Street light
changes okayed
by aldermen

Landmark reporter

Platte City Mayor Frank Offutt reported to board of aldermen members at last week's meeting that the designs are moving forward for the next group of capital improvement/street projects.

Final designs for the next phase are due by Dec. 28.

Also at the meeting, board members approved street light changes around the Platte County Courthouse.

The approval was for three fixtures surrounding the courthouse to be changed from closed to open fixtures, as seen at other fixtures throughout Platte City. The city also received a request from the county to install a light at the alley on the west side of the courthouse. Prior to the meeting, there was no light at that location.

In other action, City Administrator Keith Moody updated the board on the selection process for the public works superintendent. Moody stated that Nov. 30 will be the interview date for the position.
