The water might have receded for now, but Weston City Hall’s relocation will last for a while longer.
Prior to the Missouri River flooding in late March, the city hall, which is located in low land at the bottom of Main Street, was relocated to the city’s police department, 725 Market Street.
After a special board of aldermen meeting last week, mayor Cliff Harvey and the board decided to keep city hall away from danger. Flooding concerns are far from over, with a lot of cleanup necessary on Main Street to make it useable and the potential for more flooding as snows melt to the north.
The payment drop box from the city hall parking lot has been relocated in front of the police station to allow residents to drop off water bill payments. All mail may still be posted to 300 Main Street and citizens are welcome to visit city hall at the police station to make direct payments to city collector Tami Weaver. Parking for city hall business is available across the street from the police station and handicapped visitors may call 640-2752 and staff can come outside to assist.
Meetings, including municipal court and board of aldermen meetings, will be held at the West Platte Fire District Station, 17870 Highway 45. Any changes to the relocation plan will be posted on the city website at westonmo.us.
