by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow â€” The Wellington City Council has voted to apply for a Kansas Department of Transportation grant which if obtained would fund the construction of concrete hike and biking trails around Hargis Creek Watershed in northeast Wellington.The city council and staff members have been discussing building a path that can be used for walkers, joggers and bicyclers. The long-term goal is to build a path that would loop around and connect the city’s four biggest parks:â€¢Hargis,â€¢Century Park – formerly known as Lions Club Park – in central Wellington north of the U.S. 80-160 viaduct,â€¢Woods Park, south of the municipal golf course,â€¢Worden Park, in northwest Wellington, home of the sports complex.But the completion of such a path route is years away. Right now, the council is looking to build just one phase of the overall project.At its Dec. 18 meeting, the council voted to overrule a recommendation of the Park Board, an advisory board for the council, and go with a path around Hargis Creek Watershed. The park board had recommended Woods Park in that it would be easier to eventually connect with Worden Park, said Wellington Mayor Roger Stallbaumer.Instead the council decided to start with Hargis. The path, if built, would loop around the Hargis Creek and eventually head west onto Hillside Road (see proposed map below). The Hargis Creek project would be built in four phases. The first phase would be two loop paths on the east end of the watershed, the second phase would be on the west end. The third phase would be on the south end, and a fourth phase would be to stretch west on Hillside Road.The funding will come out out of a Transportation Enhancement Grant fund through KDOT which currently has $15 million to disperse in a 2013-14 timeframe. The city must have an application to KDOT by February 15.Wellington City Economic Development Director Cody Sims says KDOT will recommend the city submit a grant application with the entire project, and they would award the selected cities for a certain number of feet for a certain number of dollars.Sims estimates that the Hargis project will cost $541,946. The state would pay for 80 percent and the city would pay for 20 percent of the funding.The city did contact the Wellington school officials about whether this would mess with the cross country tracks at the annual meet held in September. With a few modifications, it was decided both the hike/bike path and cross country routes would not interfere with the other.Proposed hiking/biking path around Hargis Creek. Close Forgot password?

Report Reply 2 replies · active 397 weeks ago -7 Vote up Vote down two ears, one mouth · 397 weeks ago Why listen to the park board? They probably only did a little more research than the city Counsel. Why have a walking path around the only real place to hold a family picnic, play disc golf and the golf course. Did you just not run an article on having people volunteer…seems it does not matter now does it… I am at least glad they decided to go foward with the project so now we can hike and walk around the smell.

Should just roll over and say thank you can I have another when it comes to the decisions made by the councel. Who are elected by the people?????? Nothing wrong with people who post their displeasure. Report Reply 0 replies · active 397 weeks ago -5 Vote up Vote down Sam · 397 weeks ago I agree with you The Voice. Look at the select few who wants the trail vs the ones who don’t get to enjoy the grant project. This town does not look at the over all public use. They sure didn’t want ac/heat in the auditorium for everyone. But must say they have put in ramps at crossings for the handicap. Now they need to finish a sidewalk to walmart that needs done asap. I’ll be damn if they get my vote on election again. Can’t believe I have minus 2 expelling my health reason for not wanting the trail. Just shows how disrespectful jerk people are. That is ok I have lived with disrespect for years, nothing has changed. Report Reply 0 replies · active 397 weeks ago +5 Vote up Vote down JaneJane · 397 weeks ago It’s not that the city is not wanting to fix all of the other stuff that needs done around Wellington, it’s that there is no funding for it. Recently we have been fortunate enough to be the recipient of two grants that have provided us funding for walking trails.This is another one of those opportunities. The people who are giving out the monies for these grants are the ones that determine what you can and can not do with their money.Since exercise and healthy lifestyles are at the forefront right now, that is where the money is going. I am sure that all of us would like to see a sidewalk out to McDonalds and WalMart. I am sure that the City Council is looking for funding for that as we speak. Until something comes up as a way to pay for that we need to do projects that we can get money for.

Work on the office to house the National Drainage and Irrigation Authority (NDIA) at Onverwagt, West Coast Berbice in Region Five (Mahaica-Berbice) which began last year, has been completed.The NDIA office, which is situated alongside the Headquarters of the Mahaica/Mahaicony/Abary-Agricultural Development Authority (MMA/ADA), will seek to upgrade the drainage system and make better provisions for drought in the Region.The soon-to-be commissioned Region Five office of the NDIAActing NDIA Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Dave Hicks said recently, “The NDIA knows that farmers anywhere, who have a 50 per cent fear of losing their crops or livestock to floods or drought, will not bother to farm. So the NDIA in Region Five, in particular, will work and support the agencies in doing whatever is necessary to boost farmers’ confidence in the D&I system and have them feel encouraged to cultivate and even expand their production of crops and livestock within the Region.”According to Hicks, all that is required to get the office up and running is the installation of connections for electricity to the building.The office will be manned by a senior engineer of the NDIA assisted by ancillary staff and he will support the MMA/ADA; the Regional Democratic Council and the Neighbourhood Democratic Councils (NDCs) in the Region to implement and monitor projects aimed at increasing the discharge capacity of rain-flood waters and the provision of irrigation for agricultural purposes during El Niño (drought) weather conditions.NDIA projects for 2018Among the projects the Region Five NDIA office will spearhead and support in 2018 are the upgrading of resuscitated sea sluices along the West Berbice Coast; the establishment of additional sluices and the provision of another electrical pump for drainage of West Berbice at Trafalgar. The NDIA will also look to increase the hydraulic efficiency of the tertiary and secondary drainage systems in Region Five with the provision of nine excavators. These machines will be at the disposal of the Regional Administration for routine remedial and emergency works along the Region Five coast.The NDIA’s office will also seek to boost the efficiency of drainage in the riverine areas. Projects to be undertaken in this area this year will include extending the polder behind Pine Ground to Gordon Table along the right bank of the Mahaicony River to protect cultivation plots from water coming in from the backlands; and installing a dual purpose pump at Mora Point, Mahaicony River, to provide either drainage or irrigation when necessary. The pump is to be acquired from India. Other projects include infrastructural upgrades for replenishment of the Abary Conservancy with water from the Berbice River and the drawing down of water from the upper reaches of the Mahaica River at Kuliserabo to supply the Perth/Biaboo Main Canal for the benefit of low-risk rice production aback Mahaicony.The NDIA will also fund the replacement of tail regulators for all the high-level irrigation canals within the MMA/ADA project area in West Berbice. This is to ensure better management of irrigation water supplies and less stress on the drainage system from free-flowing water into canals without tail gates.Hicks said the NDIA was assisting the MMA/ADA since that agency did not have the financial resources at the moment.
