Democrat Staff



The Sedalia City Council will be discussing a new construction project at the Sedalia Regional Airport during tonight’s meeting.

If two items are approved tonight, the airport will get a new taxiway along with other repairs.

Council will review bids and an ordinance approving and accepting an agreement with Emery Sapp & Sons Inc. for the reconstruction and widening of the apron connecting the taxiway, replacement of the MITL system, replacement of damaged drain pipe and end section and regrading of Runway 18-36 safety area at the Sedalia Regional Airport.

According to information in the meeting packet, the city is responsible for 10 percent of the cost, which is $36,046.46. The remaining portion is funded through a grant.

Council will also review an ordinance approving and accepting Aviation Project Consultant Supplemental Agreement No. 1 with H.W. Lochner Inc. for the addition of construction phase services to the design services contract for the apron connecting taxiway reconstruction project, which means Lochner will oversee the construction work for the city.

During the meeting Mayor Stephen Galliher will present service awards to Park Department Maintenance Tech II Charles Amos for 20 years of service, Police Officer Andrew Silvey for 10 years of service, City Administrator Gary Edwards for five years of service, Police Officer Kyle Hayward for five years of service and Sanitation Department Service Worker Raunel Reynoso for five years of service.
