One thought on “Zoning items, grant program on Thursday’s UG Commission agenda”

  1. Seems like a great idea. Mayor Alvey, come on over to the west side of town where we have not seen one street sweeper, lawn mower, or anything the government provides..and use your power of eminent domain….your tax base is running short.

    • Donahoo and 123rd Street, Pump Station 61 force main improvements, resolution. The project starts at Donahoo and 123rd, goes north on 123rd to N. 123rd Terrace, then ends at Wingfoot Drive.
