Commission includes Riley in flood plan

By Brady Bauman

Riley County commissioners voted 3-0 to approve a contract to include the city of Riley in the county’s Floodplain Management Services Thursday morning.

The agreement provides Riley with the county’s expertise when it comes to planning and development, building permit reviews and inspections.

“This is the kind of stuff we need to do,” Commission Chairman Bob Boyd said.

The commissioners said the city of Riley approached them about the possibility of being included in the services.

In other items, commissioners also approved an on-call agreement with Alfred Benesch and Company, a civil engineering firm in Manhattan.

The agreement included the firm’s hourly rates and a $10,000 project budget, which the firm can’t exceed without permission from the county.
