McPherson City Commissioners moved forward on two items relating to the upcoming expansion of Centennial Drive Monday during their regular meeting.

City Administrator Nick Gregory presented first a petition for the improvements, which would widen the road from Kansas Avenue north to the railroad tracks, that was signed by two of the three impacted property owners.

“Which does make up 51 percent of the property owners for that petition,” Gregory said. “I'm asking that the city commission accept the revised petition for Centennial Drive improvements.”

The commission accepted the petition unanimously and then approved a resolution authorizing the improvements.

“Which, basically, is a resolution determining the advisability of making certain internal improvements in the City of McPherson, particularly as it relates to Centennial Drive,” Gregory said. “It's just one of those steps that we have to follow to eventually go through that process to issue temporary notes.”

Gregory indicated the next step, which would begin the process of issuing those temporary notes, would be brought forth during the Nov. 23 city meeting.
