Time to speak your mind on Manhattan City Budget


The city’s proposed 2012 budget is on the agenda for Manhattan City Commissioners Tuesday night, with the official public hearing to be held. The matter must still go through a second reading after the Tuesday night meeting. There’s also a recommendation for increases in water rates and tapping fees and waste water rates, that would take effect in January.

The status of Lot 9 in the South End Redevelopment district might be official soon, and the City Commission will take a look at options for the area Tuesday night.

And Manhattan will have a new park before the year is out, which will be located near the Flint Hills Discovery Center. Tuesday night’s Manhattan City Commission meeting will take a look at naming the park. Members of the public can also be present to submit their ideas. The meeting will be broadcast on Manhattan Cox Cable Channel 3.
