Google Fiber Construction in Lee’s Summit

The construction of the Google Fiber network is underway and will continue, weather permitting.

Residents can expect to see Google subcontractors working within the City’s right-of-way and utility easements. As is typical with underground utility work of this scale, digging could be required in your area. Residents should receive door hangars from Google Fiber prior to construction activity beginning in their neighborhood.

A timeline for Google Fiber residential service availability is not yet available, but is expected to start sometime in 2015. Click the read more for FAQ's and important contact numbers.

City Provides Details about Consideration of Flow Control

There has been much conversation recently about the topic of flow control. In particular, residents want to better understand:

  • What is flow control?
  • Where did the idea originate?
  • Why is the City considering this solid waste option for our community?

Before we can answer these questions, it’s important to understand how we arrived at this option. The City’s landfill will reach its permitted capacity in late 2017 or 2018. As a result, the City’s staff has been exploring the best options for the future of the City’s solid waste services.

Community Development Block Grant Program – Public Engagement Continues

As the City’s 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan and 2015-2016 Annual Action Plan preparations are entering final phases, the public has opportunities to review the draft plan documents as well as an amended Citizen Participation Plan draft and provide input.

City of Lee’s Summit Selects Rick Poeschl as Fire Chief

After a national search and extensive interviews with staff and community-wide stakeholders, the City of Lee’s Summit proudly announces the selection of Rick Poeschl as the new fire chief.  There will be a swearing-in ceremony held in the coming weeks.

Poeschl has been serving as the City’s acting fire chief of the department of 144 employees since the retirement of Keith Martin in September 2014. 

 “I am honored to be chosen as the chief of the Lee’s Summit Fire Department and am excited about our future.  The department is made up of a great group of dedicated personnel committed to providing service excellence.  Our department continues to strive to achieve accreditation through the Commission on Fire Accreditation International (CFAI) by measuring our work against industry standards of excellence – basically holding up a mirror and asking “how are we doing?” We are looking for continual improvement in our service delivery, and have made strides in those areas,” said Poeschl.

Council Committee Recommends Tabling Flow Control Ordinance Until Results of a Solid Waste Survey Are Presented

During its March 2 meeting, the Environment and Natural Resources (ENR) Committee voted to recommend to City Council the execution of a contract for a resident survey to determine the impact of environmental programs, such as the recycling centers, yard waste, compost, and Household Hazardous Waste (HHW), in Lee’s Summit. Beginning in late 2017 or early 2018, the City may not be able to fund many of its award-winning, comprehensive environmental programs when the Lee's Summit Municipal Landfill, located at the Resource Recovery Park (RRP), closes due to it reaching permitted capacity. The revenue generated from trash disposal fees at the RRP currently funds the City’s environmental programs at an approximate $900,000 annual cost.
