Preston invites volunteers to help


Fri, Jul 5th, 2013
Posted in Preston Government

By Karen Reisner

The Preston City Council at their July 1 meeting discussed the Comprehensive Plan Committee, the Ronald McDonald Charity Cruise, and Goose Flat Park. The city is looking for interested volunteers to serve. Councilmen David Harrison and David Collett were absent.

City Administrator Joe Hoffman said the Planning and Zoning Commission is looking for some volunteers to represent various groups in the community to serve on the Comprehensive Plan Core Committee. This committee will guide the Comprehensive Plan update and will meet about six times in the next nine months. Hoffman estimated that there could be 10 to 20 members, adding that with a larger group, it is expected that not every member will be able to attend every meeting.

The committee will have two P and Z members and one council member. Councilman Charles Sparks will serve as the council member with Robert Maust filling in during any meeting Sparks can not attend. Interested citizens should submit their names at city hall by Monday, July 15.

The 2013 Ronald McDonald Charity Cruise will be through Preston between 2pm and 4pm on Sunday, July 28. The event will be held around the courthouse square. There will be 1,500 riders of which as many as 600 will be expected at one time.

Volunteers are needed to direct traffic, stamp rider cards, and so on. Kathy Dahl is coordinating the event. There will be food vendors and possibly a band. The council approved the closing of Main Street from St. Paul Street to St. Anthony Street and the closing of St. Anthony Street from Main Street to Fillmore Street as recommended by the police chief for the event.

The city will request that the county close Fillmore Street from Pleasant Street to Houston Street and St. Paul Street from Fillmore Street to Main Street.

Goose Flat Park planting areas have become very overgrown. Most of the original members of the garden club that planted and maintained the area are gone. Hoffman said there is a tremendous amount of work to be done and that it would take an unreasonable amount of staff time to do it.

Sparks who is on the Park Board noted that Heath Mensink who is chairman of that board could look at it and see what can be salvaged. One possibility is to remove the planting beds and replace them with grass that can be easily maintained. Mayor Kurt Reicks suggested they inform the public first to see if .....
