First day of Spring! We're eager to get outside and enjoy some warmer weather. Of course, this guy in the picture doesn't need a fishing license or boat registration to have some fun on Kansas lakes, but you might need yours.

🎣⛵️ If you do, the clerk's office at the Courthouse can help you with both. Stop in Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. ⛵️🎣

Road and Bridge has a whole bunch of road improvement projects coming soon (they're pretty excited we're getting a little nicer weather lately). Here's a map of what's planned for 2019. First up is to start Wednesday on Halstead Road, between U.S. 50 and West First Street.

There may be a few traffic delays as each project gets underway, so hopefully this helps you plan accordingly. Our workers definitely appreciate when you give 'em a wave and slow down around them.

Here's the list of county projects coming up in 2019:

⚫️ Halstead Road, from Southwest 36th Street to West Dutch Avenue
⚪️ North River Park Road, north of Dutch Avenue
⚫️ Southwest 96th Street, west of the City of Sedgwick
⚪️ Southwest 125th Street, east of the City of Sedgwick
⚫️ South East Lake Road, south of K-196
⚪️ West Dutch Avenue, from North Halstead Road to Hesston Road
⚫️ East First Street, from East Lake Road to the Newton city limits
⚪️ South West Road, from U.S. 50 to West First Street

We're back in business at the Solid Waste facility. A couple weeks ago, we started replacing the floor of our transfer station. It needed a little rest after taking a thumping with trash and machinery for a couple decades. The floor project wrapped up over the weekend.

The rebuilt floor should last many, many years. A special 'thank you' to all our local haulers that worked with us while we checked this project off the list.
