Randy Speaker doesn’t use the term “flipping” — accurate though it may be — to describe his proposal to have the city of Topeka acquire foreclosed, tax-delinquent or otherwise distressed property, then fix it up and resell it for a small profit.
Topeka’s assistant city manager instead chooses other words to describe the venture.
The State of Kansas is experiencing dry conditions to vegetation that can be considered combustible and hazardous. Because of these conditions, the City of Shawnee Fire Department is banning all outdoor burning effective immediately regardless if a permit has been issued. (more…)
Due to low humidity and dry conditions, and increased incidents of fire across the Johnson County area, a temporary ban on all open burning has been issued for the protection and safety of citizens and the preservation of property.
The ban prohibits all outdoor burning, including open fires, outdoor fireplaces, cooking grills, fire pits, bonfires and yard chimineas. Citizens are reminded to always dispose cigarettes in approved fire safe containers. Do not discard cigarettes from vehicles or in areas of grass, mulch, brush or leaves.
No open burning permits will be issued until the dry environmental conditions and low humidity have improved, and the threat of fires has decreased.
Notification will be made when the burn ban is lifted.
If you have questions, please contact the Lenexa Fire Department Prevention Division at 913.888.6380. Always dial 9-1-1 in the event of an emergency.
