CARROLLTON, Mo. – During the City Council meeting Monday, May 16, 2016, at Carrollton City Hall, council approved a change in traffic patterns and parking set ups at two different ball fields in town.

Carrollton Police Chief Robert Turner asked for these changes due to safety concerns and problems with traffic flow at the city park field north of 6th Street and the Martin Park ballfield at 3rd and Ely Streets.

McCumber Drive will be a southbound one way with three handicapped parking spots on the east side.

Council also approved a new animal control ordinance to put the town in compliance with state law. You can view that ordinance by clicking below.
