Got a gripe or suggestion for Sedgwick County? Commissioners taking input at two meetings

Been itching to get something off your chest about Sedgwick County? Two county commissioners are holding meetings this week to get input from constituents.

Commissioner Jim Skelton’s 5th District Advisory Board will meet at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Oaklawn Activity Center, 4904 S. Clifton. Skelton began a district advisory board earlier this year. Skelton serves District 5, which includes southeastern Wichita, Derby and Mulvane.

During this week’s meeting, a news release from the county said, health department director Claudia Blackburn will give an overview of her department and the medical reserve corps. City of Wichita chief engineer Gary Janzen will discuss the Oaklawn south water main replacement project.

The board meets the last Wednesday of each month and gives residents a chance to talk to Skelton about issues in their neighborhoods and concerns about the county.

The board will not meet in December.

Sedgwick County Commissioner Richard Ranzau is holding a town hall meeting this weekend.

Ranzau, who represents District 4 in north-central Wichita, Valley Center and Park City, will meet with residents from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday at the Life Point Church in Valley Center.
