Monday’s Riley County Commissioner meeting’s agenda was full of various updates and briefings on important upcoming events.
Riley County Historical Museum Director, Cheryl Collins, gave updates on how the museum is doing and mentioned upcoming exhibits. The newest exhibit involves a kinetic three dimensional sculpture that will be on display next month.
During the meeting’s press conference, Greg McClure shared information about the Riley County Livestock Association Summer Tour coming up this Sunday.
Riley County Police Captain, Tim Hegarty, gave a presentation on vehicle burglaries. This time of the year is the prime time for vehicle burglaries due to new students moving to Manhattan. Hegarty says students should keep their vehicles locked and should keep valuable items out of their vehicles as well. Commissioners expressed concern about new students not being aware of the cell phone law, but Hegarty says signs have been put up on campus.

The meeting concluded with Counselor/Director of Administrative Services, Clancy Holeman, giving a public hearing notice regarding the sanitary code amendments and Planning/Special Projects Director, Monty Wedel, giving a presentation about the property maintenance code/building code.
