The Keytesville City Council held their regular meeting Tuesday night where several city improvements were discussed with some starting as early as next (June) month. Mayor Bob Littleton asks that residents be patient during this time.
The Council approved the purchase of five tons of poly-perm costing $600 and 24-tons of base gravel, all for road repairs.
They are also on their last leg of completing the much needed Helicopter Pad. The City is required to place advertisements asking for bid for the Helicopter Pad. The group has decided they will start the call for bids for the 36x36x6 inch concrete slab in the next couple of weeks.
Not only were there talks of city improvements, but also county improvements. Mayor Bob Littleton said, “This group agreed to stand behind the Missouri Work Ready Force Program because it will be beneficial to the community. This is a County project being headed by Lowell Newsom.
Lowell also presented the idea of the City of Keytesville taking part in an Economic Development Commitment along with other surrounding communities such as, Brunswick and Salisbury. The Council did not give their approval at Tuesday’s meeting but will meet again with Mr. Newsom at a later date to discuss the cost.
The City will be sending out the latest CCR or Consumer Confidence Ruling report along with resident’s water bills.
And last but not least, a year ago the city was losing over a million gallons of water a month. At Tuesday night’s meeting the current water loss has been reduced to 7.99% which is just over a hundred thousand gallons a month. The Department of Natural Resources requires a loss of 4-7%.
