City of Maize Updates

City Administrator Richard LaMunyon From the City Administrator - September, 2015:

  1. Reiloy USA

    The official ribbon cutting for Reiloy USA was held on September 3, 2015.  Their new state-of-art manufacturing facility in Maize Industrial Park doubles their available manufacturing space.   From Maize their products are shipped worldwide. Reiloy USA places high value on their employees and brings to Maize sixty employees; many of whom have made lifetime careers with the company.  Additionally, fifteen new jobs are projected to be brought to the Maize facility.  Reiloy USA was founded in 1969 in Wichita under the name Westland Corporation.  They have built a solid reputation in the plastics industry for high performance screws and barrels for injection molding.  They joined the third generation family-owned German company, Reifenhäuser Gruppe, in 2012.   Reiloy USA is the only manufacturing facility in North America for the Reifenhäuser Gruppe. 

  2. 37th Street Improvement

  3. This multi-jurisdictional road upgrade between Maize Road and 119th is now under construction.  An agreement between Maize, Wichita and Sedgwick County was completed earlier this year.  The plan is to make the road a two-lane asphalt road with improved drainage. After the upgrade is complete the City of Maize will assume all maintenance and snow removal.  It is anticipated that within the next 3-5 years an additional asphalt overlay will be applied.

  4. Striping Roadways:

  5. Public Works crews have been busy using the new paint-striping machine.  Maize and Tyler roads are just a couple of the roads that have been completed. The purchase of this equipment allows the City of Maize to keep the streets clearly marked for safety.  In addition, it saves several thousand dollars in contract fees annually. 

  6. Sidewalks

  7. City staff is working on developing a citywide sidewalk improvement plan. Academy Street sidewalks have been upgraded this year along with portions of Park and King streets.

  8. Economic Development:
    • A second manufacturing company, Areotech, is under construction in the new Maize Industrial Park.  The manufacturing plant is scheduled to open by the year’s end.  Another 65 employees will become a part of the Maize community.

    • The Busby, Ford & Reimer Accounting firm’s new office is under construction. Located on 37th just east of WSU campus, it is scheduled to open in the spring.

    • Construction on the new Dairy Queen, 3820 N. Maize Road, is on schedule.  The anticipated opening is on or before November 1st.

    • Twenty-four new housing permits and two tri-plex permits have been issued to date.

Good things are happening!

Caring Hearts

Caring Hearts

Caring Hearts provides assistance to families in Maize and the surrounding area year round by providing boxed and canned goods, Dillon’s gift-cards, clothing, toiletries, assistance with utility bills, heaters during the winter and presents during the holiday season. We expect the need to be as great as last year when we helped over 60 families for Christmas. The Maize Lions Club, students and staff from USD266 and the Maize Police Department have joined the effort but we still need volunteers and donations for the effort. If you feel you can join us by donating your time, money, or gifts, please contact the Maize Lions Club at
