Infrastructure Sales Tax Projects

New Library

The new Tonganoxie Public Library is open for your patronage! The City took possession of the building following completion by JE Dunn; a project that came in on time and within budget. The Tonganoxie City Council approved a Lease Agreement with the Library Board at the March 2, 2020 City Council meeting. The Lease allows the Library Board to operate in the facility and to promote educational opportunities for the Community. The City will continue to cover the debt service for the bonds

issued to finance this project, which are scheduled to pay off in FY 2038, and in an amount of approximately $5.3M.
