Donate a used cell phone for recycling
June 27th – July 4th
37th & Maize Road (Next to Goodwill)

City of Maize Updates

City Administrator Richard LaMunyon From the City Administrator - March 25, 2015:

  1. Outlook for 2015
    As spring blossoms for 2015 we look forward to another positive and successful year. This past year was very productive for our City and this trend is projected to continue. Some of the projects for this year will include:
    1. An upgrade of 37th Street from Maize Road west to 119th Street
    2. The continuation of the road maintenance plan for several Maize roadways
    3. Ongoing development of a citywide sidewalk plan
    4. Examining the possibility of a youth splash pad feature at City Park
    5. Consideration of permanent City Park restroom facilities
    6. The feasibility of a new Public Works Maintenance facility
    7. Completion for a plan for future expansion of the wastewater plant
       
  2. 2016 BUDGET PREPARATION
    City Council members and City staff are in the process of planning for 2016 budget requirements. As in the past there are challenges that will need to be addressed. However, there will also be great opportunities to continue to grow and enhance our city. From a fiduciary standard our city is very secure. 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 2016 will not be recommended.
     
  3. ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT
    There were 105 new single-family home starts last year. Per-capita our City was the leader in the State - by far! We anticipate a significantly lower number of housing starts this year to allow for these 105 new homes to be completed. However, we still expect that the number of housing starts for 2015 will continue to be above average compared to that of other cities. We welcomed many new families to our community and anticipate doing the same this year.

    City staff is currently working with some new businesses that want to build and operate in our community. We are optimistic that an announcement will be made in the near future regarding this. Our Maize Industrial Park plan is now in place at 53rd and 119th Street. Construction is underway on our first new company, Reiloy-Westland Manufacturing. It is scheduled to open this summer. A second manufacturing plant has made a commitment to build here in Maize. City Council has taken some preliminary action to encourage them. Construction for this company should begin this summer.
     
  4. OPERATIONS
    City operations are working very smoothly. As with any business there are always challenges as demands continue to increase. For the past several years we have been blessed with City Council members who share a common vision. They are consistent in their actions and have established supportive workplace policies. The result is a quality, stable workforce of City employees who enjoy their jobs and appreciate the support they receive from all of you.

Thank you for being a part of the Maize family!

Richard LaMunyon
City Administrator
