June 25, 2019 - 10:40 am

The Wichita City Council made quick work of its agenda at Tuesday's meeting.

The council deferred for one week a motion to sign a use and lease agreement for a new hotel at Eisenhower National Airport.

The group approved a $2.1 million bid for reconstructing the Mount Vernon and Hillside intersection in southeast Wichita.

At the end of the meeting, Mayor Jeff Longwell made comments regarding the city's 2019 All-America City award.

"Congratulations to everyone involved with this.  It is truly a collaborative effort from staff, from elected’s from the community leaders."

Wichita previously won the award in 1961, 1993, 1999 and 2009.
