Edgerton City Council members approved an interlocal agreement that would see Johnson County design and construct improvements to 191st Street between Four Corners Road and Waverly Road during a meeting Thursday night.

In the process, the city rescinded an agreement that would’ve had the county make improvements from Four Corners all the way to Gardner’s city limits.

According to City Administrator David Dillner, both agreements require that Edgerton maintain the newly-improved 191st Street once its finished.

However, under conditions of the older contract, Edgerton may have ended up maintaining portions of the road that eventually become part of Gardner.

The city hired Mike Press, former Johnson County administrator, at a rate of $125 per hour up to $15,000 for consulting services related to the project.

In other business, council members:

• approved a resolution that will allow the city administrator to test a design-procurement purchasing method for wastewater improvements for the intermodal facility. (See story in Friday edition of The Gardner News.)

• approved a resolution to hire Mike Press, former Johnson County administrator, at a rate of $125 per hour up to $15,000 for consulting services related to the intermodal project.

• authorized the hiring of consulting firm, Shafer, Kline and Warren, Inc., to create a master wastewater plan for the city.

• approved a contract between the city and Rene Bannister for janitorial services. The contract expires in February 2011.
