Citizens of Maize are responsible for mowing all easements, including ditches,
alleys, and/or any right-of-way adjacent to their property.
It is also the homeowner's responsibility to trim tree limbs
in these areas. Additionally, citizens are responsible
for cleaning clogged culverts which have a tendency to cause
occasional flooding problems in and around neighborhoods.
From the City Administrator - July, 2016:
On June 15th,
a ribbon cutting ceremony was held at the
new public works facility. In the 130-year
history of Maize, this new building is truly
the first one ever designed and constructed
specifically for the purpose of public works
operations. It contains
space for vehicles and equipment storage. It
provides room for maintenance, office space
and an employee friendly and safe
environment. The facility is designed with
room to grow and expand. It will provide a
base of operations for quality service to
the citizens of Maize for many, many years
to come. Located at 5600 N.
Maize Road, it is a proud landmark from K-96
as you drive past.
This year’s budget is
developing, with revenues and expenditures
unfolding as anticipated. The 2017 working
budget is in the developmental stages. The
plan for the 2017 budget will be similar to
the current one. It will be frugal in
nature, while allowing for city services and
personnel requirements. As in the past
several years, no increase in the Maize tax
mill levy will be required or considered.

unfold. As of this date a few things to

During the past
decade Maize has experienced exponential
growth. Per capita, the City of
Maize remains the fastest growing community
in Kansas. This
progressive development is the result of
several factors, one of which is proper
planning and management. While growth and development is beneficial
for all, it also requires a support system
to sustain it. The service
demands on our city's infrastructure,
specifically the wastewater plant, continues
to increase. Plans to
expand the wastewater plant's operating
capacity have been underway for some time
now. Engineering studies
have been completed, State approval has been
confirmed and a funding strategy is in
place. It's estimated the cost
could be $6,000,000. As
the final plans unfold, our intent will be
to complete the project at a lesser amount.
A tax increase will not be
percent of the required cost will come from
existing budgeted funds. A fee will be
assessed to sewer customers to provide
funding for the remaining ten percent. It's anticipated this monthly fee
will be in the $3.00 range.

public hearing will be held on August 1st
