City Council approves residency requirements

The Lincoln city council approved a new charter ordinance at their June 8 meeting, removing the residency requirements for the City Clerk and City Fire Chief. The previous ordinance required individuals serving in those capacities to reside within the city limits. The new ordinance, Charter Ordinance #10, while adding certain provisions, exempts the city from the provisions of Kansas statutes 14-205 and 14-1502. The ordinance will be published in the Sentinel for two consecutive weeks.

Following a lengthy discussion of distancing and sanitizing rules, the council agreed to open the city pool Monday, June 15 with the County Health Officer, Ladonna Reinert, approving the cleaning check list schedule and open hours set at the May meeting. The pool will not be available for private parties this year, and there will not be swimming lessons offered, either group or private. Councilmember Lisa Feldkamp said George Plante with Pools Plus had looked at the pool and will be sending a bid for the needed repairs in the near future.
