Trinity Lutheran Church leaders are still interested in leasing the former sanctuary in the Douglas County Public Works administration building, 1242 Mass.

Church leaders raised that possibility several months ago and will present a lease proposal at tonight's County Commission meeting. Among the lease proposals are a rent of $10 a month for five years with an option to extend.

The former sanctuary area is used for storage by the county and needs renovations. The building is a former Assembly of God Church.

Also on the agenda:

¢ A request for a conditional-use permit to allow for revisions to Victorian Veranda Bed & Breakfast property, 1431 N. 1900 Road, owned by Rob and Beverly Phillips.

¢ Replacement of a culvert at 572 E. 1850 Road.

¢ Consider various agreements for a cluster development belonging to Gerald and Sharon Dwyer, 959 E. 1100 Road.

¢ Conduct a public hearing for vacation of East 700 Road from North 1800 Road to North 1900 Road; consider a resolution vacating the road.

¢ Conduct a public hearing for declaring a minimum maintenance designation for East 700 Road from North 1900 Road to North 2000 Road; then consider a resolution for the designation.

¢ Consider authorization to solicit bids for reconstruction of a portion of Douglas County Route 1055 in Baldwin City, also known as Sixth Street.

Commissioners meet at 6:35 p.m. on the second floor of the courthouse, 1100 Mass.

finally cool has a logical decision. if the shelter needs to be in a target neighborhood for the 'neighborhood' to continue to be low income, what a wonderful place, right on Mass street and next to a lawyer's office. Too bad the old reverend Steve Allen isn't around, he would preach the gospel to those folks and show them how to dress in some real duds.

"after all church is a business"Uh... no, not by law. Otherwise, I'd put my entire 401k into the Mormons.

I will pay $20.00 a month for it. IT should rent for retail value, after all church is a business.

The room is in bad shape. If Trinty has to pay to fix it up $10 is fair.

I grew up in Trinity Luth and always thought that the church @ 13 & N.H. was adequate. When they added on and made a gymnasium, I felt that this was an unnecessary expense. I thought a church was for meditation and worship..not for entertainment!
