City of Maize Updates

City Administrator Richard LaMunyon

From the City Administrator - October, 2016:

  1. Park Improvements
    The new splash pad feature at Maize City Park turned out to be a HUGE success.  Hundreds of our younger residents and their families took advantage of it.  We have received many, many positive comments regarding it.  The new park restroom facility is under construction and will be completed soon.  The Park Board is reviewing other possible options for additional park improvements!
  2. Wastewater Plant   

    As reported in our last issue, plans to expand the wastewater plant's operating capacity are a necessity.  The City's exponential growth and development mandates this improvement.  Everything is now in place to begin the process of designing and constructing the upgrade.  The $6 million project will double the plant capacity from 500,000 gallons a day to 1,000,000 gallons a day.  A 20-year low interest state loan was secured for funding.  Payment of the loan will not require an increase in the tax mill-levy. About 90% of the loan will be paid for out of the existing and future budgets. The addition 10% will be obtained from a $3.00 user fee to customers beginning in January 2017.

  3. Economic Development
    Here is a short update of current development projects:

    1. Aero Tech Manufacturing at 53rd & 119th is constructing a second 20,000 sq. ft. building.
    2. Watercress Villa's upscale, gated apartment home complex is under construction.
    3. New storage facility is under construction on 53rd Street east of K-96
