Why should we pay 100% for for those on one side of the street for their police, fire, ems and street maintenance? This is only commen since. Thanks Pat for having the where all and guts to keep persuing this as other will not and won't. You have my vote!
You like Landes do not have a clue as to what you are talking about.

Dr. Landes is primarily Hell bent on all the annexation he can get so others' taxes are paying the bills, not his. He is also the puppet of his wealthy supporters who have their hands up his back pulling the levers that work his mouth. Just listen to him -- he fully supports the golf course as is at full taxpayer expense; he supports the airport at full taxpayer expense; and, any and all other endeavors that favor the wealthy electorate. I assume that he will be filing for reeection in about six months. I hate to admit that amid all the recent turmoil of the previous Commission, and the need to get rid of them, I foolishly voted for Dr. Landes. I WILL NOT make that mistake again!! I hope other common, everyday, normal working or retired voters will see fit to do the same. Dr. Landes does not represent us or our interests and needs!!

Clueless haha Must be one of the old boy network developers haha. Clean up this city and the boundaries. Why must we continue to be the laughing stock of kansas.
Nope, you are wrong, female - retired, nothing to do with the good old boy network. Own a home, pay taxes and complain like everyone else. McFarland Road is part of the swiss cheese and has been for along time.

Landis needs to resign, go back to the hospital, "For the people - HE ISN'T!!!. What makes him look good is. If he wants the airport, spin city, golf course to continue, get all his buddies to pay for it, not us the taxpayer. We don't want them, have no need for them, and could care less if they existed.

What about the residents that were annexed in and still are not on city sewer and city water? JC is missing an opportunity to get more dollars.

Landes, as well as the other commissioners depend heavily on staff recommendations. I think none of them look anything up on their own. More tax money coming in means they all keep their high payin' jobs.

Pat Landis is a fat assed, filthy rich hospital bitch that thinks taxing the shit out of everyone is the answer to the citys problems. He needs to resign and then go see a brain surgeon for a functioning brain. If you ever wondered what happened to the dorkie, nerdy guy you use to beat up in high school, now you know.
Landis and the other commissioners have only budgeted the home finances. Not a one has had to make payroll, make quarterly taxes, each one has worked for the government or as landis is a contract doctor being paid out of Topeka. Cut the budget across the board....

OK, all you people that think Landes will save the City go ahead and follow him. Can't you remember what Rod Barnes did to this City?

Landes is doing the same thing. So follow another looser and give him your support to put us in over our heads again. They city cannot even manage what it has now. Can you imagine what will happen to all the county roads if they take on more properties in the county?

I hope everyone in the county owns a HUMMER, you will never get out in a snowstorm again!

Follow your messiah and see where it gets you.

Ask Ms. Logan what she will charge to represent the city in court when the people of the county file against annexation.

Pat Landes is a complete idiot. The county residents are not getting anything free from the city. The city residents don't get anything free, so why does anyone think the county does. That's Landes and his spin machine talking.

The city cannot even maintain streets and infrastructure, yet Landes wants to annex more property, maintain more roads, provide more services. Does anyone really believe that theses properties that he wants to annex will actually bring in enough revenue to pay for all that? No, the city and all those that are paying exorbitant taxes now will be taxed more along with those that are annexed in from the county.

Miles of roads will need to be maintained, water lines, bridges, etc. How can a City that is so far in debt keep on adding more things to maintain?

Let's get Mr. Landes and the other City Commissioners, the ACTING City Manager, Mr. Yearout, along with other city officials out into these abandoned sub divisions so they can see what's going on. Street signs laying in the roads, weeds six feet tall, cracking asphalt, broken curbs, and litter.

Over 600 vacant lots, yet you want to annex more properties? Follow Landes and this City will be bankrupt. Mr. Landes and his egotistical attitude will destroy this city.

They oughta annex the whole county. County government is a waste. It was designed for a frontier era which no longer exists.

Change a few words, this is just an anti-Obama rant retrofitted. The same screaming idiots whining that they "just want their country back" attacking Landes proves he's on the right track.

Consolidation like Riley county would probably work. It would streamline services and make one governing body responsible for the county and city. It would also prevent any annexations by the city...according to Kansas statute. The only kicker is the county residents' property taxes would go up and the city residents property tax would go down. I don't know the details of setting this up but the statutes lay it out. I don't think the present city and county commissioners can get along well enough to do this. The money behind each commission are different groups of people. And they don't agree on much either.

Actions. He is the only City Commissioner whom does get it right And doesn't need to play in to the cameras and grandstand. Move this process forward and make others pay their fair share. I for one am tired of getting double dipped and those in the City or Ciry's edge getting a free ride. We the City have bigger issues. Bring this annexation forward and to closure on the vocal minority. Let's move on As this should of been done years ago.
