|Next Tuesday evening, Oct. 17, Parkville
Board of Aldermen and staff will address several
key issues for the Parkville community.
A town hall style meeting has been
scheduled for 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 17 in
the board room at city hall. The intent is to
discuss updates and identify community preferences
regarding Burlington Northern Santa Fes
(BNSFs) plans for a second track through
Parkville. Information on this issue and alternatives
is now on the Citys webpage at www.parkvillemo.com/BNSF/BNSF1.htm.
The information includes maps and a summary presented
during the three city-sponsored public meetings
held on Sept. 28. There is also a link to an online
questionnaire at the end of the page. All responses
must be submitted no later than Monday, Oct. 16.
Following the public forum, two other major issues
will be addressed at the 7 p.m. regular board
of aldermen meeting that night. The first is a
detailed presentation by the management team at
Hunt Martin Materials to address on-going mine
blasting concerns. The second item will be a presentation
concerning potential plans by the Kansas City
Board of Public Utilities (KCBPU) for an additional
power plant across the river. KCBPU states this
is information only since they are
still researching their needs.
