The Clay Center City Council met on the evening of March 19 for their regular meeting.

Council member D. Hess reported that a grant to fund the replacement of street signs and sidewalks will be postponed until the fall due to scheduling conflicts. Hess also reported that construction on a 2024 CCLIP project will begin soon. The affected area will be from Sherman to Garfield roads and will replace 40 handicap sidewalk ramps. Hess stated that there will be lots of construction equipment in the area while the project is underway.
