An architect from Driggs Design will be at the meeting to answer questions the commissioners have about the project. County Administrator Greg Sund said in his memo to commissioners the estimated cost is between $26,000 and $27,000, not including engineering fees.

A representative from Spangenberg Phillips Tice Architects also is scheduled to go before the commission to discuss changes made to the plans for the Administrative Center. The commission also is expected to vote to authorize advertising the revised project for bids.

The commission will also discuss a grant application for Kansas Department of Transportation Corridor Management Grant funding for 230th Avenue north of Interstate 70 exit 157 and 55th street between 230th Avenue and U.S. 183.

At the meeting, commissioners also:

• Will canvass and make official April 1 local election results.

• Will hear an update on the Buckeye wind project.

The commission also will meet in special session at noon Tuesday at the courthouse to continue to discuss a series of facilities upgrades approved by voters in a bond referendum last year.
