The Pittsburg City Commission will have a busy meeting tonight after postponing some plans at the last meeting.

In particular, the city commission will look at different funding options for a variety of different projects awaiting city approval.

That includes:

• widening and improvements to Quincy Street, as well as potential alternatives to those plans.

• the improvement of the intersection of 20th Street and Broadway.

• the improvement of the intersection of Broadway and Centennial.

• the upgrade of Broadway south of Centennial.

• the project called the Atkinson Road Bridge project, which would replace and widen a bridge.

• a project called KLINK, which would overlay Broadway from Madison to Second streets.

• a potential storm shelter, currently planned for 18th and Locust, which could house up to 4,000 people.

While that will be the biggest agenda items on the city’s budget for tonight’s meeting, that doesn’t mean the rest of the meeting will be uneventful.

Kim Vogel, Pittsburg director of Parks and Recreation, will provide the city with an update about the plans for the Fourth of July Celebration taking place in Lincoln Park.

The commission will also consider:

•  a motion to vacate the northern 170 feet of a 20-feet wide utility easement to make way for an expansion of the Crawford Count Health Department’s facility.

•  a pair of motions to approve of a HOME application for $400,000 to the State of Kansas Housing Resource Corp. to renovate homes in Pittsburg, and to move ahead with the program if approved by the commission.

• a resolution to award a low interest loan request for Karry/Lillie Phillip for $18,000 and to Linda Butts for $6,000.
