Riley County Commission updates

By Maura Wery

The Riley County Commission approved the purchase of a new copier for the Riley County District Court Monday.

Court administrator Lanna Nichols brought the proposal to the commission, asking for a $5,178 copi er printer to replace an older model.  Nichols said many of the copiers had been replaced with multifunctional printers, but the county still needed to replace three.

She said her current budget could afford her one and she would budget for the other copiers in the future.

Commissioner Bob Boyd asked GIS director Robert Nall to work with one vendor in order to get a better price and make the decision process easier.

Nall agreed and said he would get back to commissioners on which vendor he would be choosing as well as pricing information.

Bond issue meetings

Larry Satzler, a member of the Riley County Kid Committee, told commissioners that the $12.3 million USD 378 bond election in June will be preceded by three informational meetings. The first will be May 22, and will feature a tour of the Riley County High School.

The next two meetings will be May 29 at the Keats Park Pavilion and June 5 at the Riley Grade School. All the meetings will begin at 6 p.m.

County clerk Rich Vargo said registration for that election closes Tuesday. 

Advance voting by mail will begin May 22. Advance voting in person will begin June 3 and can be done at the Riley County Offices from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Vargo said advance voting in person will end at noon on June 10. The general election June 11 will be held at four voting sites: Leonardville, Sedalia, Riley Center and Keats.

The polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on election day.
