City Administrator’s Report for 12/9/2011

City Administrator’s Report
FROM: Mahesh Sharma, City Administrator

The Raytown Arts Council will be sponsoring a Christmas Music Festival on December 11th, at 4:00pm, at the Saint Matthew’s Episcopal Church (9349 E 65th Street) which will feature the Raytown Community Symphonic Band and the Saint Matthew’s High Hope Jazz Trio; there will also be a surprise appearance by “a City Hall celebrity”. The event is open to the public and there will be a social hour following.

Community Development
The Board of Zoning Adjustment met on Thursday, December 8th and approved two variance applications. The first application related to 10200 E. 63rd Terrace and was for a variance to the side and rear yard setback requirements of the Neighborhood Commercial District to allow a detached garage to be re-constructed on its original foundation. The second variance related to 6708 Raytown Road and will allow an addition to be constructed onto the south side of Advanced Eyecare that will extend into the front yard setback along 67th Terrace.

The Community Blood Center will be conducting a Blood Drive on Wednesday, December 21st, from 1:00pm to 4:00pm at the Raytown EMS building, in the training room. Appointments can be made online at www.esavealifenow.org (use “raytownems” as the sponsor code) or by contacting Kim at 737-6030.

In sharing the holiday spirit, the department’s staff has donated more than $300 to adopt a family with four children, ages 8 – 16, to provide them with Christmas gifts and really enjoyed shopping with each other for the children’s holiday gifts. The department is also collecting Christmas store items for the Raytown Emergency Assistance Program (REAP) with several staff members giving towards this cause. A collection barrel has been placed in the EMS station.

Welcome to Mark Loughry, our new Finance Director. Mark comes to us via the City of Basehor, Kansas where he had served as the City Administrator. He will begin on Monday.

Public Works
Staff took part in the Central Business District Streetscape bus tour today. The bus tour viewed recently completed streetscape projects with the design consultant and city staff to identify aspects of each location that would be beneficial and feasible to implement for downtown Raytown.

Crews responded to the unexpected minor snow fall on Tuesday morning that resulted in slick streets and were prepared for a predicted light snow fall Thursday night; which did not materialize.
