LEXINGTON, Mo. — A full agenda is proposed for Tuesday night’s meeting of the Lexington City Council.

The meeting will begin with three minutes of citizens participation, where residents of Lexington will be welcome to present any comments or concern to the council. This will be followed by council’s expected approval of resignations for Christina Caldwell from the Park Board, with immediate effect, and Randy Shackelford, Lexington Municipal Judge, effective December 31. Jim Hall, who has been appointed to succeed Shackelford as Municipal Judge, is likely to be confirmed by the council.

Council will then hear reports from the city collector, city treasurer and a representative from the municipal court.

Water funding options, including discussion of a possible new source or water plant, will then be brought forward. An ordinance updating the existing police personnel board ordinance to comply with state law will be considered followed by a review of applicants for the vacant street supervisor position.

The state audit report will be presented at the meeting as well, followed by a public hearing for citizens to comment on the Phase III Water Project.

Reports from committees, department heads, the city administrator and Mayor Jerry Brown will round out the meeting, but not before council members consider tabled items, including an ambulance contract with Waverly, proposals for Water/WWTP software and historic street lights. Council will then adjourn to an executive session.

One item missing from the agenda, a past proposal to consolidate the Lexington Police Department with the Lafayette County Sheriff’s Office, may be discussed at a future meeting, however it is not clear if council members are still considering the proposed plan.

The meeting is slated to get underway at 7:00 p.m. Tuesday at Lexington City Hall.
