CONCORDIA, Mo. — Alderpersons in Concordia will consider new zoning ordinances for schools in Concordia, among other items of business, at Monday evening’s Board of Aldermen meeting.

An agenda indicates that a number of times of old business will be considered, including ordinances which would create the Concordia R-2 Elementary School and High School zones.

In addition, a proposed ordinance would reduce the speed limit on Southwest 13th Street, South West Street and Southwest 12th Terrace to 15 miles per hour.

New business will include the proclamation of the week of May 20-26 as “Buddy Poppy Days” within the city, as well as the week of May 13-19, which will be proclaimed “National Police Week”.

Also, May 13-19 will be designated as “Skilled Nursing Care Week in Concirdia,” with an official proclamation slated to be signed at the Good Shepherd Care Community May 14.

A bill will be introduced and considered accepting the engineering report of the Southwest Lagoon by Shulte Engineering and financing for the project will also be discussed.

A number of administrative issues will also be discussed, including a proposal authorizing the execution of an agreement for police dispatching in Concordia with the City of Higginsville through September 30, 2019, at an annual cost of $7,800.

The Concordia Board of Aldermen will meet at 7:00 p.m. Monday in room 203 of the Concordia Community Building.
