Falls City Council Meets
09/13/2017

(KLZA)--The Falls City Council has approved a request for no parking signs between 10th and 11th Street on the west side of Fulton Street.

During the City Council meeting on September 6th, City Administrator Gary Jorn explained Falls City School District,  Transportation Director Rob  Baker asked if the City would consider a request for a no-parking designation along the street adjacent to South Elementary School. Baker raised concerns about parents letting their children out of vehicles on the west side of  Fulton Street and kids crossing the street without utilizing the cross walks.

Baker noted the school district is considering some reconfiguring of the school bus loading zone at South School, including moving off-street parking to the south of the school building.  

The request was approved unanimously.

The Council also heard an update from the Lane Leadership Group on the splash pad project they want to do at Dallas Jones Park.

Mitch Merz said that approximately 80-percent of the funding has been raised with other donors ready to contribute. He also noted there are several grant applications the group is waiting to hear back from.

Merz did ask the Council if the City would be willing to be the purchaser of the equipment and award the bid for the project in order to save money on taxes.  The Lane Leadership Group is not tax exempt.

During the conversation it was suggested the Richardson Foundation be contacted as well to see if they could serve as the purchaser. 

The Council took no action on the matter.
