The Hays City Commission will meet 6:30 p.m. Thursday at city hall and vote on finalizing the Bike Hays system.

The Kansas Department of Transportation needs city leaders to approve the plan to build on-street lanes and a multipurpose trail on the levee. The state agency has promised to pay 60 percent of construction costs and oversee the project. The city is responsible for $393,200 of construction and inspection costs.

* Commissioners will vote on approving a taxi license application for Yadday Enterprises LLC dba Convenience Cab.

* Two groups are requesting a cereal malt beverage license for their special events.
