The Hays City Commission at Thursday's meeting will resume a discussion about whether to possibly opt out of the Public Employer-Employee Relations Act, which effectively would end the city’s negotiations with three local labor unions.
The work session will be at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at Hays City Hall. No action will be taken.
While PEERA is optional for local governments, the city has “opted in” since 1972 — and is one of only 12 cities that does so. Employees from the city's three labor unions have publicly urged the commission to continue its involvement in PEERA.
Other agenda items include:
• An update on 911 dispatch and radio communications improvements from Ellis County Emergency Management Coordinator Darin Myers.
• Award of bid for cart paths on the back nine of Fort Hays Municipal Golf Course.
• Requested annexation of blocks one, two and five of the proposed Ottley Addition.
• A 2017 city boundary resolution.
