election process concerning the placement of these signs, with staff spending considerable time removing and/or contacting each representative to clarify the requirements and obtain compliance
while not impeding the political process. When a sign is placed in a non-conforming location, the candidate or property owner, if readily available, will be contacted and asked to remove his or her sign. Should it not be removed or the responsible person not immediately available, city staff will remove the sign, which will then be stored for a short period of time, allowing the candidate a chance to retrieve it. If a sign is not retrieved, it will be disposed of. For questions about compliance, contact the Lansing Code Enforcement Officer at 913-727-5488.

Lansing Community Library has numerous activites including a live performance of “Stinky Feet”(above), decorating cupcakes (above right), StoryTeller (below) and much more.
Summer Reading Program By Terri Wojtalewicz, Library Director The Summer Reading program appears to be a huge success this year. As of mid-July when this was written, 270 people are participating in the reading portion of the program and 865 people attended the various programs so far this summer. We have already surpassed last year’s Summer Reading Program participation. We could
not have done this without the support of our sponsors. People have been reading and collecting tickets to put into jars to earn the fun baskets that have been graciously donated. The drawings will take place during the first week of August so be sure to check the website, social media, or at the Library for the list of basket winners. Please take a moment when you see them to thank them for their support.

On the last Thursday of each month, Liz Daniel leads us in an arts and crafts project for adults. Unsure of how to start or never crafted before? No worries! It is designed for the first-time crafter as she walks us through the project step by step. Registration is required for planning purposes and there is a $20 fee to cover all the supplies needed. Be sure to check the newsletter, social media or website for information on upcoming projects. We are so appreciative of the Friends of the Library hosting these fundraisers which allow us to have these wonderful summer programs each year. Another
popular fundraiser for the Library is coming back in September. The Friends are hosting another Paint & Sip fundraiser. Registration will be up soon. This is a BYOB event so anyone between the ages of 18 - 20 will need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian. The Friends organization will provide snacks and water for the evening. The doors open at 6 p.m. and painting starts at 6:30 p.m. As always, we look forward to seeing you at the Library and welcome suggestions on how we can serve you better.
