Maryville Council addresses MPS issues
Maryville, MO (2013-05-14)
The Maryville City Council approved a contract with a Kansas City architectural firm to provide design services for a potential new Public Safety facility.
Maryville Public Safety Director Keith Wood says W-S-K-and F Architects over the next 90 days will conduct a feasibility study concerning a new building.
The Council also discussed the possibility of a consolidated 9-1-1 operation for Nodaway County. Currently 9-1-1 emergency calls are handled separately by the Nodaway County Sheriff's department and Maryville Public Safety. Wood says the issue is worth reviewing but feels 9-1-1 is working well in its current set up.
No formal action on 9-1-1 services was taken during last night's meeting. In other issues, the Maryville City Council continued discussions concerning the 19 vs. 21 year old age limit for entry into drinking establishments. The council directed the city staff to prepare an ordinance changing the entry age to 21 for consideration at a meeting later this summer.
