Wegner offering to discuss roads with residents

Platte County 2nd District Commissioner Steve Wegner has offered to meet individually with area neighborhood groups who would like to discuss possible solutions for road and bridge issues with County Road District Number One.

Interested groups should call the county commission office at (816) 858-3333 to schedule a date and time for the meeting.

Several months ago, staff began working on a master plan that will address county transportation issues. In addition to hiring a consultant to assist with the project, the county has also appointed approximately 25 citizens to an oversight committee. In March, the county commission hosted a public meeting to gather citizen input and share information about the committee's progress so far.

Wegner stressed that the main purpose of these meetings with residents is not to hear complaints on specific issues, but instead to get ideas from people on solutions to the challenges the county is facing.

"I have said many times that the county is very aware that there are problems with our county road system," he said. "With these neighborhood meetings, I'd like to take the next step and talk about how we get these problems fixed."
