Elementary Student Shares Her Profits From Her Summer Business With Coldwater

Eight-year-old Violet Darby, a third-grader at Woodland Elementary in Lee’s Summit, has enough personality and enthusiasm for a whole room of people.

Lee's Summit Students Giving Back in Texas' Time of Need

School supplies and a huge shipment of love are going from Prairie View Elementary School to help reopen schools after record flooding wrecked communities in Texas.

On Wednesday morning the life skills classes of teacher Aimee Gorrow and fourth-grade classrooms of April Jackson and Sara Watkins were hectic with students gathering and sorting school supplies and other tasks in their project to re-equip a couple Texas classrooms.

CEDC Discusses Residential Property Regulations

Ryan Elam, Director of Development Services, updated Community and Economic Development Committee members on the formation of residential rental property regulations. Committee members discussed the development of a registration process for rental property owners within the City.

“Last month we also touched on the ‘why,’” Elam reminded the Committee. “That was basically that these types of rental property registration programs are intended to ensure properties are maintained in a safe manner, and that is consistent with the current strategic initiative regarding safety.”

Planning Commissioners Discuss Amending Bylaws

Members of the Planning Commission met on Tuesday, September 12 and further discussed the topic of the amendment of current Planning Commission bylaws to change the order of meeting agendas in order to move the public comment section of the meeting. 

The discussion to change the order of the agenda was sparked by concerns raised by a local citizen who attended the meeting and desired to express his concerns over the impact the approval of a sign application would have on his property, but the application was approved with the consent agenda for that meeting.

VFW Emergency Relief Fund

On behalf of the Commander-in-Chief, thank you for your outpour of prayers and donations for those in the path of Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma.

Initially, our response was limited to only Hurricane Harvey. You were asked to send funds to our National Disaster Relief Fund in support of those VFW members affected in Texas and Louisiana. Your response was nothing short of incredible. Unfortunately, the advent of Hurricane Irma and now Hurricane Jose lingering in the Atlantic, coupled with an unprecedented amount of wildfires out west, we now realize we are facing a series of disasters that will require a larger response. I am asking for your help in providing us the flexibility to be able to offer support to other areas.
