Edgerton’s city council annexed property into the city limits and approved crosswalk signage at their Aug. 9 city council.
Harold J. Curry, trustee of the Curry Survivor’s Trust dated June 13, 1996 and the Curry Family Trust dated June 13, 1996, submitted an annexation request property he owns generally located directly north of 31800 W. 196th and east of 32285 W. 191st Street.
Kansas Statute 12-520 states that the governing body of any city, by ordinance, may annex land to such city if that land adjoins the city and a written petition for consent to annexation is filed with the city. The property owner has filed the required petition for Consent for Annexation. This property is contiguous to property within the City of Edgerton corporate city limits.
The council also approved the installation of Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon (RRFB) system along Sunflower Road for pedestrians and bicyclists crossing Sunflower Road between Martin Creek Park and Big Bull Creek Park.
Of the four options presented, the council approved a Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon (RRFB) system that is pedestrian activated. The system could be solar powered or hard wired if power is available nearby. The estimated cost is $30,000 to $40,000.
The Martin Creek Trail project will begin next week.
