Sedgwick County commissioners will be in Topeka on Tuesday for the Kansas Association of Counties’ County Day. That means their usual Tuesday-morning meeting with county staff department heads will not take place.
Commissioners instead will meet with legislative and county leaders from the south central region as well as the chairs of various committees. No doubt the big topic of conversation will be the state’s budget and the impacts of spending cuts on county government.
They also will meet with the executive director of the Association of Community Mental Health Centers of Kansas, Inc.
Instead of car-pooling to Topeka, board members are driving separately. Some are attending meetings in Wichita that require them to leave later than others; others have personal stops they’d like to make while in the state capital.
Commissioners won’t have their regular meeting Wednesday. Instead, they will talk about the budget and other issues at their annual retreat, which starts at 9 a.m. at the county’s new fire station at 7750 N. Wild West Drive in Park City.
