Mowing Easements

Citizens of Maize are responsible for mowing all easements, including ditches, alleys, and/or any right-of-way adjacent to their property.  It is also the homeowner's responsibility to trim tree limbs in these areas.  Additionally, citizens are responsible for cleaning clogged culverts which have a tendency to cause occasional flooding problems in and around neighborhoods.

City of Maize Updates

City Administrator Richard LaMunyon

From the City Administrator - March, 2016:

  1. Outlook for 2016
    As we work our way into spring, all indicators point to a successful and productive 2016. The past year ended on a very positive note, and Maize remains one of the fastest growing cities in the State. Some City projects for this year will include:
    1. Construction of the new youth splash pad featured at the City Park
    2. Construction for a new permanent City Park restroom facility
    3. Opening of the new Public Works Maintenance facility
    4. Continuation of improvements to Maize Park Cemetery
    5. Several Maize roadways are scheduled for upgrade and maintenance
    6. Improvements and expansion of the citywide sidewalk plan
    7. Completion of the funding and plans to expand the wastewater plant
    City Council members and City staff are in the process of planning for the 2017 budget. State Statutes require the City budget be adopted and submitted by the end of July each year. This requires planning a budget that will remain effective eighteen months after it has been passed. As always, there are certain challenges to consider during the planning and adoption process. By the same token, the budget planning process provides for the opportunities that have allowed our City to grow and prosper. As the 2017 budget process unfolds, Maize’s financial position is on a very solid foundation. The City Council has taken great strides to protect and utilize City funds in a manner that provides the utmost benefits for all. Our City has not required an increase in taxes for several years, and a tax increase for 2017 will not be recommended.

    As previously reported, the Maize Industrial Park is now a reality. Reiloy USA, our first manufacturing plant, opened last year with sixty-five employees on site. The second business, Aero-Tech Manufacturing, with another sixty-five employees, will open next month. In addition the City has received other business inquiries regarding building in the Maize Industrial Park. Other recent developments include:
    1. The new Dairy Queen is in full operations and is quickly becoming a favorite "stopping off place" for our residents.
    2. Accounting firm of Busby, Ford & Reimer LLC’s new offices located at 37th & Walker Street is now operational.
    3. It is anticipated that the construction of the new Watercress Villa's upscale apartment complex will begin this summer.
    4. Six building permits for new homes have been granted so far this year.

    City operations are running effectively and resourcefully. Employee morale is high and employee turnover is very low. As our City continues to grow, demands for City services continues to increase in all areas.

With the support of the City Council and a positive attitude of employees, a cohesive team is in place to serve our community. There are always challenges and obstacles to confront, however, the Maize employee team believes in changing such encounters into opportunities and positive conduits to get the job done.

Thank you for being a part of the Maize family!
