Memorial Bench Planned in Memory of Karyn Pickering

The Grant City Council voted at their regular meeting last Wednesday night to give Shirley Wallace and Ginny Quick permission to build a memorial bench in memory of Karyn Pickering in front of where the Pixie Building used to be.

Economic Developer Tyler Steele reported that he was working with prospective businesses and setting up mentoring for them. He reported that the Worth County Progress Organization will be doing the annual golf tournament once again. He said that he was looking into doing another Fall Festival and make it longer, possibly by incorporating other events and hold it on the square. He reported that Community Services is seeking a location for a community garden.

After the passage of the Street Bond Issue, Public Works Director Carl Staton reported that he has drawn up a map and cost estimates to pave streets in Grant City.

The council voted to put a measure on the August 2nd ballot seeking the continuation of the city use tax for out of state vehicles.

The council voted to donate $500 to the Northwest Missouri Enterprise Facilitation.

The city is looking at different options to replace the recycling bin that was recently removed from the school. They are also looking at pool prices for summer.
