The McPherson City commission approved repairs to minor electrical issues in several City owned facilities on Monday in order to comply with inspection standards enforced by the Kansas Department of Labor.
City administrator Nick Gregory told the commission, "It's been about 10 years since we were inspected. Several months back, the Kansas Department of Labor came in, identified a number of things that needed to be corrected to be up to code in all the City facilities. We've addressed the majority of them. The big outstanding issues have to with having updated codes for ground fault interrupter circuits and some exit signs in some various buildings."
The City Commission approved Johnson Electric to do the compliance work at a cost of $16,200.
The facilities affected are:
McPherson Animal Shelter
McPherson Police Department Storage Shed
McPherson Cemetery Office and Maintenance buildings
Turkey Creek Golf Course
McPherson Fire Department
McPherson Park Department
McPherson Street Department
McPherson Municipal Center
