The chase started near Sutherlands when 2 subjects where spotted in the fenced in area of the store.
One subject got out of the car in town, it is unclear if he was captured.

then there was a vote of 5-0 Nov 15 on the heartless fee
Now It's is Dec 5 3-2 to suck even more life from those who are struggling.
Mayor is 'intent' so his no vote is an phony as his annexation.
15 dollars an hour .. say he shuts off a service off every 4 minutes... that's one (1) dollar to shut the water off.
the city has just grossed $225.00 for the 15 shut offs....IN ONE (1) HOUR..
But his times may be longer while he negotiates the potholed streets of the city.

I hope the mayor hasn't dislocated his shoulder, patting himself on the back.
The 2030 master plan is painfully evolving now. Usd 490's planned middle school is actually showing signs of growth, albeit not the expected growth. As the whole refinery site will need to be cleaned, not just the 40 acres the school has agreed to buy from Coastal.
Will they move it, not if Coastal absorbs most of the cost of the clean-up. This is the city's dream location to force the 24th street bypass. If you want a bypass, there is the KTA.
Bypass unnecessary . There are plenty of streets in city that need attention.
Stadium infrastructure.Unnecessary. I think there is an Alumni with the 2 millionish to build his own infrastructure.
The city doesn't need a football stadium.
Waterline a great deal if the city of Wichita bears all cost of the system. It should lower the mill levy and pay back the lake.
This waterline has the potential to pay the city's way. What would you need to operated the city.
If you cut golf and stadium expenses, maybe the sale of water would zero out the budget. The city operates free, maybe even a surplus for needed items.
There are some ifs. ands, ors, & buts to the sale of water revenue making the needed money for the city to operate, but easily fixed.
Play the water line right it could lead to growth. LOW MILL LEVIES would attract better than this race to 200 mills.
GOLF sold or closed. The money pit will continue to drain the city's coffers.
Now the absurd fee for water reconnect. A caring city leader my butt.

I used RS Means quick cost estimates
You visited Independence Ks ... The data for that area is...
$4.6 million for a 45,000 s.f. elementary school..
$11.9 million for a 110,000 s.f. middle school....
Roughly $17 million for 2 schools... so who is going to be the recipient of this 17 million dollar windfall at the taxpayers expense...
I now see why you are keeping the location of the NEW middle school a SECRET...

I think I will get a fence permit ...
“Legally, we cannot allow access across other people’s property without a right of way,” Rickard said.
So will the city have to purchase the empty lot on Vine to provide access to the properties... But maybe there is one of those Magical Orbamer Grants out there to fund the Fab Five out of another mess...
Thru the empty lot with a cute round a bout... then a cul-du-sac at each end...
What is the cost of a 60' right of way.... 1000' long right of way... $1000.00 a foot...
Curb and gutter... storm drains ... signage
Lighting..... Now it will need at least 100 lights ... just light the ones on the bridge...
I wonder how many other non existent streets there are in the city ...
But maybe there is one of those Magical Orbamer Grants out there to fund the Fab Five out of another mess...
