Topeka City Council set to elect new Deputy Mayor
Topeka City Council members are voting on a number of items Tuesday evening.
The first one being the election of a new Deputy Mayor.
This item will require at least six votes and happens each year during the third City Council meeting in January.
The Deputy Mayor would serve in the absence or temporary disability of the Mayor for a one-year term.
Other action items to be discussed are the election of a Joint Economic Development Organization (JEDO) Board.
Two council members would serve as JEDO voting members for a one-year term.
The other major topic is the resolution introduced by City Manager Brent Trout to provide street improvement for the Sherwood Village subdivision.
That item will need six votes by the governing body and would establish a benefit improvement district for public streets and storm water improvements in the subdivision.
The estimated cost of the project is $830,000 and will be financed by the City of Topeka through general obligation bonds.
