The Mexico City Council hears feedback from residents during a public hearing during tonight’s (Monday) meeting.
The public hearing was held to allow residents the share their opinion on whether Garfield Park should be named Tyronn Lue Park.
Four of the more than a dozen citizens spoke in favor of the name change which was unanimously approved at the July 11 meeting of the Mexico Park Board.
Art Bradshaw presented the Council with a petition signed by more than 200 residents in support of the renaming.
The Council will have an ordinance on the next meeting agenda to approve or deny regarding the name change.
In other council business, they approved a contract with the Mexico Senior Center for fourteen thousand dollars to help offset their expenses and approved the lease of a hangar at the Mexico Memorial Airport to Larry Dunn and amended part of the city code removing language related to collecting a three dollar court fee that was deemed unconstitutional by the Missouri Supreme Court.
During the public comment portion of the meeting, a resident asked the council to review the ordinance involving placement of garage sale signs.
