Canton considers request to vacate alley


Fri, May 23rd, 2014
Posted in Canton Government

Canton residents Jamie and Holly Knutson were present and made a request for the city to vacate an alley at the May 14 meeting of the Canton City Council.

The alley runs between the Knutson and Newman properties in Canton and is not in use. Mayor Donivee Johnson compared a survey presented by the Knutsons with one done for the old school and noted that part of the alley runs under the school and was never abandoned when the school was built. The council discussed whether the portion under the school should also be vacated if they granted the Knutsons’ request, but ultimately decided not to do so at this time.

The council determined that there was no reason not to vacate the alley as requested. It was agreed that the alley has never been and never will be used by the City. Another portion of roadway adjacent to the Knutson property was also briefly discussed, but the council stated it would not abandon that property as it would be necessary for any development in that direction.

The cost of the vacation is to be split between the property owners. The council will look into the cost and take the steps necessary to vacate the alley.

Canton Day Off

Councilor Cindy Shanks provided an update on the plans for Canton Day Off. A complete schedule of events is available online at www.cantondayoff.com. Anyone interested in participating can now sign up online for the parade, 5k run/walk, Boomer Backyard BBQ Cook Off and the Bloody Mary contest. T-shirts are now available online for $20-$22. Order by July 15 to receive in time for Canton Day Off.

All planters for Adopt-a-Planter have been adopted for the summer. They will be decorated and judged during Canton Day Off.

The city is still seeking food vendors for the occasion. If interested, please contact the City Clerk’s office at (507) 743-5000.

The council reviewed and approved a draft of an Aid Agreement between Canton and Harmony for assistance by means of the services and equipment of the Harmony Fire Department for the Canton Day Off fireworks planned for August 17.
