School Board secretary Vicki Kohler (right) swears in two newly elected R-3 School Board members at the Board’s April meeting last week. Sworn in were veteran R-3 Board member David Hertzog (left) and newcomer Phillip Kassel (center). Hertzog and Kassel led a slate of four candidates in school elections on April 7. Hertzog begins his third 3-year term on the R-3 Board this spring and Kassel his first. Later in the meeting, the R-3 Board elected John Edenburn its president and re-elected David Adamczyk vice president and Hertzog treasurer. Vicki Kohler was re-appointed School Board secretary. Kassel was elected Pleasant Hill’s representative to the Missouri School Boards Association (MSBA) and John Edenburn was selected the alternate. After the two newly-elected members were sworn in and officers were elected, the R-3 Board went to work and tackled a busy agenda for the April 21 meeting.
City Hall plans street overlays
By F. KIRK POWELL
Editor & Publisher ....The Pleasant Hill City Council will be selecting streets for this year’s overlay program in the next few days. ....Pleasant Hill is joining Belton, Peculiar and Raymore in bidding out street resurfacing and bids were opened in Belton last week. ....Superior Bowen Asphalt Company of Kansas City was awarded the bid again this year. ....City public works director Bob Kee earlier this month presented the City Council a list of 27 streets in town that most need attention and the projected cost of resurfacing them. ....Based on Superior Bow-en’s bid, the cost of resurfacing the 27 streets adds up to $1.11 million. City Hall has budgeted $530,000 for street resurfacing this year plus another $70,000 for patching.
