Forester Hired to Assess Trees

Weston Bend State Park Hosts Fall Family Fun Day

Council Turns Back Attempt to Undo 30 Year old Water Agreements

An attempt to make the oldest and poorest of Weston’s residents pay more for water and sewer was quashed in a 2-3 vote by the Weston Board of Aldermen Monday night. Mayor Kent Stelljes broke a 2-2 tie vote on the question of either enforcing a city ordinance requiring each water consumer to have their own water meter or doing away with the ordinance.

Join in and have some fall fun! Bring the family to the park for an exciting day in the outdoors this Saturday at Weston Bend State Park.  Activities will take place at the Open Shelter in the park from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.
There will be demonstrations of: blacksmithing, Dutch Oven cooking, and making cider with a cider press.
There will also be activities for all ages, including: bird hikes, crafts for kids, and games. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, call 816-640-5443.
The park is located on Hwy. 45 just south of the intersection of Hwy. 45/273 and JJ Hwys.

Weston will hire a well-knows Urban Forester, Michael Dougherty, Tree Management Company, Lenexa, to assess trees near proposed storm sewer work planned for Spring and Washington Streets. The city has 16 easements still to acquire before the work can begin
