Special Meeting for Indy Commission


The Independence City Commission will meet at 2:00pm this afternoon at Temporary City Hall 811 W Laurel to make a disaster declaration due to the flooding situation. The disaster declaration will allow for various resources from the State of Kansas to be made available to Independence.  The meeting will be held in the Leadership Conference Room. The declaration will be made after city and county officials were alerted by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers about the release of water from area lakes that feed into the Verdigris River.


The previous projection today estimated the river to rise to 44.2’ at the USGS Verdigris River Gage, however, this has been updated to rise to 47’ by Monday based on current conditions and information.  A level of 49’ at the USGS Verdigris River Gage will affect the water treatment plant.  Currently, the water treatment plant is fully operational.
