Message from Eastborough Police Department

Attention Citizens of Eastborough,

The Eastborough Police Department wants to take a minute and ask all of you for assistance in helping us respond to and prevent crime. Over the past year the officers and command staff noticed an increase of citizens calling the City Hall office to report certain situations, mainly suspicious characters and activities. We understand many of you either "didn't think it was an emergency" or you "didn't want to bother the officers". This practice hinders our response to calls for service. Please make sure you utilize 911 to report these incidents or any criminal activity.

If you are thinking to yourself: "I wish an officer was here now to see this." That is your primary clue to CALL 911! If you have a question for officers or need a house check or party signs please contact the City Hall office. If you are needing to talk to and officer after hours please choose "Option 4" on the City Hall voice mail system and an officer will get back to you ASAP. Kindly understand it could take a couple hours for the officer to contact you back as they are out on patrol. If you need immediate assistance for any pressing issue other than previously mentioned, call 911 and ask dispatch to give the on-duty Eastborough officer a message to call you.

Have a great Holiday Season!


Sincerely,
Sgt. Kevin Dorritie

Homicide Investigations ongoing near Eastborough

Attention Residents of Eastborough,

The Eastborough PD would like to take a moment and address some questions we received in regards to a pair of Wichita Police Dept. homicide investigations occurring in the “Rockwood / Post Oak” additions bordering Eastborough.

**Shortly after 11pm on Saturday 11/25/17 Emergency Services were called to a home in the 7500 Blk. of E. Huntington. The on duty EPD officer did respond to the address to assist Wichita PD. Two victims were located deceased, inside the home. This did not appear to be an random act according to Wichita Police Dept. information releases.

**On Sunday 11/26/17, at approximately 11:45 am in the 7800 Blk. of E. Pagent, police were called to investigate a suspicious vehicle. As the officers arrived they discovered a deceased 26-year-old male inside of that vehicle.

No arrests have been made in either of these cases. Wichita Police are asking anyone with information about this or any other case to please call Wichita Crime Stoppers at 267-2111.

The Eastborough Police Department will continue to assist Wichita Police Department as needed on any and all calls as it becomes necessary to prevent and deter crime and to assist in life threatening situations in our area. Furthermore, the Officers of the Eastborough Police Department will continue to proactively patrol our neighborhoods to deter any and all criminal activity. This being said, we ask that “If you see something, Say Something!”. Please refrain from calling the office number. All suspicious activity and emergency situations should be called into 911 immediately!

Sincerely,
Sgt. Kevin Dorritie

FEDERAL FLOOD INSURANCE NOW AVAILABLE IN THE CITY OF EASTBOROUGH, KS.

Washington, D.C. – The City of Eastborough has joined over 21,000 communities nationwide that are allowed to purchase federally backed flood insurance. This availability follows the community’s adoption and enforcement of ordinances to reduce flood losses and acceptance by the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

The City of Eastborough is now a participant in the NFIP effective on February 1, 2017. Residents of the City of Eastborough will be able to purchase flood insurance up to the limits under the Regular Phase of the program. However, there is a 30-day waiting period before flood insurance coverage goes into effect. For single-family dwellings, the building coverage limit is $250,000 and the contents coverage limit is $100,000. Renters can also protect their belongings by purchasing contents coverage.

Lenders must require borrowers whose properties are located in a designated flood hazard area to purchase flood insurance as a condition of receiving a federally backed mortgage loan in accordance with the Federal Disaster Protection Act of 1973.

The NFIP is implemented through the Federal Emergence Management Agency. There are over 5.5 million flood insurance policies in more than 21,000 participating communities nationwide.

Minneha Township Bond Election

The following information was provided to Eastborough City Hall by Minneha Township regarding the Bond Election Ballot that was delivered by mail to most residents this week:

MINNEHA TOWNSHIP
50 Saint Cloud Place
Wichita, Kansas 67230

Dear Minneha Township Residents:

You either have received, or will soon receive, a mail ballot on a proposal of your Township Board to issue general obligation bonds to build and equip a building to serve the Township and its residents. Here's why we are proposing this investment.

Currently the Township leases space to house its equipment which includes large road maintenance machines, street sweepers, etc. There are a number of drawbacks to the leasing arrangement:

  1. The leased property is situated in Andover, a substantial distance from our service area causing loss of travel time and increasing fuel costs.
  2. The property is leased to us on a month-to-month basis.
  3. Because of the location of the property, we are restricted in our hours of operation which could interfere with emergency snow removal and other services in night time hours.

We have acquired a building site south of Central and Greenwich Road. Plans have been prepared to house our equipment in a building which would also include a public meeting room for Minneha residents.

This can be financed by issuance of $700,000.00 in general obligation bonds with no increase whatsoever in the mill levy due in part to the savings set forth below.

If the proposal is adopted in the mail ballot:

  1. The Township would own the facility and not be subject to rent increases and use restrictions imposed in the typical lease.
  2. The location is central in our service area, conserving labor time and fuel costs.

Questions may be directed to Don Gragg at 733-9099
