Merriam considers helping residents pay for home projects

Under a plan proposed at the Merriam City Council’s regular meeting Monday, the city would pay 20 percent of the cost of a host of exterior improvements to non-apartment residential properties. Residents with projects that cost at least $4,000 would be eligible, Bryan Dyer, Merriam’s community development director, told members. Under the proposal, the city would pay a minimum of $800 and a maximum of $2,500 for a single project.

SevenDays events to spread messages of kindness, diversity

The SevenDays events are focused on spreading a message of kindness, while promoting diversity among people of differing races, religion, and cultures. The SevenDays organization was started in response to the April 13, 2014, shootings at the Jewish Community Campus and Village Shalom in Overland Park. A white supremacist killed Corporon’s father and son, William Corporon and Reat Griffin Underwood. He then killed Terri LaManno, the wife of Jim LaManno.
