The McPherson City Commission meeting Monday morning featured a light agenda with updates from Community Development Director Tom Stinemetze, Finance Assistant Richard Miller, and Director of Public Works, Jeff Woodward.

Stinemetze sought and ultimately gained unanimous approval for the yearly boundary resolution, that now includes the island of the planned Love's Travel Center on east Kansas Avenue at the southeast corner of I-135 and U.S. 56 highway.

Miller got approval for a licensing agreement between Healthy Company Alliance of Hutchinson and the City of McPherson for a Wellness Program to be provided for and accessable to the employees of the City of McPherson.

Woodward reported no progress on the Oxford Pointe and Barnstormers east drainage projects due to the holidays and wet conditions. He also got approval for the payment of bills for the waste water treatment plant and repairs of railroad crossings in McPherson. The railroad crossing repairs and asphalt costs will ultimately be passed onto K&O Railroad.

Following City Adminstrator Nick Gregory's report, the city commission held an executive session and study session.
