Date/Time Change for City Council Meetings

Beginning on October 2, City Council meetings will be held on Tuesday evenings instead of Thursdays. All meetings will begin at 6 p.m.  

LEE’S SUMMIT, MO—At approximately 4:47 a.m. the National Weather Service issued a Severe Thunderstorm Warning for Jackson County, Missouri. As the storm moved through Lee’s Summit straight line wind caused significant damage to trees, overhead powerlines and fences. The damage to overhead lines resulted in power outages affecting approximately 13,500 customers in the Lee’s Summit area. A house was damaged due to a fallen tree.

After initial assessment, it appears the greatest impact from the storm was to the central portion of the city, including the downtown area where Downtown Days is being held. The wind heavily damaged vendor booths and other tents for the event. Due to the storm damage, the opening of Downtown Days will be delayed for Saturday, June 2nd. Check downtowndays.org for more information.

Public Works crews are working to clear roads.  First priority is clearing debris to open roads to traffic.  Crews are not picking up debris.

Residents are reminded to avoid downed power line or trees limbs that may be entangled in overhead lines. Always assume the line is energized. If it is arcing or poses a threat to life and property, call 911. To report an outage call KCP&L.
