The Laurie Board of Aldermen Meeting this week was short and simple. That’s according to City Clerk Ron Clarke who says they held the second reading for an ordinance for the city to take over the road maintenance of the Wellington Woods subdivision. Clarke says this isn’t to make the subdivision part of city limits, just to provide the maintenance. Other agenda items discussed included the 2017 budget, as well as the street paving and sidewalk projects. Clarke says the budget was passed but they’ve experienced a minor delay in the sidewalk project. He says MoDOT will have to resurvey the intersection before they can proceed.
