Less than two weeks after discussions regarding an agreement on a contract with Southwest Kansas Online, Liberal city commissioners voted 4-0, with commissioner Dave Harrison absent, to approve a resolution between the city and Liberal Country Club.
City manager Mark Hall said the resolution referred to modification of an easement and maintenance agreement approved on July 2, 1996.
“This will allow usage of an antenna on top of the (water) tower that will be in compliance with the country club’s desires and the city’s,” he said.
Commissioner Bob Carlile referred to a clause in the agreement which stated failure of SWKO to remit payment to the city by the 10th day of each month would cause termination of the resolution. He inquired as to when the agreement would take effect with a blank inserted later in the contract.
City attorney Shirla McQueen said that blank would need to be filled in with the motion of the commission.
“At the time we prepared this, we didn’t know when the Southwest Kansas Online agreement would be entered into with the city,” she said.
Hall said SWKO has been sent an invoice for the agreement, along with an insurance requirement.
Commissioner Larry Koochel made the motion, which included inserting a March 15 date for the resolution to take effect. That was the date the board had approved a contract in which SWKO agreed to pay $14,400 a year to have its antenna atop the city’s water tower, to be paid at $1,200 per month. Liberal Country Club will receive one-third of that money from the city.
SWKO now has until April 10 to remit its first payment under the agreement passed Wednesday.
