Friday Greetings,

City Administrator Eric Berlin and Assistant City Administrator Kim Nakahodo attended the International City/County Management Association Annual Conference in Baltimore, MD this week.

The North Kansas City Business Council hosted their Annual Recognition Awards Luncheon on Thursday, September 27.  The City of North Kansas City was awarded with a 2018 New Infrastructure & Quality of Life Recognition for Diamond Parkway; North Kansas City Parks & Recreation was awarded a 2018 Quality of Life Recognition for the new Parks Recreation Center; and the City of North Kansas City and the YMCA were awarded 2018 Quality of Life Recognition for the recent renovation and expansion project.

Demolition work at 1900 Swift began this week and is expected to ramp up next week.  The brick pavers surrounding the structure have been salvaged and will be reused when the building is rebuilt.  

Recreation Manager Cheryl Martin was awarded the Honor Roll from MU Extension this week.  The Honor Roll represents a Leader in the Community and supports the vision and value of MU Extension programs through Community Partnership. Great Job Cheryl!

The City owns and is responsible for dredging sediment in the culvert that serves the Hillside Levee Creek below Ozark Street every two or three years.  The City’s contractor, Blue Moon Hauling finished the project today.   

As reported last week, repairs to the damages to the 26th Avenue pump station are nearing completion.  Repairs to the security fence were completed yesterday, and painting of the interior of the structure was completed today. A brick layer who works for the contractor is mortaring a gap between the bricks on south wall and the roof today, and should complete the repairs on Monday. To protect the pump station from a similar incident, crews will replace the curb in front of the building with an 18” curb that will serve as an effective barrier.  This new curb will be installed in a week or two, completing all repairs.

Construction work will begin on removing the brick wall in Administration over the weekend and will continue into next week.  The removal of this wall will improve communications and workflow at City Hall’s front counter. 

We would like to welcome two new employees to North Kansas City on Monday, October 1: Raschelle Perry will join us as the new Court Administrator and Brock Harmon will join us a Parking Control Officer.  Welcome aboard!
