Maryville Mayor Renee Reidel read aloud a resignation letter from Council member Glenn Jonagan during the June 23 Maryville City Council meeting.
Effective immediately, Jonagan’s resignation comes during his second term, a term his letter said he never intended to finish. The council approved the resignation and will look for an individual to finish up the term prior to the 2014-15 budget process.
Also accepted at the council meeting were liquor licenses for the following businesses: A&G Restaurant, Applebee’s, ARAMARK, Bearcat Lanes, The Canteen, Carson’s Grille, HyVee, Maryville Elks Club, Molly’s, Murphy’s Bar and The Palms. Liquor by the drink on Sunday permits were approved for A&G Restaurant, Applebee’s, ARAMARK, Bearcat Lanes, The Canteen and Carson’s Grille. Packaged retail and Sunday retail permits were approved for Breaktime, Casey’s East and North, HyVee Gas, The City Star, Walgreen’s and Walmart. Beer by the drink permits were accepted for Mandarin Restaurant, Mozingo Golf Club House, Pagliai’s and Pizza Hut. Permits for both The City Star and The Palms are subject to the approval from the state background checks because of new ownership of each business.
Other items approved were:
• Request to hold the Nodaway County Fair Parade July 19, along West Seventh, North Main and come to a close at West 11th.
• Request to close Third Street between Ray and Grand Street to hold a block party July 4.
• Online bill pay for city water customers starting in July with a $1.25 convenience charge per online transaction for the customers.
• Ordinance to terminate a contract with Bill Medsker for hangar lease and execute a land lease for hangars with John Baumli at the Northwest Missouri Regional Airport.
• Development agreement with Maryville East Side Development LLC on the 40 acres of land east of Maryville for the purpose of developing a new car wash, a new Casey’s General Store and a four acre development that will be determined later. The city’s portion of the agreement is to pay an estimated $77,000 for a sanitary sewer system and storm water management. City Manager Greg McDanel said the city still has over $150,000 in the current infrastructure budget for projects like this agreement.
• Change order number one with Keller Construction in the amount of $9,500 for additional work to be done in the alleyway behind Maryville Glass and Lock that would fix a longtime drainage issue providing enough asphalt for trash trucks to drive on.
The council discussed restrictions with the current burn ordinance which allows Maryville citizens to burn yard waste three times a year. The council discussed the history of why the ordinance was established, which was to limit burnings in town that caused nuisance to neighbors. No action was taken but Reidel requested council seek input from citizens in coming weeks.
The city manager’s report included updates on:
• MoDOT approved the bid with JD Bishop Construction for the Munn Avenue Trail Project for the construction of a six-foot wide sidewalk that will stretch 2,063 linear feet along South Munn between South Avenue and Victory Lane. Construction will start the week of June 30 with a 75 calendar day timeline.
