New incorporation petition determined 'insufficient'

Pottawatomie County has received a new petition for incorporation in the Green Valley area.

County Counselor John Watt told commissioners Monday morning the county clerk had “received by email last Tuesday a series of documents regarding incorporation into a city in the southwest part of the county.

“You may recall a petition was filed with the count clerk last month,” he continued. “It was determined to be deficient.”

Watt said the incorporater decided to “try and reinvent the wheel and emailed documents to the county clerk rather than delivering paper copies. The new documents wanted to utilize the previous signatures that had been filed in March with the clerk.”

He told the commission he felt this latest petition was also deficient.

“I don’t think it meets statutory requirements,” he said.

“Both Dawn (Henry, county clerk) and I believe the email submission was indeed a request for incorporation and was indeed a new petition,” he said, adding there was a memo and letter for the commission to read. He told the commissioners at this point, they had no involvement, the decision on the sufficiency of the petition laid with the county clerk.

“We will send a copy of Dawn’s memo and my letter to the incorporater,” he continued. “I will assume, at some point in the foreseeable future, he will correct deficiencies and we’ll receive another petition. There will be a discussion if that happens.”

Covid-19 Uptick

Health Department Director Leslie Campbell told commissioners there were over 90 cases of Covid-19 in the county, with several outbreaks in the school and one large nursing home outbreak. She clarified those 90 cases were just those investigated by the health department. “We have other cases going through the state.

Campbell said the health department gave out 160 booster shots Friday in Wamego, but ran short on the vaccine. They hope to have more next week.

“We are starting our five- to 11-year-old clinics next week or the week after,” she said. “We have the vaccine for that. Several of them here. We may be going out to the schools, but we’ll get a feel on how that works. Five to 11 is a little bit tricky.”

Rezonings

The commission approved three requests for rezoning.

The first request was for 19.5 acres north of St. Marys, from A1 to AR. The property is owned by Judith Michels and Robert Yonke, the applicant is Mike Drippe. There was a protest petition, with concerns about a subdivision and traffic and clearance for a preexisting runway nearby. However, the rezoning was recommended by the Planning Commission.

The commission approved the rezoning 3-0, with a caveat that a “no build” area be incorporated in the plat to avoid interference with the runway.

The second request was from Robert and Nancy Snyder for a 31.9 acre property near St. George. This was also A1 to AR. There was no protest, and the commission also approved this request.

The final request was from Kendra Thorson on a 19.5 acres north adjacent to Wheaton. There being no protest, this was also approved.

Sanitation Report

Scott Schwin, county sanitarian, reported he issued nine health permits, inspected four facilities for sale or refinance, did three water tests and had four consultations last month.

The transfer station shipped 1,22.23 tons in October, bringing the yearly total to 13,485.43. Total revenue so far this year, $690,430.55 with a disposal expense of $486,824.02.

Schwin also reported the clean-up on Ebel Rd. was complete and the county bore no expense.

Building Permits

Gregg Webster, zoning, reported 13 new housing permits in October. He said the average home is 1,477 square feet and the average cost is $376,341.

Courthouse Lights

The old Pottawatomie County Courthouse will be lit for Christmas, with a lighting ceremony at 5 p.m., Nov. 29. Commissioners were invited to attend.
