The Sedgwick County Commission will host one of its regular meetings in Park City on Monday night.

The meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. in the city hall’s council chambers at 6110 N. Hydraulic in Park City. There will be a meet and greet beginning at 6 p.m.

It’s the second evening commission meeting in one of the county’s five districts. The county hosted an April commission meeting in Derby. Meetings are usually in downtown Wichita on Wednesday mornings.

Chairman Jim Howell championed the idea of scheduling occasional meetings at locations besides the Sedgwick County Courthouse as a way to better connect with constituents. This meeting is in commissioner Richard Ranzau’s District 4.

The Monday meeting agenda includes votes on a $1.5 million grant application to the Kansas Department of Corrections, a speed limit on a section of 71st Street South and a contract for a June 18 hazardous waste collection event in Haysville.

It will also have presentations on Howell’s first sixth months as county chairman, public works projects in District 4 and an “organizational redesign” presentation from county manager Michael Scholes.
