Our neighbors at the Kansas City, Missouri Police Department are offering free personal safety seminars to women on Saturday, April 28th and again on Saturday, May 5th. While the course is free, reservations are still required. Call 816.413.3500 or email email@example.com.
The Community Cleanup Event will be held on May 5th at the Super Splash Parking lot from 8:00am to 3:00pm. Volunteers are still needed with both community collections and at the collection site. To volunteer, please contact staff at 737-6014 or the Raytown Chamber at 353-8500.
Staff is assisting the design consultant to locate utilities as part of the Streetscape project. The consultant needed more exact information to determine if traffic signal pole foundations would fit as designed without the need to relocate utilities. The storm sewer has been located and excavation is still required to determine the exact location of the fiber optic lines in the area.
Crews completed a repair to a collapsed sanitary sewer line by replacing 30 feet of 8” sanitary sewer main at 10504 57th Terrace and repaired two storm boxes in the 7200 block of Maywood.
