The release explains that the Sales Tax Revenue Bonds series, used for funding of the county sports complex, will be paid off soon, with the Commissioner’s wanting “to get together to start planning a positive future for the properties.”

Included among those specifically named as invited to the session are ASAF, or Atchison Sports and Fitness, Inc., a non-profit which oversees management and operations of the sports complex located behind the Atchison Elementary School; the Atchison County Ball Association, Atchison Mudcat Baseball, the Atchison Recreation Commission, the Benedictine College Athletic Department, Memorial Hall Trustees, the YMCA, Atchison’s USD 409 Board of Education, and the USD 377 Board of Education for the Atchison County Schools, which oversees the sports complex in Effingham.

The special meeting of the Atchison County Commission is scheduled for Tuesday evening at 6:00 at Memorial Hall, located at 819 Commercial Street, in Atchison.

The release says that to make sure enough seating is prepared for the special meeting, an RSVP by those attending should be sent to the Atchison County Clerk’s Office before Monday. To do so, attendees should call 913-804-6030 or email
