Unofficial November 2014 Council Minutes have been posted to Council Page
The City was under the impression that reseeding of the water pipeline replacement was part of the Water Improvement Project, but learned otherwise and the contractor will not be reseeding. The Council has approved to provide fescue seed for those areas. Property owners will have to put down the seed themselves, but the seed will be available at City Hall. If you would like seed, please bring a container for the seed. It can be picked up during normal City Hall hours.
The council has passed Ordinance No. 169 requiring ALL DOGS and CATS to be registered.. This Ordinance can be found on the Events page. It will be published in The Fort Scott Tribune and will become effective January 1, 2015.
CITY HALL WILL BE CLOSED MONDAY, NOVEMBER 24, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 27, AND FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 28.
What project do you think the City should do next? With the winding down of the Water Improvement Project a new project needs to be considered. There are plastic gas lines that need replaced and gas lines from the Southern Star meter to the town border station that need reburied. The streets need attention. Building a multi-purpose storm shelter that would house the Community Center, City Hall, and the Library. Can you think of any other things that you would like to see the City do?
Name the Lake? - Currently the lake is called Uniontown School Pond. Do you want to keep that name for the lake/pond or would you like to suggest something different. We only had one suggestion for a new name, please let us know what you think.
The Maintenance Department is now working ten hour days Monday through Thursday on a trial basis. Keep that in mind when you wish to have the maintenance department shut off or turn on utilities.
The Water Improvement Project is finished. If you are still experiencing dirt settling where they put in the pipes or meters, please contact City Hall. The contractor will come back to fix these areas once we get all of them located.
Marbery Concrete was awarded the contract for the Union Street Culvert Project. Hopefully construction will begin before December 1.
