The Johnson County Commissioners and the Buffalo City Council will hold separate special meetings tomorrow afternoon to consider the Johnson County Community Improvement Project

that would provide upgrades and continued service to nine “taxpayer-owned” properties within Johnson County, the City of Buffalo, and the Town of Kaycee.

If the project is considered favorably, the council may pass a resolution, proposing a 1% specific purpose excise tax in Johnson County and the issuance of general obligation bonds, for the purpose of funding specific projects in Johnson County.

Rick Myers serves as Chairman of JOCO First and explained the proposal and why it should benefit area citizens…

Nearly 100 community leaders are directly involved in managing or directing one of more of the nine “taxpayer-owned” facilities and have cooperated in developing the project that will need county and city support for taking the issue to the voters in the August primary.

The Commissioners will meet at 1pm in the Courthouse and the City Council’s special meeting will be held at the Council Chambers in City Hall at 5:00 p.m.
