The analysis of the factors involved in these problems, as well as the design of cost effective solutions, is complex. The analysis involves considering the specifics of the soil on site, depth and width of footing and foundation wall, material of construction, structural damage, surveys of actual structure movement, grading and drainage around the perimeter of the house, condition of structural elements within crawl space, evidence of cracking or deflection of basement walls, evidence of water in basement, and possible other considerations.
There are a wide variety of remedies which are in part dependent upon proper analysis of the problems. These could include grading around the house and re-directing downspouts or roof drainage away from the foundation. It is possible to jack up a structure and remove and reconstruct footings and foundation walls to bring them into code compliance. This is very costly, and it is common to provide additional support to the house foundation in lieu of complete reconstruction. This option requires a Kansas Professional Engineer stamp of the drawings for the foundation repair.
All footing and foundation repair work, with limited exceptions such as tuck-pointing of block walls, will require a licensed contractor, a permit, City inspections, and engineered plans. It is up to the homeowner to perform due diligence in selecting the contractor and engineer to perform the work. Homeowner choices include:a. Retain a Kansas Professional Engineer to evaluate the site and footing-foundation problems, then design a solution. The homeowner may then solicit bids from various contractors to perform the specified work.b. Seek proposals from various contractors, who will retain an engineer as needed.
Contracting practices which protect homeowners include the following:a. Solicit multiple proposals b. Check contractor referencesc. Verify that the contractor is licensed, pulls the required permits, and obtains inspectionsd. Ask the contractor for verification that he is addressing all code deficiencies, including site drainage, attachment of structure to foundation, etc.e. Do not agree to pay until the work is completed satisfactorily

In the early days, fire stations were strategically located so the crews could quickly get to burning buildings. Obviously, time is an important aspect of firefighting, because flames can rapidly spread through a building. The ability to quickly respond to a fire provides more time to rescue people inside, and save property by suppressing the blaze in the early stages. It soon became apparent that the firefighter's ability to "get there fast" could be used for other types of emergency response, such as heart attacks, strokes and trauma.
Four minutes is a critical time frame for someone who has experienced a heart attack, injury, or other illness that makes them stop breathing. The heart and brain have a better chance of full recovery if they receive oxygen in four minutes or less. After that, a person can suffer brain damage or worse. Our firefighters, many of them educated to the level of paramedic, can use life saving techniques including defibrillation and medications to help prevent death or permanent injury. These life saving techniques are much more effective if they can get to a patient within the first four minutes.
The Andover Fire Station is part of a much larger dispatch system. The system is designed to provide adequate emergency coverage for the citizens who live here, by carefully managing response resources. Fire stations are not isolated or randomly located. They are strategically positioned to provide the best coverage with the least expenditure of resources.
No Contest: You have the option to plea no contest to the City’s charge. Upon a plea of no contest, the Judge will enter a finding of guilty and order a fine, jail time or other sentence. A plea of no contest is not an admission of guilt or fault and cannot be used against you in a civil suit for damages.
To appeal, the defendant must post an appearance bond in an amount determined by the Municipal Judge, file proper notice with a municipal court clerk, serve notice on the City Prosecutor and appear in Butler County District Court, El Dorado, Kansas.
These requirements are subject to a specific time limit which must be complied with by the defendant.
