PRESIDENTS NOTE - I hope everyone is enjoying the summer and finds time to relax with a summer vacation. A huge thank you to the members of the Spring Conference Committee and the City of Newton for scheduling and hosting an exceptional conference. Thanks to the Golf and Scholarship Auction Committees & those that donated and bid on the items - the golf tournament raised about $1000 and auction $11,000! - continuing to grow the fund supporting scholarships at KU & K-State. Congratulations to all the Project of the Year Award winners and congratulations to Larry Mangan, who received the 2016 George Williams Award, recognizing his dedication and service to public works throughout his career.
