Spickard City Council tackles dog control

Spickard, Missouri

The Spickard City Council at its meeting approved a proposal to close part of a street.

Richard Schooler presented the proposal to close Water Street next to his property. Paperwork will be done with Grundy County to make the street closure official. The council approved signing a Special Road District Agreement.

The Council also accepted council member Alan Tharp’s resignation and approved refunding a deposit to Carolyn Brown. Maggie George and Frank Felder were sworn in for their council positions.

Seth Cox with the Grundy County Sheriff’s Office attended the meeting to help with dog issues. He reported there was a possibility Spickard could appoint a City Marshall to enforce ordinances dealing with the dog problem. Cox said he would check into the law and report his findings to the council. Mayor Jesse Richmond discussed other options for solving the dog problem.

The council decided to wait to make a decision about other steps to take.
