Good news for at least a couple of Manhattan/Ogden schools Monday, with occupancy permits issued for Northview elementary and anticipated for Lee’s addition and Woodrow Wilson. Of course Woodrow Wilson and Theodore Roosevelt already were announced as later openings on Friday.
USD 383 Associate Superintendent Bob Seymour did have one piece of good news regarding construction, during Monday’s intergovernmental meeting, involving the high school, with all the staff having a chance for back to school activities and being “thrilled with that.”
Another topic dealt with by intergovernmental leaders Monday involved continuing discussion on radio updates because of narrow banding requirements. Ty Warner with the Flint HIlls Regional Council was a guest at the meeting, and emphasized consideration of a wider area than just Riley County when making changes.
Warner says partnering together may help with all the mandates required of communities today.
The intergovernmental group meeting Monday includes representatives from Riley County, City of Manhattan, USD 383, Kansas State, the Manhattan Area Chamber of Commerce and Fort Riley.
