The Maryville City Council approved the rezoning of three properties along East First Street during its regular meeting on March 26.

The properties owned by Laura Street Baptist Church, located at 1012, 1016 and 1020 East First Street, are currently zoned as R-4 multi-family residential. It was approved to change the zoning to C-3 commercial, allowing the church to build a 60-space parking lot.

A special use permit was approved for Tara McGuire for the property located at 322 East Jenkins, which is zoned as R-3 residential. McGuire plans to use the structure as a child development center with a 10- by 15-inch sign.

Williams Spurgeon Kuhl and Freshnock Architects, Inc. (WSKF), Kansas City, was approved earlier in March for architectural design services for a new public safety facility. Due to House Bill 2376, design-build is not an option for the facility as staff had originally planned. Staff has been working with the company to decrease fee costs.

The council approved the second change order with WSKF not to exceed $240,175. The change order included $199,575 for design development, construction of documents, schematic design and more along with $40,600 for vehicle exhaust commissioning, storm water study, video surveillance, surveying and voice and data cable design. This represents six percent of the total budget for the facility. According to City Manager Greg McDanel, architectural fees typically account for 10 percent of a project.

It was approved to purchase an $8,685 2017 Kawasaki SX 4×4 mule from Northwest Implement, Maryville, utilizing non-primary entitlement funds left from the Northwest Missouri Regional Airport apron rehabilitation project. If the funds are not used within the time frame, they are no longer available. The mule will be used at the airport for various duties.
