Chillicothe Council Pays for New School Pavement Markings

Monday evening, Chillicothe Council voted to pay for street painting and signage.

.

Dave Tatman saw his ordinance to spend $50,000 on painting streets for the new schools pass on first reading. They had to push through the legislation to get things done in time for school opening.

.

That had to wait for Columbia Gas to finish cutting into the pavement. But because of that, it's still a temporary situation - the paint on the temporary pavement is thin and meant to last only through this year until it's repaved next year.

.

But the new upright signage is permanent.

.

Tatman said some of the money will be spent on continuing to try to redirect uncooperative truck traffic around South Bridge and 7th streets.

.

The sewer rate hike will wait for its third reading.

A Chillicothe City Council committee has been requested to review the city’s ordinance on raising livestock within the city limits.

.

The request was made on Monday by Chillicothe Law Director Sherri Rutherford after her office was recently tasked with prosecuting a violation of section 505.14 of the Codified Ordinance for livestock and stockyards.

.

The matter arose following a complaint made by a city resident, whose neighbor- City Council Member Lana Fairchild, was raising a goat in their backyard for a 4-H project.

.

A criminal complaint was filed with city police and the defendant in the case pleaded not guilty to the charge. The case was ultimately dismissed upon request from the complainant, who stated they just want the city to address the issue of raising livestock within the city limits more clearly.
