Concealed carry legal in Osage City buildings

OSAGE CITY—The Osage City Council voted not to apply for an extension to stipulations of the new concealed carry law, effectively allowing legal carry within all municipal government buildings, effective July 1.

By opting out of the extension, the council separated itself from several area governments that took advantage of the six-month grace period.

Commissioners hear additional budget requests

LYNDON—Osage County Soil Conservation District Manager Lori Kuykendall and Keith Badger met with the Osage County Commission to discuss their budget request for 2014 at its regular Monday meeting.

“We’re asking for $27,000 again,” Lori Kuykendall said. “We asked for that last year and we got $26,000. The state will match county funds, up to $25,000, so we would like at least $25,000.”
