For a second year in a row, the Leavenworth County Development Corporation has approved an annual budget without funding from the city of Basehor.

For a second year in a row, the Leavenworth County Development Corporation has approved an annual budget without funding from the city of Basehor.

But Steve Jack, executive director of LCDC, said he is scheduled to meet today with Basehor’s new city administrator.

“We’ll talk about the things we do,” Jack said.

Jack said he will see if there is interest in Basehor rejoining LCDC.

Leslee Rivarola became the Basehor city administrator earlier this month.

Basehor previously supported LCDC. But the city ended its participation with the economic development organization at the end of 2017. The Leavenworth County government and the cities of Leavenworth, Lansing and Tonganoxie continue to provide funding to LCDC.

Members of LCDC’s Board of Directors approved the organization’s 2019 budget Thursday.

Budgeted expenditures for 2019 total $368,187.

Leavenworth County will be contributing $82,833 directly to LCDC this year. The city of Leavenworth will pay the organization $48,472. The city of Lansing will pay $17,223 and Tonganoxie will pay $7,976, according to the budget presented during Thursday’s meeting.

Under the formula used to determine the contributions of local municipalities, Basehor would have been asked to contribute $10,775 this year if the city was still partnering with LCDC.

LCDC has other funding sources including private sector members as well as an annual golf tournament.

The Leavenworth County Port Authority, which receives funding from the county government, will pay LCDC $82,833.

Also Thursday, Jack provided an update about business prospects. Included in his report was an update about what is called Project Precision. LCDC officials typically call prospective projects by code names.

Jack previously talked to LCDC members about Project Precision in December. The project involves a company that is looking for a location for a North American headquarters and manufacturing facility.

The new Leavenworth Business and Technology Park was submitted for consideration.

Jack said Thursday that LCDC has invested a lot of time in the project. But he now classifies the project as being “inactive” for LCDC. That is because he has been told people involved in the location search are focusing on other cities.

However, Jack said no final decision has been made regarding the location for the facility.
