Councilman Jacob Black thanked the volunteers for helping with the Missouri Day Festival events. He also said businesses were swamped.

Mayor Nick McHargue said the festival went well, but indicated there were some comments about a need for more restrooms for persons watching the parade.

City Administrator, Kerry Sampson thanked scouts for delivering city surveys along with the notices seeking items for the Community Food Pantry. Community Developer,
Ralph Boots, thanked Hy-Vee for donating sacks for those items.

Councilman Black mentioned plans for a business survey. He also talked about feedback he's received regarding the friendliness of the Police Department.

Building Inspector and Code Enforcement Officer, Donnie Vandevender, said foundation work for Lamplighter Apartments is planned this winter with construction to begin in March or April depending on the weather.

Vandevender also mentioned a Davita Dialysis business is to locate in a portion of the building once housing an Easter's store.

A Family Dollar store also is to occupy some of the former Easter's space. Trenton Community Development Director Boots said Family Dollar should move in pretty quickly.

Boots indicated he's received several inquiries from businesses. He's asking persons with a commercial building for rent in Trenton to contact him so it can be included on a list.

The Trenton City Council last night approved an agreement with the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission which allows Trenton to use surface transportation funds for engineering services. It's for the proposed 17th Street bridge replacement project.

The Trenton Council approved an ordinance granting approval to consolidate 2 lots at McDonald's. It allows McDonald's to expand its drive-through service.

The Council approved amendments to 2 sign-related ordinances.

The Council approved Mayor McHargue's appointment of Curtis Crawford to the Park Board to replace Mike Burchett, who's work schedule prevents him from attending meetings.

A 2 year lease for Tim Miller to farm City owned land at the north edge of Trenton is nearing its end date. The City Council is asking City Attorney, Tara Walker to determine whether the next lease could be obtained via an auction, whether the existing agreement with Miller could be extended, or whether another bidding process would be necessary. Miller attended last night's City Council meeting.

All of the City Council votes were unanimous among the 7 members attending. Kenneth Ewing was absent.

The City did not receive any bids to carpet the basement at City Hall. Bids will again be sought for the project.
