Merriam chooses new council member amid concerns over pool, community center upgrades

Feb 28, 2017 - The Kansas City Star

Three candidates for a vacated seat on the Merriam City Council made their cases before council members and Mayor Ken Sissom on Monday.

Not surprisingly, a proposed new pool and community center for the city dominated the discussion.

Brian Knaff emerged as the winner, besting Stoney Bogan and Joe Kronawitter for the Ward Two seat vacated by Jim Wymer, who resigned for health reasons. Knaff, whom Wymer asked to apply for his seat, will make his debut at the council's March 13 meeting.
