Pleasanton church to be interim home of city's senior center

Updated: Oct 27, 2023

The Linn County Commission signed final papers on the sale of the former Pleasanton Senior Center on Monday.

MOUND CITY – Members of the Linn County Commission signed final papers on the sale of the former Pleasanton Senior Citizens building on Monday, Oct. 23. The net proceeds of the sale was $55,000. The new owner will take possession of the building on Friday, Oct. 27 at 5 p.m.

Real Estate Agent Brandon McGinnis explained that anything left in the building at the time of closing becomes the buyer’s property.

Public Works Director Shaun West said that all items should be moved out of the building by that time. Some items will be stored for later use.

According to Assistant Public Works Director Jessica Hightower, the senior meals

from East Central Kansas Area Agency on Aging (ECKAAA) will be delivered to the

United Methodist Church in Pleasanton starting Friday, Oct. 27, until the new Senior

Center at Sixth and Main streets is open.

Seniors will be able to gather at the church for the meals, or if they prefer home

delivery, the meals will be delivered by volunteers to their homes.

Most of the kitchen utensils and other cookware from the former senior center will be stored until the new building is opened. A few items will be used by the kitchen at

the county’s Justice Center.

In other business, the commissioners:

• Learned from West that all evaluations for the public works department had been completed and turned in.

• Approved a resolution to install cattle crossing signs on 500 Road between Kansas Highway 31/52 and Lee Road.

• Learned from West that the county will receive about $358,800 from items sold on PurpleWave.

• Approved a burial permit application by Brightspeed for a phone service line at 5496 W. 1800 Road.

• Approved the re-engineering of a burial permit application for KwiKom to bury fiber in the roadway on Devlin Road near 2000 Road with the understanding that that any future damage to the road created by needing access to the line would be at KwiKom’s expense.

• Learned from West that a 20-inch-long culvert that is 60 inches in diameter needs to be replaced at the intersection of 2050 and Valley roads.

• Learned that a tractor windshield was broken last week while mowing.

• Heard from West that the cost-share for noxious weed chemicals has been completed and the total cost was $31,577.

• Accepted the donation of a dock system for the Linn County Park Lake from Evergy.
