Citing concerns brought to the Board of Aldermen regarding pedestrian crossing difficulties after completion of the Main Street project, the Board unanimously passed a resolution during the June 10th meeting to purchase two pedestrian crossings. The crossings will be located on Main Street at Front Street and Walnut Street.
The Mayor and Board had asked staff to look into the possibility of adding signalized pedestrian crossings. During the budget process, staff presented the Board with cost estimates and the Board chose to include two signals in the 2019 budget.
The posts will be 5” in diameter and will be black to match the decorative lighting found around the downtown area.
The cost estimate is $16,656.00 for both signals.
The Board also approved a resolution appointing the following residents to serve on the Board of Directors of the Industrial Development Authority of the City of Grain Valley, Missouri: Mike Switzer (term ending June 2020), Justin Tyson (term ending June 2020), Kim Roam (term ending June 2022), Paul Wooten (term ending June 2022), and Darryl Jones (term ending June 2024).
The Board also reappointed Brian Bray, Norm Combs, and Terry Hill to the Grain Valley Parks and Recreation Board for three year terms.
The next meeting of the Board of Aldermen will be held at 7:00pm on Monday, June 24th at City Hall.
