Johnson County's Commissioners agreed to send a letter of support for Kaycee's Street Project to the State Lands and Investments Board (SLIB) with Kaycee's application to them for matching funds for the project.
Kaycee Mayor Tom Knapp came before the commission at their meeting Tuesday, saying the Consensus Funds Kaycee had applied for had already been approved by the State, and now the town was going after SLIB matching funds for the project.
Knapp said five blocks will directly affect the Kaycee School, two blocks affect it indirectly, so seven of the nine blocks of the project will affect the school in some way.
Knapp also said once these nine blocks of streets are completed, all streets in Kaycee will have been re-done within the last 10 to 12 years.
The commissioners agreed to send a letter supporting Kaycee receiving the SLIB matching funds.
The City of Buffalo and the School District were also expected to send letters of support, according to Knapp.
A decision from the SLIB is expected to come during their January 2014 meetings.
