Harrison returns to Preston City Council


Fri, Nov 11th, 2011
Posted in Government

Former council member David Harrison was one of three Preston citizens who offered a letter of interest to fill the remaining portion of Dr. Robert Sauer's four year term. The four sitting members of the council through a written vote appointed Harrison to fill the position for the remaining months left in his term at the council's November 7 meeting.

The other interested citizens were Scott Springer and Dave Keene. The vote was two for Harrison, one for Springer, and one for Keene.

Mayor Kurt Reicks said it was great to have three people willing to step up and do some community service. Harrison took the oath from City Administrator Joe Hoffman and was seated on the council.

Harrison agreed to serve as an ex-officio voting member on the Planning and Zoning commission and an ex-officio non-voting member on the Public Utilities Commission through the end of this year. These were committee positions held by Sauer.

With a very full agenda before the council there was a full house with about fifteen people from the public in attendance.

Additional No Parking on Chatfield Avenue

Public Works Director Bill Cox proposed additional no parking areas on Chatfield Avenue to alleviate traffic problems because of the narrow street. He acknowledged that the school had concerns about limited parking during concerts and sporting events.

Chief Matt Schultz and city staff had recommended a no parking zone on both sides of Chatfield Avenue from the school to Hwy 52. Reicks said with the future opening of Casey's Convenience Store there is a safety issue near Hwy 52. However, he felt the amount of proposed no parking was an overreaction at least until a problem arises with the opening of the store.

Councilman Charles Sparks suggested the parking be restricted from Hwy 52 to the driveway of the trailer court. The council approved the placement of about eight no parking signs to prohibit parking on both sides of Chatfield Avenue from Hwy 52 past the intersection of Circle Drive to the access driveway to the trailer court.
