The Manhattan City Commission on Tuesday unanimously approved a sign for Scooter’s Coffee shop.

The monument-style sign the commission approved will be a circular “Scooter’s Coffee” sign with a “Coffee Drive-Thru” sign below it. It is 10 feet tall and 36 square feet, according to documents. Officials plan for the sign to sit on a brick base.

The Mercury previously reported Scooter’s, a Nebraska coffee chain, plans to open sometime this month at 407 McCall Road. A location in Junction City is also opening at 439 W. Sixth St.

In other action Tuesday, commissioners:

  • Unanimously approved allowing Living Word Church to open a daycare at its property. Living Word, at 2711 Amherst Ave., is in a C-5 (Highway Service Commercial District) zone, which doesn’t allow daycares. Commissioners said they were glad that another daycare plans to open in the community.

“I think there is a need for daycare,” said commissioner Usha Reddi. “A lot of families that are having children are on waitlists for some of those areas. So I think there is a need, and I think that this is one way to utilize, especially churches and religious organization.”

Held an executive session for their annual evaluation of city manager Ron Fehr. Brenda Wolf, city clerk, said the commissioners did not take any action following the executive session. The commission will look at Fehr’s contract during its Dec. 17 meeting, Wolf said.
