Mountain Grove City Council Approves Paving, Discusses Rental Inspections [AUDIO]

The Mountain Grove City Council addressed a couple of issues and passed a couple of bills into ordinance at their meeting last night. City Council approved all reports and an ordinance that put into writing what the municipal court had already been doing regarding probation sentencing. That was needed due to changes in state law. Also passed was a bill that allowed Mayor Crewse to enter into an agreement with MoDOT to pave Business 60 from city limits to city limits, and to pave Highway 95 from Business 60 south including the downtown square curb to curb. The cost to the city would be about $36-thousand dollars.

Council also heard a presentation from Fire Chief Mark Bushong about the need for a safety inspection for rental properties. Chief Bushong told council that he had recently responded to medical calls at rental properties in Mountain Grove that were not safe for the tenants and that there is no way to address that problem unless there is a complaint made…

…that says I can. :09

Bushong says that making sure rentals are safe will save lives…

…to make it safe. :17

Bushong says besides a smoke detector, homes should also need to have safe electrical systems…

…issue if it comes up. :21

In other business, council discussed a request from a vender at the farmer’s market that asked to sell eggs on the square after the market closed for the season. Council agreed that allowing after season farmers market sales would open up other problems. It was suggested that venders with products to sale after the farmer’s market closed for the season could post ads in the newspaper or radio and make sales that way.
