MARYVILLE, MO (2009-07-14) A number of internal city affairs were taken care of during last night's Maryville Council meeting.
The city hired Nodaway Valley Bank to provide banking services and function as the depository for the city.
Nodaway Valley was chosen among 3 banks that put in bids.
The city also hired Olsson and Associates to do engineering work for several stretches of the new trail system being built.
Olsson was hired for just under 50 thousand to design the portion of the trail that's known as the St. Gregory's safe routes to schools.
The city has gotten more than 2 hundred thousand dollars Federal Stimulus money to help pay for that.
The city manager also reported the paving of the Mozingo Golf cart paths has been slowed by this spring's wet weather, but the trails on the back 9 have been completed and the project is expected to be finished by August.
The city also agreed to contribute 7 hundred dollars toward the "Leadership Maryville" project, a series of training classes that's designed to create tomorrow's local leaders.
And the Maryville Council agreed to move forward with plans for a high-tech retrofit of the existing wastewater lagoons after benchmarking 3 similar projects working in Colorado.
That upgrade is being mandated by stricter environmental regulations going into effect in the next several years.
